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 4 2017- From Thursday 19th October
This term’s dramatic but graceful choreography builds on the rhythmic percussion and melodic accents of Black Violin’s Gypsy. With swirling skirts and dramatic combinations, this fusion dance balances rhythmic and fluid moves evoking the spirit of nights spent dancing around the campfire.
MKHTARAT WAHAB 8pm
Inspired by the elegance and sophistication of the golden age of belly dance, this term’s choreography pays tribute to the dancers of the era, famous for fusing baladi and modern theatrical dance to create the style that defined belly dance for decades. Gliding from smooth drama to flirty accents, this dance never loses sight of the refined glamour and passion embodied by the iconic dancers of the golden age.
Term 3 2017- From Thursday 27th July
8-9pm WHATEVER LOLA WANTS (LOLA GETS)
This slinky theatrical fusion choreography is a nod to the heyday of cabaret with a modern twist. Embellishing oriental dance moves with a touch of tango styling gives this term’s choreography a cheeky, seductive flavour while providing grounding in the fundamentals of belly dance. Natacha Atlas’s sassy ‘Whatever Lola Wants (Lola gets)’ sets the mood to encourage intermediate dancers to add some playful nuances to their repertoire while still being a choreography that is suitable for less experienced dancers.

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.
