Senior belly dancing offered in Waynesville

Written by 

Middle Eastern (belly) dancing classes for seniors will be held every Thursday from 9 to 10:15 a.m. at the Creative Thought Center on Pigeon Street in Waynesville.

Exercise & Movement for Middle Eastern Dance is a basic class that offers stretching, strengthening and a breath-focused approach to learning the forms of the belly dance; it is geared toward mature women or anyone who wants a gentle, fun work-out.

Damira/ Pamela Norris, CMA (Certified Movement Analyst) has studied, performed and taught ethnic dance styles from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Tunisian, Persia, and Turkey. She brings to the classroom her training as a Laban Movement Analyst. She has been leading dance and exercise classes for seniors since 1995. She was awarded the Silver Artist Gold Medal for her presentation during the Senior Games Awards in May 2010 in Waynesville.

“I have been studying the dance for over 33 years and teaching for 30, and I am constantly amazed at its healing and empowering effects,” said Norris.
