Been looking for something fun and low impact to help you get a bit more movement in your life?
Maybe you’re just after a body-positive exercise class.
Or even just something where you can just bust out some dance moves.
Well, I’ve got great news for you. BELLY DANCE can do all of these things!
Not just a staple for the middle eastern restaurants, belly dance is:
An amazing low impact way to get moving
Able to be done by anyone of any body shape, age or fitness level
A great alternative to cardio classes at the gym
Useful in everyday life as you never know when an instant dance party is going to appear!
What do we do in a belly dance class?
Let me help you peek behind the curtain:
First, we warm up our bodies and push the day out of our minds.
Next, we will explore how to move our bodies with some simple repetitions to really help you get the moves.
Then we do a little combo to put together the moves you just learned to some funky songs.
Lastly, we do a quick cool down before we return the world outside the studio.
It’s such a fun class that you won’t know why you hadn’t tried it before!
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothes that are easy to move in. Leggings, tracksuit or yoga pants are preferable over skirts so that the teacher can see what you’re doing and help adjust you so you get the best out of the move. Don’t worry if you don’t have a hip scarf, we have some you can borrow in class!
What should I bring?
Yourself. A water bottle. A sense of adventure.
We generally dance barefoot, but if you have knee issues, we recommend ballet scuffs/slippers or dance shoes.
Note: (Non-dance) sneakers and day shoes are allowed on the studio floors.
Who are these classes for?
This class is for everyone. Don’t believe me? Let’s see….
Never ever danced (not even a session of lounge room disco)? Come see what you’ve been missing.
Been dancing since you were 3yo? Love it, come see what we do.
Too old (physical or mentally)? Not for this. Discover what you can do any any age.
Can’t run/jog/hate the gym? Us too! That’s why we dance!
Too fat / thin / got a booty or boobs? Congratulations, you have a body, just like us! Come and see what it can do!
Introvert? It’s ok, we don’t talk much, we all just want to dance!
Got kids? Us too. Trust me you deserve this.
Have 2 left hips / left feet / no coordination? We’ve all been there (seriously!). Belly dancing promotes coordination and positive mental health.
Human? Yup. It’s an affliction many of us have. Good thing dance is for humans.
