Oriental Dance – bellydance
When the sun is a long time coming, oriental dance (also known as belly dance) brings light to the soul and heart.
It’s not just the music that transports us to warmer places, the whole body is stimulated from head to toe.
Above all, the small muscles and the deep muscles that stabilise the spine are trained. The beautiful and harmonious movements of oriental dance such as circles, figure eights and waves are as diverse and beautiful as life itself.
They relieve tension, improve posture and balance and lead to new energy and joie de vivre. This makes oriental dance a key to healing and maintaining health (not only) for the female body.
When women dance together, it creates connection and strengthens the sense of community. When oriental dance is danced in a group, it means love of life, wellness, self-awareness, healing, joy and communication.

Alexandra comes from Germany, where she has made a name for herself as an oriental dancer and teacher over the past 20 years. The focus of her work is oriental dance as femininity in motion. It lives in the magic of the moment and gives the dancer equal dignity and sensuality. This dance fascinates with the emotions of the soul, which in turn reflects the beauty of Arabic music.
Alexandra is a qualified teacher, dance teacher, yoga teacher and NLP master practitioner. Find more at www.shimmispectacle.com.
