What is Belly Dancing?
Belly dance is a Western term for traditional Middle Eastern dance styles. It is sometimes called Middle Eastern dance or Arabic dance in the West, or by the Turkish term çiftetelli (Greek: τσιφτετ?λι). The term "Belly dance" is a misnomer as all parts of the body are involved in the dance; the most featured body part in raqs sharqi being the hips. Belly dance takes many different forms depending on country and region, both in costume and dance style;; and new styles have been invented in the West as its popularity has spread globally... more on wikipedia here>

salsa dance classes in christchurch New Zealand Sevillanas Dance Classes - Wed 19th May  
Start Date: Wednesdays from 19th May 2010 (Studio 3)

Sevillanas

Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
FREE 1st Class
Course Length: 10 weeks (every Wed)
Teacher: Ekaitz
Level: Beginners
Studio: #3 at Salsa Latina
Linear Salsa On1

Learn how to dance Sevillanas and get a taste of the Spanish Fiesta! The Sevillana is a colourful and exciting Spanish dance style, with a touch of Flamenco, performed by fiestas of all kinds throughout Spain.

'Sevillanas' is a social dance, danced by couples of all ages and sexes during celebrations (fiestas or ferias), often by whole families and 'pueblos'. 'Sevillanas' choreography is very stable, and knowing it is very useful, since it is a fiesta dance. This is why learning flamenco usually starts with this particular dance: it is easier to reach a particular level and there are more occasions for practice and training (even for men).
It is a very vivid dance, often excluded from flamenco by "purists". Paradoxically, during spectacles and shows it is usually Sevillana dancing that ordinary people take for 'the real, true flamenco', as it is full of turns.
