BELLYDANCE

Bellydance is a dance form which comes from the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.

Bellydance makes use of the space inside your body to catch and express the beautiful rhythms and melodies of music from Middle Eastern, North African and Turkish (MENAT) regions. There are so many contexts that bellydance can be enjoyed and so many ways that it can be done – that’s what makes it magic! Researched benefits of the dance include

  • Experiencing pleasure and fun!
  • Improved somatic and self-awareness
  • Improved posture
  • Improved balance
  • Improved co-ordination
  • Empowerment through increased confidence
  • Positive body image regardless of age/weight /shape
  • Being part of supportive communities

Another important benefit is the opportunity to develop cultural, historical and political awareness. The world of ‘bellydance’ is multi-layered and rich in history and complexity and can help to expand ideas around gender experiences.
