What is Belly Dancing?
Belly dancing (to give it its western name) is claimed by some experts to be the oldest form of dance, with roots in many ancient cultures from the Far East to the Middle East. Unlike the misconception that it is a seductive dance for men to enjoy, the dance has usually been performed for other women, generally during fertility rites or parties preparing a young woman for marriage. So what better way to celebrate at a hen party than to learn this ancient dance?
What will I be doing?
We arrange for specialist teachers to come along to your group and teach you the basic moves for this wonderful dance with a workshop session. During the session they will show you some demo dances for you to see how to put all your moves together then it’s time for you to wiggle your hips like Shakira!
At the end of the session your teacher will bring out some headdresses and veils to dress up the bride and her bridesmaids for some great photo opportunities!
Depends on your group size but usually from £25 per person
