BELLYDANCE - is fun, is good for the mind, body and soul and is open to all ages, shape, size or ability

Bellydance originated from Egypt in the 18c by travelling ladies/gypsies known as Ghawazee
This type of dance today is popular world-wide and danced mainly by women with varying style of technique, but the basis of all styles would include the shimmy, hip hits and body undulations.
The beauty of Bellydance is once you have mastered the basic moves you can dance to any music, even creating your own choreography, however, the teacher would commonly sort the choreography using the moves the class have learnt. The U3A Bellydance Group have fun in class learning the moves and choreography and there is room for each individual to grow and reach their own potential. There are so many styles/techniques to examine and try out.
We meet on a Monday at Kempsey Village Hall once a fortnight from 2.00 ā€“ 3.30pm, please see group list on web site for dates.
Bellydance can be performed as a group or as a duet or as solo. Sometimes props are used i.e. Veil, cane stick, zills, sword or tambourine.
Some of the personal benefits Bellydance can offer:

Stress reduction
Improved muscle tone
Flexibility
Memory
Confidence
Self-esteem
Dance friends/relationships

I have been Bellydancing for over 10 years and still attend three different classes every week where Iā€™m still learning, you never stop learning!

I have had the privilege to have danced & learnt from many great dancers from all over the world offering different styles of dance including Turkish, Indian, Egyptian, African, Tribal & Gypsy Caravan, and Cabaret.

I am happy to share my passion of Bellydance with my fellow dancers.
JOIN US AND GIVE IT A TRY ā€“ YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!
