Belly Dance Amethyst Bridgewater with Karinishka
For a fun way to get fit – and learn this beautiful dance form in the process – join us at Bridgewater Hall on Thursday nights.
Classes are suitable for all ages and open to people with all levels of dance experience from absolute beginner to dancers with previous experience in belly dance or other forms of dance.
Class descriptions give an indication of whether the classes are focused on basic moves (foundation) or assume a basic level of belly dance knowledge (open), but all classes are open to all dancers and many students come to both.
Term 2 2018- From Thursday 3rd May
This fusion choreography is a nod to the jazz age with a tribal twist. Embellishing tribal moves and combinations with vaudevillian nuances gives this term’s choreography a vintage 20s flavour. This dance gives intermediate dancers a chance to add some playful touches to their repertoire while still being a choreography that is suitable for less experienced dancers.
Term 1 2018- From Thursday 1st February 2018
SULTANA & TABLA SOLO #4 7pm
This term’s choreography explores contrasts: fast and slow, sharp and smooth, evocative and dynamic, blending classic Oriental moves and combinations into dynamic choreography to Sultana by Harem. This dramatic piece balances a percussive, high energy start with slower, more introspective passages adding emotional depth and balance to the choreography.

What to wear
Wear something comfortable and easy to move in, such as leggings, yoga pants or a full skirt.
A hip scarf is recommended but if you don’t have one, a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips is a good idea. I have a few coin scarves for new students to borrow when they start and also have hip scarves for sale at the classes.
