Egyptian Dance for Health & Posture

What is it?

Ancient and mysterious Middle-East Dance, also know as The Dance Of The Burning Sands, is based on the natural organic movement of the body. Belly dance, as it is known in the West,  is easy to grasp and looks fantastic on women & girls of all ages, sizes and levels of fitness. The gentle moves make it perfect for absolute beginners.

Express yourself through this sophisticated, sensuous, mesmerizing, spiritual and irrisistable centuries-old art form of ancient dance from the time when the Pharaohs ruled Egypt more than 5,000 years ago.

"Mum to 6 children myself, I know only too well the changes a pregnancy imposes on a woman’s body, mind and spirit. Egyptian Dance offers a fantastic motivation to stay beautiful and gorgeous throughout your pregnancy and staying in touch with your inner Goddess at a time when morale can be low as your body changes to accommodate your growing baby."

How long is a class?
Each class is 1 hour and includes warm-up/cool-down time.

What's expected of me?

No previous experience or special dance outfit is required, however, you do need to wear a long loose flowing skirt, comfortable t-shirt and an informal 'hip-scarf'. Bring a bottle of water.

Come along and have great fun!
