• No class on 17th May

    There's no class on 17th May - but back to normal from 24th May.

    We're busy rehearsing for a couple of performances over the next few months - an Eid party in June, our annual Summer Sizzler Hafla on 1st July, and a return to Wythenshawe Games at the end of July, where we will be holding bellydance taster sessions as well as performing for the crowds, promoting the health and wellbeing benefits of bellydancing - but more on that nearer the time.

    Until then, feel free to join us on Thursday nights at the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre, to put some jiggle and wiggle back into your life!!



  • It's not all about shaking your belly!!

    People are often put off by the idea of bellydancing, thinking that you have to expose your stomach area, but you don't have to if you don't want to!

    It is thought the term 'bellydancing' comes from the fact that most of the moves are driven from your central core of muscles, most noticably in the stomach area (same as your 'six pack'). However, we use LOTS of other muscles too!!

    We can choose for the moves to be high- or low-energy to suit all abilities, and we use props to enhance the moves and give us an element of fun in the dance too.

    So why not have a look at some of the routines we have been practising in class - and imagine yourself joining us next week at the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre! You would be very welcome :)

  • Fabulous Gala Evening booked for next Spring!

    I am so pleased to announce details of my first Gala Evening - on 3rd March 2018! This is not an ordinary hafla, but an evening to come and relax, eat delicious food, and watch some amazing dancers from London and the North West perform dances from across the Arab regions.

    We will have Egyptian, Tunisian, Iraqi, Arab-flamenco fusion, tribal style and live drumming in a whirl of sparkles and colour!

    It's all in aid of raising funds for Windmill Fundraising Campaign (https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/windmillfundraising) which in turn is sharing donations between the Neurosurgery Department at Salford Royal Hospital and the Breast Care Specialists at the Christie Hospital

    So save the date and look forward to a great evening helping us raise funds for such good causes xx



  • A Busy Summer

    Wow! We've been very busy recently. Not only performing and teaching 5 times during the Wythenshawe Games, but also at the Lifestyle Centre open day two weeks later.

    Then just last weekend we had the wonderful Summer Sizzler Hafla, where amateur dancers from across the North of England came to perform to a warm and welcoming crowd, meet friends, eat, chat and have a dance.

    We have been working on a new troupe costume, and learning some new routines for class and maybe to perform later.

    So we're all ready for September, welcoming new dancers into class, and cheering up those darkening evenings

    See you in class xx
