ShimmyHipz – Bellydance with a Difference

ShimmyHipz owner Debra Arnott teaches Beginners to Advanced level classes in and around Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK

Shimmyhipz Huddersfield UKBellydance (or to give it it’s correct name, Raqs Sharqui) is a traditional Middle Eastern dance dating back thousands of years.   In Arabic culture, the dance is shared from mother to daughter, with groups of women of all generations regularly dancing together.  

That’s because the dance was developed by and for women, to support the female body through childbirth 

The dance moves look and feel deeply instinctive to women of every age, and at every stage of life.  They specifically support feminine strength and fitness – and they are really good fun!

Debra writes:  “Bellydance feels great!  It’s a beautiful, graceful and powerful art form, and ShimmyHipz classes are tailored to suit every level of fitness and experience.  Learning the dance changes how women feel about their bodies, and really helps to develop our confidence.   It’s also really social and supportive; dancing with a group of like-minded women really benefits our self esteem, mental health, and sense of physical and emotional wellbeing.  You don’t even have to show your belly – unless you want to!”
