Learn to belly dance with Kay Taylor of Farida Dance

Egyptian style belly dance is suitable for women of all shapes, sizes and ages. It is a good form of exercise and great fun!  Kay Taylor is an inspirational teacher and performer.

Belly dance is particularly good for people with lower back problems, anything that strengthening the pelvic floor muscles would benefit and, as it is not a high impact exercise, it is suitable for people with knee problems.  Kay believes in enthusing her students with her love of the dance, music and culture.  Many of Kays students now teach classes in the area as well.  If you cannot make a class with Kay, you may want to try some of these.
