Belly Dancing is such a fantastic way of toning all those troublesome areas – bums, tums, thighs and bingo wings! Combining both traditional and modern music, and in a relaxed, friendly environment, this class is never dull. Katy guides you through moves step-by-step, and gradually builds up choreography over a number of weeks. Belly dance ‘skirts’ are provided and Katy occasionally brings in her ‘dress-up box’ so that you can practice in full attire!
It is recommended for complete beginners to drop the studio a message before joining the class just in case they’re on their last week or two of a routine, that way everyone can start something new at the same time. However, beginners are more than welcome to join any week.
Belly dance has so many elements to it that everyone has things they’re good at and things they aren’t, so I wouldn’t worry. All the girls just laugh at themselves!
No, ultimately this is a fitness class so as long as you’re getting a workout and enjoying it you don’t have to get your stomach out. Tighter clothing is recommended but again whatever you feel comfortable wearing.
Bare feet is ideal, or socks (providing you’re careful not to slip!)
