Wear a scarf round your hips if you have one and bring water.
Feel the Golden Era flow of belly dance through powerful stage presence, story-telling eyes and expression with me Anna Arabella. Discover depth, feeling and character in your dance through the Vintage moves of the silent movie era and Cairo’s Mohamed Ali street artists of the 1950s. We will explore ease and grace to flow from one curvaceous move to another, and explore stillness and drama in the dance. Anna will be teaching long-forgotten techniques from a time that turns the modern approach to belly dance upside down!

Anna Arabella has performed and taught Belly Dance in Bristol and beyond since 2002. She loves to entertain and create her shows in a variety of styles; modern oriental, folkloric, Golden era, Baba Karam, Meleya, Shamadan, Isis wings, silks fans, Dabke, stick and more to suit her audience. She co-produces Online Zoom Hafla, connecting artists in Cario with the rest of the world in lockdown. This has provided much needed work for source artists left with no work or support during the pandemic and supports a community of belly dance fans around the world to feel the heartbeat of the dance direct from Cairo.
