Belly-Bolly Dance with Liz Newman
Wednesday 19.45 - 20.45 Beginner/Improver
Wednesday 20.45 - 21.45 Intermediate level
Belly-Bolly dance is for all women, no matter what age, size, shape or ability! Liz will teach you the posture for the dance, based on pilates principles, which strengthens the back, hips and abdomen. Dancing barefoot is good for osteoporosis and it frees up the whole body. The dance moves help flexibility, coordination and balance, while giving deep muscle exercise. Learn the moves that your body was made for, together with transitions and variations, blending them all into whole dances.
Belly-Bolly dances come from a wide range of countries and cultures, ancient and modern, stretching from Andalusian Spain, across North Africa and the Middle East and on to the Indian styles of Bollywood and Bhangra, with all sorts of fusion thrown in. Sometimes we dance with veils, scarves, finger cymbals and sticks. No, you do not have to show a bare middle and a lot of flesh! It's fun to tie on a spangly hip-belt and shimmy, shake and snake around to fab rhythms with a group of supportive women. We laugh a lot as well as dance!
