Classes

 

 I currently teach 3 classes a week.  The classes are held at Webheath Village Hall, Heathfield Road, and Bridley Moor and Batchley Social Club, both in Redditch and are open to all levels of dancer, so are suitable for beginners.  I incorporate a safe warm up and cool down into each dance class, and part of the lesson is taken up by learning a choreographed dance that we add onto each week.  There is a chance several times a year to perform the dances learnt in class at a belly dance party called a 'hafla' but there is never any pressure to perform.  If you are not keen on the idea then please just view it as a chance to learn a new dance!

 

I hold a foundation level JWAAD teacher certification, and also have public liability insurance should any accidents/injuries occur in class.  I also hold a valid first aid certification and regularly update this (although fingers crossed have never needed to put it into practise!)

 

I am also a trained Pulse8 teacher which is a program of dance classes based around belly dance but which incorporate yoga, folkloric style and energetic latin moves!

 

If you are interested in joining one of the classes below can I suggest you email or text/call me beforehand to check if there is availability in the class you're interested in.  I do limit spaces and classes can become very busy, particularly at certain times of the year such as January when everyone is looking to get fit!

 

My classes are informal and fun, and both have a great group of ladies of all ages.  Sometimes I teach short combinations, other times we work on technique or new moves, and sometimes we do fun group work to get everyone mingling and socialising.

 

There is no set rule on what you should wear - you need to be comfortable and able to move easily!  Most ladies wear leggings/stretchy trousers, or long floaty skirts, and a t-shirt.  Dancers either choose to go barefoot, or wear soft, flexible dance pumps.  I don't allow trainers, heeled shoes or just socks to be worn in class due to the risk of injury.  As many of my dancers have been coming for years, most have several hip scarves which is a scarf you tie around your hips with jangly coins on for when you shimmy!  I have some to lend out to new dancers and also have some for sale should you wish to buy one.

 

Classes are as follows:

 

Sunday 10.30 - 11.30am  @ Webheath Village Hall, Heathfield Rd , Redditch

 

 

Monday 6 - 7pm @ Bridley Moor & Batchley Social Club, Bridley Moor Rd, Redditch

Monday 7 - 7.30pm Performers class 

 

There are 2 options for payment: You can either choose to pay per 6 week block, or pay as you go.  A 6 week block booking is £27 (which equates to £4.50 a class) However, classes cannot be carried over if you don't attend during the 6 week block.  An exception will be made with regards to holidays & illness but only a maximum of 1 week per 6 week block will be carried over, at my discretion.  Alternatively it is £5.50 if you choose to pay as you go.

 

There is a discount if you attend both my Sunday & Monday classes in the same week - please enquire for prices.

 

 

* Performers class: we learn and practise choreographies with a view to performing at local events as & when throughout the year.  This will mean attending regularly to ensure we can work on formations etc.

 

* I also offer private one to one tuition in my mirrored dance room - if this is something you are interested in, please message me to discuss availability.  Currently private lessons are priced at £12/45 mins, or you can book & pay for 5 sessions together for £50 (equates to £10 per lesson) - to be used within a 6 month period.
