About The Course
This is a dance focused course designed to encourage people from all walks of life to participate in dance. Over the twelve week period Tara will teach her format of belly dance technique along with an introduction to a popular belly dance prop. Then a choreographed dance routine will be taught with the prop. Artistic expression, Improvisation and creativity is expolored as part of the course so the student can build upon the choreography taught to add to it and change it to make it their own and are welcome to perform the choreography when it suits once the course is completed. Students are invited to attend an introduction taster class before signing up. Along with learning how to belly dance there are many

We end the course with a mini belly dance party / social get together. 
*Optional - there are performance opportunities for those who want to get involved.

The teaching concept and environment is based around community dance. The dance style and technique is that of oriental dance (belly dance) with a touch of theatrical flair.

Been To Other Classes?
 There is easily around twelve styles of belly dance and this number doesn't include the styles that branch off, The traditional styles of folk dance and it doesn't even cover the 22 counties of the middle East never mind the Medetaranean. As belly dance teacher's we are lucky enough to learn one to three styles and master at least one style. Therefore not everyone teaches the same style or technique and humble teachers consider ourselves life long learners. Unless your teacher is a thousand year old walking dance dictionary I doubt she's taught you every style in the book and every technique there is to know. Attending other classes is beneficial and you will learn more, Learn the difference in styles and which ones you like that suits you. Although there are definite similarities in each style there are also many differences.

Qualifications & Experience Bio
I hold dance fitness teaching and makeup artist / beauty therapy certificates / qualifications that are relevant to what I teach and the professional services I offer and provide. With almost six years of providing dance instruction at schools,  within charity community education  culture and arts organisations alongside running classes and facilitating workshops I have gained experience and am fully insured to teach belly dance from a community dance perspective. I have trained in and performed belly dance since 2004 and previously studied dance performing arts and theatre at college in 2000. I gained breif experience working with youth theatre and drama company. I was lead choreographer and song writer for a girl group I was in 1998. My work in beauty led me down the holistic path which was not for me. Eventually leading me into fashion through becoming a makeup artist where I crossed paths with people I previously worked with which led me back into dance.

The style taught is independent or a mix of Egyptian, Turkish and other forms of Middle Eastern, African , Americanised and Mediterranean belly, Folk & theatrical fusion dance. Belly dancing has so many styles also known as Orientale, Raqs Sharqi, Oryantal Dansi, Cabaret, Folkloric and theatrical fusion....just to name a few. *Please note this class is not Bollywood Zumba or any other style or theme 😁. It is strictly a belly dancing class which is amazing and fun enough all on its own.

Benefits -
Belly dancing is a fun uplifting style of exercise that has lots of health and fitness benefits. Unlike some forms of high impact dance exercise, Belly dancing is low impact meaning its easy on the body and joints. It incorporates resistance muscle strengthening, Flexibility stretches, Toning and sculpting movements and not to forget great cardiovascular exercise from travelling steps and a wide range of shimmies. Teamed together with my unique creative lesson planning you will never get bored learning how to belly dance at my class. Belly dancing is beneficial for women because you don't have to conform to a particular body shape. Its okay just to be you.
Social & Artistic Aspects-
Belly dancing is both a social form of dance and can be taken up as a hobby or as a serious artistic performance profession.

About Me - 
Celebrating Our Womenhood 

My mother was a dancer and Dad is a musician. I formly studied dance and performing arts in my teens. I have been performing belly dance since 2003. I am a working dancer and have been hired to dance in restaurants all over Merseyside as well as attending events and parties all over the UK and some abroad. I have performed at The World museum among other places of education & culture. The classes have been printed in the media, Featured on TV & Radio. I started my own class teaching in 2012 and it all happened as if by magic when friends, family & the public offered me opportunities to teach because they like my style and methods. Five years later and the classes continue to grow in popularity creating lots of opportunities for both myself and my class attendees. Throughout I have trained with top teachers from UK, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Spain, America, Brazil & Italy and I still continue to learn more so my classes don't become stagnant or boring. Being fairly a new and younger teacher I bring a fresh approach and a new pair of eyes adding my own flair and I hope to train existing and​ new students who wish to take dancing to a serious level to become professional dancers and teachers to (watch this space!) I continue to run my classes for ladies of all ages & dance abilities giving everyone a chance to get involved & benefit from both the health and fitness aspects as well as the social aspects. My focus is to share the gift of dance with others from all walks of life. 💙Love Light Dance Laugh Live 💙
