The next block of classes on Wednesday evenings at Elliot Clarke in Liverpool City Centre, Saturday mornings at The Parade Community Centre in Hoylake & Monday evenings in Wirral starts in January 2017. 
Classes run in blocks of 6 several times per year and should be booked in advance. The first session of each block will be an introduction class and an opportunity to try a taster before signing up. A variety of Belly dancing styles and dance techniques are taught at classes along with props, Culture, History and there is usually lots of laughs to be had. Props and coin hip belts are provided for all to use wear and return at no extra cost. Belly dancing can be a great form of low impact cardiovascular exersise with many health and fitness benefits. If practiced hourly you will burn 263 calorie per hour but it is important to do this at least several times per week however ultimately my groups are solely for ladies who wish to learn the art of the dance as a hobby at a leisurely pace. 
The group is held in a relaxed and welcoming non-competitive Community setting where positivity is highly promoted and friendships are made. Each class is different and there are fun and easy goals to work towards as well as opportunities for those who wish to learn more at Workshops and gain performance opportunities in privates group settings and sometimes for fun within local communities (performance is optional). At certains times of the year there may be a group hafla(belly dance group party) or a artistic\cultural trip at the end of a class block. My groups are female based Women from different backgrounds are welcome.
