Classes

Bonita teaches regular classes in Albourne and Uckfield. She specialises in teaching Egyptian style belly dance and is highly educated in the structure, form, rhythm and choreography of Egyptian music. She also holds a certificate in Teaching Skills for Life and is a member of the Institute for Learning.

Teaching with a relaxed and fun approach, Bonita's classes are for anyone who has a love of dance and rhythm who would like to try something a bit different or improve on existing skills. Belly dance is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes. Previous experience of this or any other dance form is not required, but students should be generally fit and mobile.

As well as working to improve suppleness, posture, fitness and confidence, in Bonita's classes you will learn:

Beginners

Students will learn how to confidently carry out the basic movements, safe technique and rhythm of belly dance and how to incorporate learnt movements within a class routine.

Improvers Plus

Students will learn how to carry out the further movements, safe technique and rhythm of belly dance, continuing to incorporate learnt movements within a class routine.

Students will continue to broaden their knowledge of Egyptian music and rhythms, recognising the link between music and movement and beginning to interpret music through their dancing. Students will also continue to practise and refine movements already learnt.

Advanced Performers

Students will continue to broaden their knowledge of Egyptian music and rhythms, developing both movements and performance skills within class routines and their own choreographies. Students will also continue to practise and refine movements already learnt and develop their ability to accurately interpret the music through their dancing.

Bonita's classes are run on a 6 week course rotation. Please contact Bonita to confirm the dates and times of the next available course.
