Tuesday Classes

Middle Eastern Dance

Modern belly dancing is based on the folk dances of the Middle East.  In these classes, we learn about Middle Eastern culture through dance.  All new dancers are welcome as no previous dance experience is needed, and we don't

bare our bellies!  As well as studying Middle Eastern culture, we will cover posture and how to dance safely, torso and arm movements, common steps and dance props, all in a supportive environment.  As with all dance forms, Middle Eastern dancing promotes creativity and self-expression, strength, confidence, and body awareness, all through the art of moving to music.


This eight-week course is $35 and bookings are through the Canterbury Workers Educational Association. Please check out our class and their other courses.

From Tuesday 15 October 2019, 10am to 11am, CWEA, 59 Gloucester Street, Central City, Christchurch

Beginners' Tribal Belly Dance

In this class, we introduce how to stand and dance safely, as well as learn simple strengthening exercises to help execute basic American Tribal Style-inspired belly dance movements. We will study the four fast families of the Tribal repertoire, and some simple slow moves, as well as common formations. All welcome!

5:30pm to 6:30pm Tuesdays, CWEA, 59 Gloucester Street, Central City, Christchurch

Intermediate Tribal Belly Dance

Moving on from Beginners' Tribal, we expand the four fast families of our American Tribal Style-inspired repertoire to include combinations and formations, such as fades, partner swaps, and more complicated chorus line variations. We will also add more advanced slow moves.

6:30pm to 7:30pm Tuesdays, CWEA, 59 Gloucester Street, Central City, Christchurch

Advanced Tribal Belly Dance

For the Advanced Tribal class we add props to our repertiore, including sword, tambourine, and shawl. This class also offers the freedom to experiment and move away from the more traditional movements of the American Tribal Style-inspired canon.
