JUST recently, a group of up to 20 ladies who attend the Torrevieja U3A Group took part in a six-week taster course to learn about the ancient art of Egyptian and Turkish Belly Dancing.
The course was a great success, so much so, that another course is expected to be run in the early part of the New Year.
Belly dancing, despite Hollywood’s efforts to portray the subject as entertainment for men, was apparently never intended to be performed for the pleasure of the male population but was intended to simply be a beneficial and safe form of exercise for ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes.
It’s understood that all the ladies that took part enjoyed the experience immensely and seemingly derived some benefit from it, hence the keenness to partake in another session.
Do you have a skill or pastime that you feel you could demonstrate and would be of interest to others? In which case you’ll be more than welcome to come along and present those talents to the U3A membership. It can be a one-off experience or a short or long term course.
The Torrevieja U3A are always on the lookout for new and interesting subjects for their members to take part in, so if you are interested, please contact the Group Co-ordinator.
