Bellydance lessons are a great hit with Brownies and Guides, both of whom love the combination of fun and learning about another culture. We wear full costume and start by talking a little about the history of bellydance and its place in Middle Eastern culture. We then teach the girls some bellydance moves and finish with a dance to Shakira’s Hips Don't Lie.
Girls from eight upwards love bellydance parties and parents love being able to hand the partygoers over to us and relax! We start by performing a short dance in full costume and then go on to teach simple moves to Arabic pop music. We finish by teaching a simple dance to Shakira’s Hips Don't Lie.
Boys are welcome and don’t worry, there will be no inappropriate or
