Belly dance school ARUENA began work in 2008 and since then has held rehearsals every weekend and weekday, two appointments per week for every group, ie nine appointments per month. Monthly fee is 2000 dinars and the first appointment is free!
If you are unable to make it to all your appointments, you have the possibility to pay for half month, but in that case the fee is 1300 dinars.
For the members of the fairer sex of all ages and occupations - we are here to have fun, socialize, take a load off, tighten our muscles and of course learn the secrets of this divine dance. There are no special requirements for the lessons, we dance in socks and/or ballet shoes. Come wearing whatever feels most comfortable (tracksuits, tights, long skirts...) and a body-hugging t-shirt.
The lessons were intended for everyone, regardless of their age or dance experience. We begin from scratch and with thorough guidance for dance steps and lots of repetition to allow you to progress quickly and achieve an enviable level of dance skill. The hall has a ballet room floor and two rows of mirrors so it makes for a pleasant working area.
We nurture exclusively the traditional Egyptian style of oriental dancing. Basic steps are taught in the beginning which include learning to control individual muscle groups (hip, stomach, shoulders and chest) and then comes the basic movement around the set as well as move combining in order to create a beautiful whole! Later we teach individual dance style which are taught one after the other in order to enhance and perfect the dancing knowledge of the participant.
This helps every single participant build their own style of dancing.
Dancing styles our studio offers include:
- Classic Egyptian style (Raqs sharqi)
- Veil dancing
- Wing dancing
- Khali (Arabian seaside countries dance)
- Cane dancing (Saiidi)
- Accordion dancing (balady)
The last three dances are Arabian folklore dance styles. Our studio also offers organizing seminars or workshops. The theme for the workshops can be coreography or technique of one of the above listed styles.
