Belly Dancing

Category: Arts & Entertainment

ICU Belly Dancing Society is a fun and active club, whose primary aim is to teach the beautiful art of belly dance. This traditional Middle Eastern dance form involves learning how to move parts of the body, in particular the hips and chest, independently in an elegant dance. Belly dance is a great way to work out the entire body, boost your self confidence and meet new friends! Alongside classes we also organise plenty of socials including our xmas dinner, and outings to belly dance shows around London.

We run classes every week accommodating complete beginners to those who have been belly dancing for years. So don't worry if you've never belly danced or even danced before, our beginners classes are for you! Our classes are taught by professionals, so you know that you're in safe hands. :)
