Info on East Boldon classes

Classes tend to be based on a choreography in different styles of Egyptian Belly dance:  modern pop, folk, oriental etc. Open level classes have everyone from beginners to long term regulars so of mixed ability, Kay focuses on basic technique at the beginning usually going on to a siimple and fun routine.

Improvers classes - suitable for those that have the basics and want to work on new moves and different styles.

then goes on to more complex things in the second half for the more experienced dancers.

Kay works in Cairo at various festivals and takes groups to study with top dancers.  When this happens, Kay arranges for one of the teachers below or other top teachers in the area to take her classes.  This gives students the chance to develop their own style by learning with a range of teachers.
