New Year Drills Featuring Fitness Pilates for Bellydancers

Join me for a 90 minute kick-start  session dedicated to strengthening and mobilizing your dance from the inside out!

I am passionate about the power of Pilates exercises in keeping us dancing better for longer. I’ve recently qualified as a Fitness Pilates instructor and I know from first hand experience how well-suited the exercises are for us dancers.

Expect a mix of bellydance technique drills, conditioning exercises, stretches and mobilization poses to get your bellydance year off to a flying start!

Mats are available to use at the venue (I’ll have my yummy essential oil mat spray for you to spritz it down with) or you’re welcome to bring your own.

All shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels welcome! All the exercises will have easy and advanced options, so you can take it at the pace that’s right for you.

An Original Vintage Style Choreograhy Workshop By Helen

 

Learn a strong and sensuous vintage-inspired choreography with Helen.

I’ll teach you a brand new, original routine based on all my favourite elements of the Golden Age of bellydance film stars. Plus I’ll be sprinkling in my own style too ✨

I’ve taken my bellydance vintage style workshops and performances to national and even international destinations. But it all begins at home in my local dance studio and I can’t wait to teach this new exciting choreo there.

Bellydance by Candle-Light Sold out

A beautiful, relaxing, peaceful class to round off your bellydance year. Join me for a special candle-lit* class which is all about YOU!

(*well, as close to real candles as possible!)

Escape the stress and hectic-ness of the build up to Christmas and enjoy a cosy, calming class with Helen 😊.  A great way to bring yourself down gently and kindly after the highs and excitement of the end of term show.

Bring a yoga mat or towel to sit and lie on and prepare to nourish your bellydance goddess from the inside 👸.

This class is the perfect antidote to all the dashing around we do in the run up to Christmas (preparing and buying stuff for other people). Let’s get some soft lighting, maybe even a little essential oil, and some calming bellydance movements and meditations going on just for you.

Date: Tuesday 11th December

Time: 7.30-8.30pm

Venue: Kendrick School Sports Centre, Dance Studio, East St., Reading, RG1 5BN (click here for map) The entrance to the Sports Centre is in East St (not London Rd!). There is some parking on site though it does get quite busy)

Booking: £9 Sold out, sorry 🙁
