Majickal Bellydance

Majickal Bellydance Classes November 2020

6:30pm Wednesdays, 11th November - 16th December 2020 
(6-week term)

Majickal Bellydance is back at CIRE Chirnside Community Hub Studio for term four classes.

Whether you are new to belly dance or have attended classes before, Majickal Bellydance can help you become more mindful of your movements, your energies and your ability to improvise to music from a place of individuality and creativity. 

You will learn the basic movements of belly dance, as well as the empowerment to discover more for yourself at home. I believe the circles, shakes and undulations of belly dance are innate movements that need only be remembered, once we believe we can dance. 

Majickal Bellydance can help you to:
  • Strengthen your core
  • Improve strength and balance
  • Grow in confidence and grace
  • Develop tone and shake out toxins
  • Improve mobility
  • Learn to dance like no-one is watching, even if they are!

Only $90

Please book asap as restrictions to class numbers apply due to COVID.

Bare feet or ballet flats are ok for belly dance. You need to be able to flex and roll your feet as well as feel the floor beneath you. Please bring a covered water bottle and a scarf to tie around your hips. A sarong works well if you don't have a scarf. If you have a belly dance coin belt then bring it along and make some noise. Dress in exercise gear or your favourite belly dance costume. 

See you in class X.



A Message from Your Teacher:


I cooked up Majickal Bellydance based on a stock of Classical Egyptian Bellydance, seasoned with aspects of fusion and spiritual dance, heated with electronic fusion beats. 

When you learn Majickal Bellydance you'll enjoy a whole body experience that mobilises every joint, every muscle, every dimension of the dancer you are. 

Not only will you learn the basics of bellydance, you will also explore how to connect to a state of mindfulness via dance. Belly dance is an energy dance, which conveys the physical as well as the energetic impact of form and music. Most dancers leave my classes feeling invigorated!

The emphasis for this class will be on health, fitness and mindfulness. Dress with comfort more than glamour in mind. A floaty skirt or exercise clothes with a hip scarf are fine for dance class. But do dress in costume if it helps you get in the mood for belly dance.

I will provide any props required. Just bring a water bottle and hip-scarf. You can use a jangly bellydance scarf with coins, or you can use a plain triangle or rectangular scarf. Even a sarong can help you feel 'dancer-like,' as long as it doesn't obstruct your movements.

We will be performing some light stretching and mobility exercises, so make sure you can comfortably move around. Bare feet are traditional for bellydance, but I understand that some people have podiatry needs and require footwear. In that case a pair of ballet-styled flats are ok. But you do need to be able to spin and grip - like feet. Actual ballet-slippers are too narrow-soled for belly dance. We need to connect with the Earth via our feet, exploring gravity, rolling and shifting our weight as we dance. 

I look forward to dancing with you in 2020.
