CLASSES WITH A
the Middle East, Belly Dancing is still significant as a symbol of maternity.
Belly Dancing is sometimes called 'Birth Dance' and, in parts of the
Middle East and Russia, but mainly in North Africa, 'Birth Dance' is still
practised. The women of certain tribes gather around a woman in labour.
It is a tradition of childbirth as a shared experience that
continues today. The aim is to make the birth less painful by Belly
Dancing together, to encourage and stimulate labour. Sympathetic cries
are exchanged between the circle of encouraging dancers and the woman in
the slower rolling and undulating movements are beneficial to the blood supply
and muscle-tone in the abdominal area. The important pelvic floor muscles
together with the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, are strengthened with the
"Mirage Method" of Belly Dancing. My aim is to promote
Babies pre-natal courses and then to help
shape and muscle
after child-birth with my post-natal Belly Dancing classes.

Babies classes help women prepare for and enjoy the journey through pregnancy
and child-birth. They are suitable for any stage of pregnancy. Each course
lasts six weeks (locations vary depending upon demand). The classes are small,
to ensure personal attention, and of one hour duration. Fees start from £60
per course and are payable in advance. Booking is essential.
When there is no Belly Babies course available, Belly Babies techniques can be taught during my regular weekly classes - please enquire.
