Meet our instructors:
Jasmine began dancing at the age of 5 with the Shimmy Sisters and quickly progressed to becoming the youngest member of our adult troupe (Hip To Hip). Not only is Jasmine a beautiful dancer but she also has a special affinity with younger children (we often jokingly call her the Pied-Piper of children as they always flock to her whenever she is out and about), which makes her a fabulous instructor of the Shimmy Club classes.
Shimmy Club At Home
Would you like to treat your child to an exclusive class at home? Our ‘taster’ class can be packaged up and brought to your place. We bring hip scarves, veils and music so they can dance in the comfort of home.
Alternatively, we can offer our “Shimmy Princess” bellydance experience, just perfect for birthdays! Again, we provide the veils and hip scarves, games and dancing to ensure your little princess and her friends have a memorable party. We also have a special bellydance present for the birthday girl.
What to wear?
Kids love to dress up and these classes provide a great opportunity to do so. Just make sure they are in comfortable clothes for easy movement.
Please note we prefer children to dress like children and not mini-adults. Girls are requested not to wear bra or bikini tops to class, performances or rehearsals. Crop tops are fine, and of course the more flowing the skirt, the more fun when you twirl! Shoes are not required, although ballet slippers, jiffys or flat soled shoes can be worn.
With all of our junior classes the focus is to cover a variety of basic rhythms and dance styles suitable for both boys and girls.
