End of year Celebration Class (students only event)

14th December, 2021

Students from all Ishtar Dance classes are invited to join the End of Year Celebration Class which this year once again will have to take place via Zoom to keep it as Covid safe as possible.

True to tradition we’ll learn a fun routine to a seasonal song before students are invited to dance their latest routines for one another and I will of course also do a twirl or two.

All dancers are invited to guess the ‘Name that Song’ and of course to wear their best Festive Dress as long as it’s suitable for dancing. Whether a Turkey costume, a bit of Christmas tinsel or a full on light up costume – the choice is yours.

All this for only £10





Belly Dance Basics, Beginner/Improver Level

In this 6 week online course you will learn all the basics of belly dance and great emphasis is put on posture, transitions and technique as well as lots of fun dance combinations. This is a pre-recorded course, which means you can access the video tutorials at any time and watch them as many times as you like within the 6 weeks of the course. Private lessons to ensure your learning stays on track are available  depending on demand and availability, and start at £15 for a 30 minutes. Please note, this is a reduced price rate only available when booked as part of this course.

How it works: Each week you’ll get two 30-40 minute videos that can be done back to back as a one hour long lesson or broken up as two classes to spread out your practise. The great thing about my online classes is that you can access the videos at any time and you have full flexibility to study when it suits you.

Price: £46 for 12 video tutorials.
