Want to know why learning veils can be a belly dancer’s secret weapon?
Veils don’t just teach you how to be graceful – they need you to be graceful. When you dance with veils, the movements of your arms become amplified, so shaping and general posture become more important.
Veils can teach you how to add grace, poise and elegance to your dancing – and they’ll give you instant feedback when you arms are in the right (or wrong!) place.
Learn poses, postures, flourishes and turns with your new dance partner – your veil! See the results of your hard work when your veil dances, flutters, skips and flows through the air as if by magic.
And you can take that magic to the stage with the option to perform at our end of term Belly Dance Showcase – let your veil fly and your grace shine through!
Note: Semi-circle chiffon/cotton/organza veils are provided for use during classes, but are not available to take home or use in the Showcase. We advise that you invest in a veil for your home practice and/or if you’d like to perform at the show.
