Last week, ladies from the fun and fashionable Events By Sapphire came to review the beginner belly dance class, held Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 at Shakespeare Court (learn more about the class here), and we were thrilled to dance with them!
Here’s an excerpt from their review:
Ever thought of a way you could probably get a work out, loose some unwanted calories, learn the skill of an art, embrace some history, get more self confidence and awareness, and feel sensual all at the same time?? Well there is a way!… You don’t believe me? Then I will have you know that you can get all this in just a dance of belly-dancing .
The belly-dance is a timeless dance, it has been around for thousands of years, it is one of the oldest forms of dance , born out from the middle east. It commands a sense of sensuality and power, a calmness and confidence, a playfulness in order to pull it off. You either come with all that and sharpen them even further or you leave with that after attending a belly-dance session.
I must say it is a real work out, with alot of fun and energy and you walk out with an acquired skill of an art because that’s what belly-dancing is, an art. Movements have to be in a specific way, flowing in unison with the movements of your hands and legs, waist, head… In fact your whole body moves along in this dance, no wonder I call it an art. Once done perfectly it is a sight for sore eyes.
Thankfully you don’t have to pack your bags and travel all the way to the middle east to learn this amazing dance, all this can be found right here in Lusaka Zambia. Ain’t that great??!!
We think it’s pretty great too. When belly dance combines with any woman’s hips, magic happens! Here in Lusaka, it’s a special brand of high-fashion, metropolitan, and joyful dancing, combined with the earthiness of Zambian dance traditions. Join us for a class, you won’t regret it!
