Belly Dance Secrets

BELLY DANCE SECRETS

Teaching classes centred on fitness and fun. Fun routines to music you will love - beautiful belly dancing fused with sexy Latin and fun old-school styles.

A highly effective, low-impact way to dance your core muscles into shape.

90 minutes gives us time to work hard but also learn technique and routines so you know exactly what you are doing without having to feel you are playing catch-up.

Belly dance moves are combined with the best bits of Latin and bollywood, and even a little fun disco dancing. You will hear some arabic music and some old favourites to get you in the dancing mood.

Sessions will start with a thorough warm-up including simple fun routines to feel-good music - follow along adding your own style with the freedom of not having to get everything 'right', just play with the moves.

Technique will follow, so moves are explained and demonstrated clearly. Moves are then put together in sequences which will be put to music, so by the end you will have learnt a routine (maybe a party piece for Christmas!).

The class will finish off with a cool-down to keep your muscles in good shape.

Belly dancing is a beautiful dance art but not great for a standard dance floor. For this reason styles that are great for the dance floor (salsa, disco etc) are included in class. A little salsa footwork and a lot of Belly Dance styling looks amazing, same with other styles - Belly Dance moves will add the zing.

It is a myth that Latin dances are all about the hips, the sexy wiggle actually comes from the ribcage and core control (something belly dancers do really well) - and that is not just for women, men need it too (Bachata is lead by the upper body). So for your Latin dancing, invest in a DVD to learn great styling options.

Zumba is energetic and can easily look better, tone you up more and be safer with excellent core control movements. But how would adding crunches look awesome? Belly Dance moves would!

To improve shimmies, hip fluidity and sexy moves like body rolls, try a DVD.

Reggaeton is largely Belly Dance with attitude, Street and Bollywood include less intense versions of Belly Dance moves so try a DVD to tighten up your moves and see new variations on them.

The bottom line is that Belly Dancing teaches body isolation and core core control which can then be applied to any dance style - lots of Ballroom teachers advocate learning a little Belly body isolation. So try some classes or a DVD.
