Fanveils Belly Dance Sundays with Dionne: (5wks) Aug 2019

The Course Starts In


Can you keep your fanveil fluttering while your body’s on holiday?

To keep a fanveil fluttering requires plenty of strength and rapid movement in your hand, wrist and arm – while the rest of your body looks calm and serene! The key to successfully dancing with a fanveil is to refine your isolation techniques – and that’s exactly what this course teaches you. Discover how to isolate your fanveil’s movements, alongside new ways of dancing and turning with fluidity and grace.

Do you find turns a challenge? Don’t panic! This course helps you tackle your turning fears in a new and colourful way. When you turn with a prop, you really have to master the technique – and you’ll see instantly when you’ve got it right because your fanveil will happily follow wherever you guide it.

Note: Fanveils are provided for use during classes, but are not available to take home. We advise that you invest in a fanveil for your home practice.

Why 5 weeks?

Because summer time often means summer holidays, woohoo! Our 10-week courses have their own little holiday during July-August, and our 5-week courses shimmy in from stage left to work their summer season 🙂 These shorter courses offer a flexible way to keep dancing during the holiday season… join us in July, August – or both!

For example:
