BEGINNERS BELLY DANCE

Always wanted to try belly dancing, but never gave it a go?  This one off workshop is an ideal opportunity to see if belly dancing is for you.  All new dancers are welcome as no previous dance experience is needed, and we don't even bare our bellies!  In this workshop we will cover a dancer's warm-up, posture and how to dance safely, torso and arm movements, and common belly dance steps and terminology, all in a supportive environment.  As with all dance forms, belly dancing promotes creativity and self-expression, strength, confidence and body awareness, all through the art of moving to music.
