«These sessions are great fun. There is a lovely atmosphere and I always leave feeling really re-energized, like I can take on the world!b I am naturally quite a shy person and had worried beforehand about feeling self-conscious but these fears quickly went at my taster session. No special clothes are needed just something that you feel comfortable in, although I'd recommend trousers (leggings or jogging/yoga bottoms). It's great for toning up & a natural confidence booster. Don't feel worried if you are going alone as I do and most of the other ladies seem to be. Also, there is a mix of ages, shapes & sizes so please don't let body image put you off. I really enjoy the well-earned 'me time' hour although my son doesn't appreciate me practicing in the kitchen!!! » netmums.com/merseyside/local/view/classes-for-you/dance/belly-dance-lesson.
The program teaches dance in a professional way that creates quick results in learning dance as well as improved fitness, flexibility, and confidence.
Styles taught include cabaret and folkloric forms from Egypt, Turkey, and the Gulf. Bollywood dance is also explored. Props taught include; Sword, veil, stick and zill’s (finger cymbals). Chances to dance with snakes for those who want to!
Classes are for beginners to advanced dance practitioners. The courses and lessons are suitable for women and girls aged from 10 upwards. All body types and nationalities welcome.
Classes often involve yoga and other Eastern movement/energy systems. Mixed with belly dance, this unique synergy can bring improvements in weight loss, beauty, posture, stamina, flexibility, and confidence.
Ishtar's classes have a policy of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance of difference. Bitchiness, exclusion, and discrimination are forbidden in Ishtar's classes. Ishtar practices an ethical approach to teaching dance that condemns spreading malicious gossip about other teachers. Very competitive behaviour is rejected, so please don't come if this does not sound like your type of environment. Established students share these core beliefs.
In belly dance classes you can be part of a community which studies show, improve health and well-being. It is general knowledge that physical movement is essential to health and happiness. Body acceptance is fostered by Belly dance, unlike other dance forms which can create negative body perceptions in those over a size 8. Slim girls, big girls and everyone in between can all look great belly dancing!
Opportunities for performance (for those who wish).
These classes provide a great opportunity to socialise and engage with supportive women of all ages, body types and nationalities. (Trans-women, as well as gay men and women, are very welcome).
