Bellydance is an umbrella term for many Middle Eastern dance styles that include beautifully fluid undulations and clever isolations that look good on any body shape. It can be good for toning the arms and the waistline but its also great fun! It celebrates the feminine form and can promote good posture, confidence, flexibility and it's also a good way to socialise. This ancient art form can become addictive and there are many events in the area which are great for both the beginner and the improver.

Why learn with BellyTricks?
BellyTricks classes are very welcoming and friendly to newcomers and there is no pressure to perform if you don't feel comfortable. Baring your belly is not compulsory and men are also very welcome to join us.
I am taking lessons with Melissa, both belly dancing and tribal. Melissa is a really good teacher, she guides you all the way without ever making you feel bad about yourself if you do anything wrong, she does great choreographies and her lessons are a joy to attend. I can't recommend her enough as a teacher or as a performer in her tribal group, Nirzari."
