First Floor Dance Studio 1 at Windsor Youth and Community Centre, Alma Road, Windsor SL4 3HD.  This term will focus on Classical Oriental to the song Alf Leyla wa Leyla.  This class needs to be booked as a full term course as it is progressive and leads to an optional performance on the 8th of December.  Please email ellen@shimmies.co.uk to book your place for the autumn term which starts Monday 10th September 2018.   This class sold out this term so trial lessons can only be booked subject to spaces being available.

At the Yoga Hub, 42 York Road, Maidenhead SL6 1SH.  This class will teach you all the bellydance basics in a fun and friendly environment as well as a fun choreography.  This class is progressive so you will need to book either as a half term or as a full term course.  You are also welcome to join for a trial lesson to see if bellydancing is for you before making a decision.

I am looking at launching some new beginners classes in either Burnham or Wraysbury in Autumn 2018 – if this is in the right area for you please contact me now to join our waiting list.  Drop me an email at ellen@shimmies.co.uk

If none of these times work for you I keep a pretty complete register of all the bellydance classes in the area.  Please do drop me a message at ellen@shimmies.co.uk and I’m happy to suggest other venues or teachers that may be closer to you or teach on different nights of the week.  A fabulous selection of  lessons in Windsor, Maidenhead and Wokingham is available at Rachel Bennett School of Bellydance
