Bellydance Workshop | Club Fanø

Come and try "belly dancing" - it is good for both body and soul. Gentle form of exercise. And it's all about having fun.

Belly dance is the Danish word for oriental dance, which has its origins in the Middle East.

Oriental dance is one of the oldest forms of dance in the world and is still danced in many places in the Middle East. The interest has spread to other parts of the world and in Denmark belly dancing is also danced. It is dance and movement, and then it is also a gentle one for exercise, which gives minimal risk of injury and wear and tear on the knees and back.

Everyone can dance belly dance regardless of their fitness. No prerequisites are required - except the desire to begin. The whole body is touched when dancing. It is therefore also a misconception that it is only the belly you dance with. Hips, abdomen, shoulders, head, arms and hands are used in the dance.

Instructor is Ragnhild Kallehauge, who has been dancing oriental dance for 20 years. Ragnhild has been Fanø's face on the outside of the tourist office for many years, but now concentrates on dance.

There is a short warm up and then instruction in some of the basic steps. Ragnhild has a short choreography with her, which we learn as best we can. She also has hip belts with her. Remember to bring comfortable clothes; something you can move in.

For everyone between 12 and 100 years.
