Belly Dance

Oriental Dance (Raqs Sharqi, in Arabic) is commonly called ”Belly Dance”, and is one of the oldest dance forms known. Its origins are from folk dances from the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa, and Egypt. Oriental Dance for the stage, the cabaret dance, was developed in the twenties in Cairo, and it contains elements from other dance forms like the ballet and jazz.

Oriental dance is not just a dance art for the stage, but also a cultural and social dance. At last but not least it is good exercise, and gives room for exploring corporal conscience, rythm, and musicality. Belly Dance fits all body types and all ages. The movements are gentle, and it strengthens the core musculature and gives you a better body posture. This class is for beginners.
