Arabian Nights Belly Dancing


Arabian dancing is an integral part of Middle Eastern culture, where it is traditionally performed at weddings, parties, and in restaurants. Arabian Dance It has been appreciated by both sexes and all ages for centuries.

Arabian dance technique depends on fine muscle control of the torso, arms and hips. The dancer uses their body to create a visual and emotional interpretation of the music. Though there are traditional steps and movements associated with Arabian Dance, how the dancer uses them comes from their soul. The dancer's spectrum ranges from vigorous and playful to subtle and sensual.

Arabian Nights Belly Dancing teaches and performs a variety of Arabian Dancing - Cabaret, Tribal, Gothique, Gypsy, Egyptian, Fusion. We use music from the Middle East and Western 'world' music. Our costuming and moves vary depending on the dance style.

In our classes, we welcome all - young and older, fit and the not so fit, small and large, shy and bold, experienced and inexperienced, female and male. We encourage our students to have fun while they learn and to follow their potential in this dance form.

For our performances we design family-friendly performances specific to the needs of our audience - fun and flirty, stately and serence, extravagant and energetic. Our professional performing troupe "Stars of the Arabian Nights" is available for private, corporate and public events. Beginner performers are welcome to tke part in our community and charity events alongside the "Stars".

"Apart from being great exercise and good fun, Belly Dancing provides a creative outlet, giving you the chance to mix fitness, flexibility and fantasy. To me, the beauty of Belly Dance is great because it allows women to express themselves in ways they are not always allowed to in society. To be great! To be deep! To be sexual, vital and meaningful. To manifest the designs of their hearts, to offer up beauty and have it truly received!" Leylah
