Classes / Schedule
Laura can teach you the beautiful art form of Belly Dancing with a variety of classes from absolute beginners up to her student troupe Sameerah.
There are many physical benefits that belly dance can bring including toning of the whole body, improved posture, boost to immune system, reduces stress and tension and weight loss, however belly dancing also helps to build your self esteem, connect with your femininity and make new friends.
The best thing about belly dancing is that it is a low impact exercise suitable for ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes and you DO NOT have to show your belly. Laura's students age between 16 years old and 70+.
Laura has been teaching for ten years and teaches Oriental Pop Belly Dance and Belly Dance Fusion( a mix of commercial dance and belly dance moves to chart hits!) As well as running workshops to cover other areas such as saidi, veil, swords, raks sharki and more...

“Before attending Laura's belly dance classes I hadn't danced at all, other than at parties and weddings! Laura's gentle encouragement and constructive advice has provided me with much more than a dance class, creating confidence both mentally and physically. The marvelous thing about Laura's classes is that a person can do as much as they feel and will not face criticism, just encouragement and praise, whether its your first lesson or your one hundred and first"
“I started attending Laura's belly dance class in 2011. From the very first class, I was hooked. It felt like an achievement every week to have learnt yet another fun choreography and also to have pushed myself fitness-wise. But Laura's lessons are more than just fun and fitness. They inspire self-confidence and a real sense of self-worth. The friendships I have made in class are very special and Thursdays are now the highlight of my week"
