Class Levels

The beginners course is suitable for everybody – the classes are designed to be accessible for all ages, body types and fitness levels, and you don’t need any previous dance experience. This Spring we’ll be practising some beautiful basic moves, whilst exploring a selection of Egyptian songs.

In our improvers course this Spring we’ll be exploring Egyptian baladi style – including music, technique, and tools for improvisation. This level is suitable for dancers who’ve been studying Egyptian dance for a year or more, and are comfortable with a good range of basic movements and steps.

Monthly Workshops

These fun and upbeat technique workshops, held on the fourth Saturday of each month from 2-3:30pm UK time, are suitable for improvers (1+ years experience) and above, with optional challenges to keep more experienced dancers on their toes!

Each month we’ll look at a different area of technique in detail, and each workshop includes:

  • Warmup and drills
  • Technique tune-up
  • Combinations to practise your new skills
  • Relaxing stretches
