- Bellyup is a family friendly group and school that shares the joy of belly dance with women of all ages. It's a modern fusion of folkloric and cabaret styles which incorporates the inherent joy of the dance and echoes back to its very origins where women gathered to share and revel in each other's company. Daughters, mothers, grandmothers, family, friends dancing as one with laughter and fun! It's a joyous burst of colour and movement.
- The Bellyup school teaches the dance through choreographies. Each term of the syllabus building on the knowledge and skills gained in the previous dance. This approach uses the techniques handed down from the origins of the dance where in small communities you learned the dance steps, rhythms, attitudes and history from your mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and members of the extended community. Through this approach we believe we engender sisterhood, friendship and lasting bonds as well as a love and enjoyment of the dance, be it just for ourselves, or dancing for others.
