Belly Dance Circle
Belly dance, also called Raks Sharqui, is a celebration of strength and beauty of women, although through the years and evolution of this dance form, it has also come to include men as well. The SU Belly Dance Circle promotes Raks Sharqui as an art form, and helps to build self-esteem and confidence in dancers. The club teaches many different styles of the dance, ranging from folkloric moves to more modern cabaret to the quirky moves of tribal fusion. Throughout the academic year the organization puts on several group performances, and also encourages dancers to choreograph solo pieces.
"Belly Dance Circle is for you if you enjoy performing and would like to learn to belly dance in a fun, casual environment. No matter who you are or what your body shape or size is, we are very open and a great place to find friends. Belly dance is about learning to truly be comfortable with your own body and celebrating the beauty of the dance form."
