Enrolments are now open for Bacchus Marsh, Gisborne and Woodend.

Enrolments for the new class at Romsey Neighbourhood house open on the 15th January. Places are limited to 15 so give them a call on 5429 6724 to reserve your place. You can find them also on Facebook, their website is in progress. See previous post for more details.

What to wear: Comfortable stretchy clothes and dance shoes like Jazz ballet shoes, barefoot is also appropriate.  Sneakers tend to stick to the floor which makes it harder for some of the movements.  If you need to wear your orthotics, you can.

Bring a bottle of water, an exercise mat and a hip belt (beaded or coins) if you have one.

Beginners:

For beginners, I’m offering a 4-week sampler course $64.  It’s a chance for everyone to give Belly Dance a try without having to commit to a full 10-week course.  This ‘Sampler’ is a very affordable way to give it a go to see if you like it. For those of you who wish to continue at the end of the 4-week course, the ‘sampler course’ amount will be deducted from the term fee. You can be assured that you will be able to fit right into the class and be able to enjoy the following sessions with confidence. It’s the perfect way to try it out before committing to a full term.

What will we cover?

Each class starts with a 20 minute warm-up followed by 40 minutes of dance technique combinations and concludes with a 15 min cool-down.

As a beginner you will learn the following techniques:

  • Belly Dance Foundations
  • Travelling steps – all directions
  • Combination: mini routine of techniques learnt in first 2 weeks
  • Introduction to Veil

What to bring?

Please bring a yoga mat and water bottle. Dance shoes & hip belt if you have them (optional), you can wear bare feet. Please arrive five minutes before ready to start your session.

Enrol for Term 3 Now!

Enrolments are now open for Term 3 which runs from 17th July to 23rd September, 10 weeks for $160 or $20 casual. My classes run for an hour and a half to include a through 20-30 minute warm up and tone session, warm-up time depends on what techniques will be taught in the lesson. Following that a 45-55 minute session of technique, combos, drills or choreography along with a 15 min stretch cool down at the end of the class. See the classes page for easy payment options.

Term 3 brings with it a plethora of bad weather conditions like extreme cold and winds, rain, fog and sometimes snow. With this in mind I do not conduct night classes in Woodend in term 3 only.  This year I have also decided for 3rd term only to conduct day classes across the board as numbers decrease with the very cold and windy weather. I hope this may encourage more people to come out during the day and do some fun and empowering, body toning and fitness exercise that is suitable for all shapes, sizes and levels of fitness.  Even if you have limited movement I can modify it for you.  Read my article on the Bio page to see read how belly dance helped me recover from a serious car accident.

Much Love, Deb
