If you've ever thought about learning to belly dance, then get started in one of Loreley's classes in Abingdon, Oxford or Wantage in Oxfordshire!

Next term starts 11 September 2023. See the class timetable page for details (accessible from classes).

Loreley is a professional dancer and IDTA-qualified teacher with many years experience. She discovered Egyptian dance in the early 1980s when she was already a ballet student. Throughout her dance career, she has focused on Egyptian styles of belly dance, and prefers the term, Egyptian Dance, for this fabulously beautiful dance form which involves movements of the whole body. In recent years, she has also taken up Tribal Fusion belly dance, a modern style which first appeared on America's West Coast.

Since it means moving your body from head to toe, belly dance is a excellent form of exercise. It's also great fun to learn. It doesn't matter what age, shape, or weight you are, you can move your body to the vibrant rhythms of the music and feel and look fantastic!

Loreley teaches weekly classes at all levels from beginner to advanced. You can get started in one of her beginners classes held in Abingdon, Oxford, and Wantage. Her classes are fun, friendly, and provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment. Dance is one of the best forms of exercise there is. It's good for the mind as well as the body so click classes for details.
