The ancient art of oriental dance has a long and colorful history. It began with the many fertility cults of the ancient world, and in the temples of ancient India. The existence of various nomadic groups specifically identified with Gypsies, provided for the cross-culturization and transmission of these dances. Although regional variations have always existed, the popularity of what is commonly known as "oriental dance" or "belly dance" continues in the modern Middle East and throughout the world. The survival of this ancient dance despite cultural and moral prejudices is a tribute to the appeal it has to the human spirit as the women (and men) who dance today do so for very practical reasons; because it is enjoyable, it is excellent exercise for muscle toning, and an opportunity for social involvement. In other words, for fun, fitness and friendship.

Hilary Thacker is a renowned professional Egyptian-style belly dancer performing and teaching throughout the UK and Middle East and in the privacy of your own home will instruct you on how to master basic moves involved in belly dancing including the camel and Egyptian walks, snaky arms and shimmies, and finishes with a section on dancing with the veil.

Everything a beginner will need to know to enjoy performing.
