There is something for everyone! You don’t need to have any dance experience just a willingness to give it a go.

Tracey Jones, Dance Teacher said, “Belly dance is s a dance of the torso and pelvis, and therefore expressive of our central selves, this makes it fun on quite a personal level. All the moves are accessible to everyone, and can be done seated or standing, I welcome all levels of mobility to the classes I teach. Hip scarves can be borrowed on the day”.
