Starting January 2012 I’ll be hosting the first Belly Dance Google Hangouts which will take the form of an online practice session streaming straight into your home, wherever you are in the world! All you’ll need is a Google+ account and a decent internet connection.
If you’re block booked on any Bellydancing Barbie Class you’ll automatically be invited to join in!
I’ll fill you in with more details very soon but thought I’d share some of the 2012 excitement with you all now.
It’s gonna be a great year!

And another wonderful workshop.. DONE!
For me each bellydance experience is different, each workshop is different and, as such, you never know the energy on the day until it arrives. You can’t plan energy it’s a living thing, all you can do is imagine and for me that’s where the experience starts, with my imagination, my very vivid imagination..
My aim with these taster workshops, as ever, was to achieve a balance of informative teaching with vibrant and enthused delivery. A sample “taster” of BellyBasics™ and ChoreoImpro™ satisfying in itself. Is it fair to say I nailed it?!
It was incredible to dance with such enthusiastic ladies!! Our energy mirrored and towards the finale the vibe was almost euphoric. Charged with energy. It’s a delight to share these experiences with you all.
..”Sorry Corrie your bums out the windae, Desperate Housewives we ain’t, these are the experiences that connect us, that make women feel truly alive”!!
As mentioned I have various workshops bouncing around inside, just dying to burst out so if, unfortunately, you were one of the ladies who missed the boat this time fear not little lady, keep checking back and get in quick as there’s a few more where those ones came from!
Looking forward to dancing with you soon!

Well, well, well – what a fabulous time we had this afternoon?!!
What we did: We had a little discussion about Bellydance, what it is, different styles and variations, the essence of the dance I guess. We watched a short demo in Egyptian Cabaret style. Warm up moves, practised “basic stance”, and spoke about the importance of “engaging core” We then had a shot at loads of different “basic moves”. We recognised having a “dominant side” and specific moves we feel we could excel at. We then went on to “Veilwork” where we tried a few basic and a few more advanced moves. (We also discovered the mechanics of sash and case windows and had a giggle at some of my silly analogies)
I like the fact that we worked quite hard in a fitness sense. I love the fact that this was a very informal and sociable class. We covered a lot in that 2hrs. A very diverse group of people, everyone had something really special to add to the session.
I’ll put that handout on here for you all and I’ll also give a copy for each of you to Aditi Centre reception so you can pop in and pick one up if you wish. A couple of you were interested in the music I was using, details of how you can get a copy will be posted on the site shortly. Others were interested in future Workshops/classes, please check back at the site regularly and if one comes up that you fancy I suggest booking your place early as these fill up really fast! Please email me or post comments here.
I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop - I only wish we’d had more time!
