Belly Dance Society

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

We run 2 weekly classes - one for beginners and one for advanced level. We teach various styles of belly dance, including traditional oriental and tribal, and is great for those who wish to refine technique, learn new moves or to just have fun dancing away on a Friday night! We also run workshops for a variety of different styles from burlesque belly dance to hip hop fusion belly dance! This society also participates in competitions and performances as well as going on some great socials! And rest assured we wear the most fabulous costumes around!! Classes are just £3 for members, £5 if you do both classes.

For non-members classes are just £4 and £6 if you do both classes. (Membership for the year is only £10, or membership for half of the year is £5!).
