Belly dancing is beautiful form of dance which happens to be a great way to get fit maintain flexibility and improve your core muscles, while having fun! The society is open to everyone from complete newbies to those with some previous experience.

We run 3 weekly classes - one for beginners oriental, one for advanced oriental, and a squad class. We teach the traditional oriental style of belly dance, it is great for everyone who would like to refine technique and learn new moves or to just have fun dancing away on a Friday night, and rid those cloudy heads on Saturday afternoons! We also run workshops for a variety of different styles from burlesque belly dance to hip hop fusion belly dance! And also participating in competitions and performances and going on some great socials! And rest assured we wear the most fabulous costumes around!! Classes are just £3 for members (membership for the year is only £10!) Or membership for half of the year is £5.

Classes for non-members are £4. If you take both classes on Friday evening you get a discount of just £5 for both.
