Castle Head Field Centre, Grange over Sands, Cumbria, LA11 6QT
Belly Dance and relax with us at Castle Head in Grange-Over-Sands on the edge of the beautiful Lake District.
As well as the opportunity to try out a few new moves and really enjoy your dancing, we guarantee good food, great cake, retail therapy and of course partying in a relaxed and friendly group - all at an affordable price so you can treat yourself to some well-deserved Castle ‘Head Space’!
Our teachers and hosts are the lovely Sandra Thompson, Sarah Arnett, Rita Williamson and Loveday (Anna Bisco). They are brewing a range of open level workshops to tempt you with a mix of props, different dance styles and even a few options where you get to sit down and put your feet up (every workshop slot has a sit down option alongside all the dancey choices)! Our mission is to help you feel good about your dancing and have lots of fun doing it.
Barbara Conroy will be nourishing our souls with her excellent cooking including Middle Eastern themed dinners and lots of Tea, Coffee and Cake.
For an even bigger dose of relaxation Vanessa Clipsham will be on hand to help you relax with the option of Reflexology and Indian Head Massage*. Asif Qu will also be joining us to offer his beautiful Hennah art and private drumming lessons*.
We will also be joined by experienced photographer Sarah Selwood who will be capturing the weekends antics and also offering the chance to strut your stuff in a dancers photo shoot of your own*.
