    With Deadre Appleton

    7:00 - 8:00 pm - Beginners (Level 1) Classical style
    8:00 - 9:00pm - Improvers (Level 2) Classical style
    9:00 - 9:45pm - Anuket Rehearsal


    Helping you to feel good about yourself, get fit and have fun whatever your age, shape or size.

    Deadre Appleton believes that people only exercise regularly when they feel comfortable and when it ceases to become a chore. By welcoming and integrating all ages, shapes and sizes, keeping the atmosphere light and fun, and by developing friendships and a sense of community, dancers no longer feel they have to come to class to ‘work out’ but rather to enjoy themselves.

    Deadre welcomes any student dancer to become a member of Anuket,a student performance troupe. Anuket performs at local events including fetes and fundraisers, and, wherever possible, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Care. Students of all levels, from complete beginners upwards, are welcome to join. The only criteria is a commitment to develop yourself in the dance and regular attendance at rehersals. If you do join you will find that your confidence will grow along with your strength, flexibility and skill.

    Classical classes mainly use choreography to teach all different styles of belly dance from many areas of the Middle East.
