After a Summer break, we can unearth the hip scarves, veils, canes and Isis Wings because it’s time to bellydance!! I don’t know about you, but I have a little bit extra to shimmy with due to some particularly yummy treats over the holidays, so I think we’ll make some fitness and cardio a part of class!

Belly Dance and Polynesian Dance

Polynesian dancers can shake their hips like a belly dancer!

I was at the Wachter Reserve Family Day Out today (in a Mum capacity not as a performer this time!) and had the privilege to watch the Cook Islands Royal Polynesian Dance Team perform. As I watched it, it got me thinking about how Belly Dance has similarities with many other cultural dances. They way these ladies moved their hips was very impressive, and their skirts really enhanced their moves. Great job!

As an aside, but worth a mention, also at the Festival was a very impressive band “Code One” made up of Victorian police officers. Their pint-sized female lead singer, Lerena Novoa,  really packed a full-sized punch as she belted out songs that had the whole crowd clapping and cheering. Fantastic public relations for Victoria Police, as they are awesome!

Charni from Happy Hips Belly Dance was very impressed with the Code One Police Band of Police Victoria
