Danse du ventre : santé et exercice avec rythme oriental

Abdominals, cardiovascular training, lifting weights… you’ve probably already started working out at the gym so you can enjoy the ski season to the fullest. But what if you tried something new?

We suggest you give belly dancing a go, an activity that lets you exercise to the rhythm of oriental music

Its origins

Belly dancing, also known as oriental dancing, is the result of the combination and evolution of various traditional dances from the Middle East, Greece and North Africa. Raqs baladi (رقص بلدي), its most elementary form, is characterised by the stationary dancers and the use of mostly pelvic movements. The raqs sharqi, on the other hand, is what is known today as oriental dance and includes typical Egyptian dance steps, turns and movements that involve all parts of the body—even if the leading role is still reserved for the pelvis.

Try it!

At INÚU, our Adults Only space, we invite you to take part in our initiatory oriental dance workshops on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:45 a.m. You will be able to have your first experience of this technique and learn the basic movements of the dance to the vibrations and undulations of the music.

The teacher, Virginia Lucas, will be there to guide you through this activity, which will take place on the outdoor terrace, weather permitting, or in the gymnasium hall, next to our 6-metre high tropical aquarium.

You do not need any prior knowledge or experience of dance to participate, and you can sign up 20 minutes before the workshop starts. We will lend you an oriental scarf to put over your swimsuit and use during the 30-minute activity. At the end of the class, we will share some time together to taste and enjoy a mint tea in true Moroccan style.

Reserve your admission to INÚU, CALDEA’s Adults Only space, enjoy our hot springs and take your first steps into the world of belly dancing.
