Seated Chair Belly Dance - Simple Hand Movement

Did you know that belly dance can be practiced by everybody? Even if you prefer a gentle style of dance or you have low mobility or a health condition that affects you belly dancing can be open to you. You just have to think outside of the box. As I have. So you may have heard of chair exercise, You may have heard of chair yoga but have you heard of chair belly dancing ? Well you may have an idea about what a chair dance is, often we think of chair dance like Burlesque or sexxy dance and there's nothing wrong with sexxy chair dance but seated belly dance the way that I teach it is artistic however when performing you be as sexxy or artistic as you like. However my chair belly dance lessons are focused on learning simple moves that are accessible for everyone. All you need is a chair and some optional cushions. If your back feels stable and you have good core strength and healthy posture you can sit on a stool or on the floor in a cross legged posture. If you have a wheel chair this dance is beneficial for you. Remember when practicing to follow the advice and take responsibility for your own wellbeing, go at your own pace and stop if you need to. Enjoy. 

Over the next few sessions I will be adding more lessons like this. Seated Belly Dance With Tara

Lesson one - Simple Arms Movement

Best Belly Dance Books

 Best Belly Dance Books 



Reading is a great resource for learning. Wether you are a belly dance student and want to learn more about dance and it's history, if you are a belly dancing teacher and want advice on running classes or creating choreography or if you are a performer of any experience and want to learn more about performance. By investing in belly dancing books you can learn so much to help you on your personal path.

Despite being dyslexic (discalcula) I am a big reader and there's nothing I like more than settling in with a hot drink and a good book.  So I invested in some dance books early on in my professional belly dance career. Although I like to read the main reason for buying lots of belly dancing books was to learn more after realising I had to go back on myself. What I had been taught previously over seven years was follow the bum moves without any technique or accurate information on styles of dance cultural or history. Things I realized where important to learn as a professional dancer and teacher. Investing in books was a great addition to private lessons advanced dancer courses and workshops with quality teachers that I travelled a long way to attend. I learned from great humble teachers who also advised me well. I caught up and was on the right path. Every cloud had a silver lining and although my early dance experience wasn't the best quality I have learned so much more since then but that was a long time ago. I learned to be a better teacher also and ensure I incorporate correct information into all of my classes so my students have a base to start from along with encouraging to go to other classes and teachers in the belly dance community.

So less about me babbling on here are my favourite belly dance books with links to where you can but them. Enjoy.


1 - The Belly Dance Book 

The Oldest Dance edited by Taz Richards 

Buy it on Amazon 

This was the first informative belly dance book that I bought. It has lots of tips advice and thorough information for dancers written by trustworthy mainly American collaborators. With everything from dance history consuming tips to makeup and gig advice. I highly recommend this book.


2 -  The Belly Dance Hand Book 

A companion for the serious dancer 

By Princess Farhana 

Buy it on Amazon 

Check out Princess Farhanas Blog

This book is perfect for anyone wanting to perform professionally it covers everything. It helped me to prepare for gigs perfectly. Written by an accomplished professional successful belly dancer with years of experience. Who wouldn't want to get advice from someone who knows what they are doing.


3 - The JWAAD BOOK OF BELLY DANCE

By Josephine Wise 

Buy it from JWAAD website 

Josephine Wise Website

This book is great for teachers starting out or even teachers who have been teaching for some time but want to refresh what is already known. It covers everything about teaching belly dance from written and illustrated staple moves of belly dance along with lots of information on dance history  and stylization and so much more. This book has given me some great tips for my own belly dance classes.  JWAAD is an organisation that offers belly dance teacher courses in dance teaching so dancers can gain legitimate qualifications to teach belly dance safely. 



4- My Grandmother's Secrets - The Ancient Rituals and Healing Power of Belly Dancing

By Rosina-Fawzia Al-Rawi 

Translated by Monique Arab 

Buy it on Amazon 

This book is the first book I bought as a belly dance student. It is a collectors item for me and I really enjoyed reading about the authors childhood and the dance as a form of ritual and healing in the words of a Middle Eastern Woman and her perspective. Although I have read some critical comments about the book I liked it.



5- Belly Dancing For Fitness - The Sexy Art That Tones Your Abs, Bum and Thighs

By Rania Androniki Bossonis

Buy it on Amazon

This is what it says on the tin, belly dancing for fitness. It's not everyone's cup of tea but it is a good resource for people who are interested in the fitness side of the dance. Personally I found that marketing some of my Saturday classes as exercise based attracted more students to the dance and to avoid false advertising I implemented things into my dance classes that had more cardio benefits such as a Choo Choo shimmy choreography just to name one. This book has some great tips and is written by a dancer who is also a qualified personal trainer. I would recommend it to teachers who run dance classes.



6 - NADA & MOSAIC Belly Dance Magazines

I recommend both magazines for belly dancers whether students professional performers and teachers so you are able to keep up to date with what's going on in the belly dance community and to read interesting articles. MOSAIC offers insurance for teacher. Both available for membership online.

7- Teaching Belly Dance

By Sara Shrapnell 

Buy it on Amazon 

Go to Sara's Website

This is a great book for teachers, it covers everything about teaching belly dance including how to lesson plan, advertise, how to run courses and  teaching different sized groups as well as how to run student dance shows courses and haflas. I highly recommend this book to any teacher regardless of experience. There's always something new to learn.



8- Performance Mastery 

By Delia Lewis 

Buy it on Amazon

A great book for performers regardless of experience (students and professionals) The author shares tips advice and tricks on how to project energy out and how to have stage presence and charisma. It is also a good teaching resource.



9- Leyla Najmas Belly Dance Choreography

and Combos For The Perplexed Choreographer

Buy it on Amazon 

This book is best suited to advance dancers who want new idea for choreography. 



10- The Fundamental Movement Vocabulary Of Raqs Sharqi 

By Morocco (C. Varga Dinicu)

Buy it on Amazon

I was given this book by an Egyptian dance teacher and friend when I took it home I realised I had already bought it years before so I passed it on to a dance friend who also taught. It covers the beginning movements of Egyptian style dance that is the base of higher level Egyptian dance. Great for students who are heavy in Cabaret style but want to learn more about authentic belly dance. Also this book is a great teaching resource and is very much softer and low impact compared to many other styles.
