FEEL THE FLOW: From Breath to Belly, From Body to Soul.

This is a NEW 'Creatress Bellydance Class' takes us gently into 2021... So, you can start your Bellydance journey NOW : )  ... with the presence of breath, core awareness and creative mooves & grooves in our NEW "Bellyflow" class. Sow gentle new seeds to grow luscious plants of purpose & bloom flowers of dance in to your future. 

We start on our Earthy yoga mats & come down to the ground & into our sitting bones & body. Then with core breathing, pelvic floor exercises & some simple stretches we shall relax our hearts & mind to come gently into "The Now".  Soon & sweetly we rise to our feet to choose a silky hip scarve which swings to the music.  Here with simple structured guidance I shall introduced you to both the "Masculine & Feminine Tribes" & "The 8 Faimilies of Movement."  You will enjoy learning a small repertoire of gentle "mooves & grooves" that will help you to "Let Go & Let Flow!"   Each week you will find you have more flexibility & have built up more strength to "trip the light fantastic" with a natural confidence to the most beautiful traditional & contemporary music. We finish the class with a "free dance" in candlelight so your imagination can fly & you may become a "Creatress" of gentle strength through the beauty of Bellydance.

Try this healing, fun-damental & unique class which comes so naturally to all women of all ages, body types & cultures! Experience the flow of this ancient feminine dance, whilst learning about your own PRESENCE of BREATH, PELVIC FLOOR, CORE, BODY, MIND, HEART & SOUL. This style of dancing slowly heals many everyday challenges...  which is why Bellydance was "Created by Women for Women!"

BEYOND THE BASICS: Enhance your Dance!   

Go deeper into the beauty & skill of "The Dance" by going further into the flow, the drills & the dancing! Learn more intricate moves, more subtle techniques & developed more presence of personal power in your dancing.  
By trusting the skills you've already learnt you can now embody other moves & grooves that will satisfy your dance soul! Get more out of the class by naturally integrating the 'Masculine & Feminine Tribes', the '7 Families of Movement', 'Travel Steps' & 'Dance Props' of veils, zills, jugs & fans that you were introduced to in your 'Creatress Belly Basics' Class ... Dance them all together with new subtle nuances & enjoy the beautiful & traditional Middle Eastern music or the more contemporary tunes. 
Suzi also teaches you the art of listening with your "heart ear", the sensory perception of musicality, emotional awareness & some sacred geometry of the group, which makes the dance so wonderful! You can feel the effects on the Earth & under the Sky, on the dance floor, on the "Magic Carpet" or up on stage! You really will feel more confident, free, sensual, connected & ALIVE! 

So, embody the deep moves of the "Tribes", some of the history, the traditional culture, it's knowledge & its origins. This class is focused on growing your personal dance technique, skills, prop abilities, instrumentality & professionalism concerning Bellydance. Challenge yourself by learning some of Suzi's own choreographed dances created for past performances. Get good at using props like veils, fan, jugs, drums, zills (finger Symbols) & even fire to "Enhance your Dance!"  You will discover your own natural abilities, express your strengths & grow natural courage both on & off the dance floor!
