Belly Dance Classes - Beginners

Belly Dance Classes - Beginners

Belly dance is one of the oldest forms of dance. Rooted in many ancient cultures it caters to everyone regardless of experience – which explains why it is such a popular dance worldwide.

The dance focuses on isolating different parts of the body and moving them independently in sensuous patterns and routines. This helps develop flexibility, strengthen abdominal muscles and build upper body strength. 

Belly Dance Classes for Beginners Content

Our Belly Dance Classes for Beginners are perfect for those with little or no experience. Exact course content may differ depending on course length and your needs, but topics covered will generally include:

  • Build core muscle strength
  • Improve and learn posture used for belly dance movements
  • Explore the foundation of belly dance movements, to include hip, chest and arm combinations
  • Learn to isolate muscles
  • Discover belly dance coordination, combinations and choreography with the use of individual movements and isolations
  • Learn to shimmy and improve this movement for the duration of the course
  • Increase the fluidity of arm movements

Like all of our belly dance classes, you'll receive friendly feedback throughout the course.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
