All classes are a general level – suitable for students who have some dance experience as well as those who have already grasped the basic techniques and possess some understanding of the different styles of dance and Arabic rhythms. No special level of fitness is required. The aim will be to develop creativity and the capacity to improve, by providing a grounding in bellydance technique and achieving familiarity with Arabic music and rhythm. Classes will begin with a warm-up and stretch and end in a cool-down in order to minimise the risk of injury. Choreographs will be taught using the techniques and dance moves learnt in class. Any loose, comfortable clothing is appropriate. Students may wish to wear flat shoes with a slippery sole, although I personally prefer to dance barefoot. Coin belts and chiffon veils may be desirable at a later stage. Handouts of choreography and general information on bellydance will be available at each class.
