Frequently asked questions about Belly Dancing Classes

How Did Belly Dancing Start?

Belly dancing has origins in the Middle East and is often used to describe a wide variety of Middle Eastern dances. However, the first known belly dancers are thought to be from Egypt in the 1830s. The women who danced were considered gypsies and would travel around the country performing shows. Over time, the dance was developed and is now enjoyed as part of a fun dance class in many Western countries!

How to Belly Dance?

Belly dancing is a fairly simple dance that involves rolling and twirling your hips. It’s simple in the sense that it’s all focused on your core, rather than any intricate leg movements. However, that’s not to say it’s a walk in the park! You’ll be shimmying and wiggling your hips in time to music, so it’s as much about coordination as it is about looking good!

Does Belly Dancing Burn Calories?

If you want to get your hips moving and burn some calories, belly dancing is a fantastic exercise that’s not only great for your core, but it’ll help you let your hair down. Trust us, you’ll feel your inhibitions sliding out the door in no time. You can burn around 300 calories in an hour!

What to Wear To A Belly Dance Class?

Traditional belly dancers often wear pretty beaded bra tops that put their bellies on show and dazzle their audience in the process. However, during your belly dance class, you don’t have to go quite as extravagant. Some comfy, lose fitting gym clothes will do just fine. Although, if you want to dress up, feel free to go ahead!

What Events is a Belly Dancing Experience Good For?

A belly dance class is good for all sorts of occasions. Perhaps you want to learn a new skill with friends, or you want to do something a little different for your birthday party? And, because it makes for a sensual dance, it’s not uncommon to have a hen party dance class that’ll see you swinging your hips before a big night out on the town!

Whatever your size and shape, let go of your inhibitions and celebrate the female form as you embrace every staccato movement and have a blast doing it!

This is such a fun way to learn a new skill and have a giggle with the girls, making it the perfect activity for a birthday, hen party, corporate event or just a great day out.

The dance instructor will teach each move slowly, making this class suitable for all abilities. You don’t have to have previous dance experience or have tried belly dancing before, just come willing to give it a go. The focus of these sessions, whether in the UK or Europe, is always on fun so you can shake that thang in the company of your best girls in a judgement free, private space. These fab moves will then be incorporated into a dazzling choreographed routine that your group will perform at the end.

You’ll leave this lively session feeling like a total goddess! You might even learn some moves you can bust on the dancefloor later! All our Belly Dancing activities take place in city centre venues, so you’ll be close to all the action, bars and restaurants when you finish. Unsurprisingly, this has proven a hugely popular hen party, especially on a Riga hen do.
