How are Zumarrad’s classes different? 
Bellydance has exploded around the world, branching off into many styles and flavours, all competing for your attention. It can be daunting! Zumarrad takes it back to the source. At the heart, bellydance is a beautiful social dance practiced by men, women and children in Middle Eastern homes and parties. It’s about expressing yourself using a core set of movements that can be adapted in almost infinite ways, and most of all, about having fun.
Trying bellydance with Zumarrad will give you new knowledge about posture, movement and musicality that you can take with you into other dances – you can learn to move your hips and shimmy your shoulders with beautiful control and add an extra layer of style to your shines! The class is designed to be non-intimidating and relaxing – though you’ll be surprised how much muscle you use – and you’ll also learn a little about the cultures where this dance originates. Bellydance has helped so many women (and men) all over the world feel happier about their bodies and imparted poise, grace and confidence to people who thought they could never become dancers.

The benefits of bellydance with Zumarrad:
• Tone and strengthen your core muscles
• Improve your posture
• Learn to move your hips and torso with finesse, control and musical feeling
• Feel better about your body as you learn how much it can do
• Familiarise yourself with gorgeous music from Middle Eastern cultures
• Learn about Middle Eastern dances

What is bellydance?
Many myths and legends swirl around the origins of bellydance. Its precursors are probably ancient, but the performance versions we see today – the sexy woman in a sparkling two-piece costume, trailing a chiffon veil - trace back only to about the 1920s, when people in the colonised countries of Egypt, Lebanon and Turkey began to experiment with adding a more cosmopolitan flavour to their native dances. Traditionally it’s a solo, improvised dance that allows you to really feel and express the music, using juicy circles and undulations, crisp locks and bubbly shimmies. And it’s not just for the stage! The very same movements are used by young and old, fat and thin, male and female when a favourite song comes on and the mood is right.
Bellydance is a dance, not a workout system. But practiced regularly and with correct alignment, bellydance will tone and strengthen all of your core muscles, and you may notice some more definition. You will come to feel a strength and firmness that was not there before.

Zumarrad began studying bellydance in 1998 and has never stopped. As well as performing and speaking at cultural events, international festivals and theatre shows, she was the first person in New Zealand to carry out a formal academic study of bellydance, and is published internationally. Zumarrad trained under Christchurch’s renowned Gendi Tanner and has taken classes from top stars and talents from Egypt, Turkey, Canada, the United States and Australia.

Bellydance FAQ's
• What should I wear and bring?
Comfortable stretchy workout wear, and bare feet or ballet slippers/jazz shoes. Ladies, you will want a supportive bra. A scarf to tie around your hips is traditional and will help you focus your movements, but please, no coin scarves in class (they are noisy and they shed coins on the lovely dance floor!)

• Can men really do this dance?
Yes, this is how many guys in the Middle East dance socially and some of the world’s top bellydance performers are men. Having a go at bellydance will help you loosen up your Kiwi hips for your Latin dance too.

• Is bellydance really a dance of seduction?
Every adult dancer in every dance form can be sexy or seductive to somebody, but most of the time we dance purely to be sociable, to have fun and to express ourselves with our friends. Bellydance is exactly the same!

• Is bellydance for everybody?
Yes! To bellydance you don’t need extreme flexibility, big muscles or a partner. If you can walk, you can learn to bellydance at a simple level, and movements can be modified to suit your body so that you remain safe. Only if you have very bad knees or serious spinal problems is this dance risky.
