“I have been dancing with Wafaa for about 15 years. Belly dancing has given me a group of friends that are so supportive and kind and given me confidence in my body I would never have had.

Our group has ladies of all ages, sizes and shapes. Belly dancing helped my posture, balance and flexibility.”

“Wow, What can I say? Wafaa is amazing. She came to my daughter’s hen party to cook for us her amazing food. While the food was cooking she gave all the girls a belly dance class. She dressed my daughter up before bringing her down to the rest of the hens where we showered her in rose petals. It was a totally amazing evening. The food was delicious and Wafaa is a lovely lady.”

Belly dancing

Belly Dancing dates back over 2000 years.  In Arabic countries, the name of this dance is “Raks Charqui” which translates to “Oriental Dance”. It’s an ancient form of dance created by women to entertain women and to help with menstrual pain and strengthen the muscles before and after giving birth.  In fact, belly dancing has a wide range of health and wellbeing benefits and it is a dance that suits women of all ages, shapes and sizes.
