Rose Barter

Rose Barter leads Belly Dance classes and Fit For Life classes at the Dance Studio (Mwldan 4) opposite the main Theatr Mwldan building.


Belly Dance (Improvers)


For those who have already learnt the basics and want to learn more.


Belly Dance (Basics)

11.15am -12.15pm 

An Open class for anyone interested in learning Belly Dance. All ages and levels of fitness welcome.


Fit For Life for over 50s

12.15 - 1.15pm 

Fit For Life is gentle exercise that gives you a great top to toe workout without strain or excessive effort.

It is ideal for over 50’s as you can work at your own pace and never need to do anything that is not comfortable for you.

Fit For Life takes its inspiration from Belly Dance, but also includes gentle exercises and stretches designed to improve core strength,  fitness and mobility. Because it is based on dance, Fit For Life is also a lot of fun.


What women have said about the classes:

“Paying attention to posture has made me feel more graceful.”
“My movement is easier and my balance is much better”
“Helped me to be aware of breathing and has helped me to relax”
“More strength in my ankles, so able to do much more”
“I leave classes feeling stretched and invigorated”
“Beginning to get my waist back!”
“Boosted my confidence”

“Works on the core muscles, it’s like Pilates with dance and rhythm!”

“Have enjoyed every session”.


Who is it for?

The wonderful thing about Belly Dance and Fit For Life is that anyone of any size or any fitness level can enjoy it.


Class Size

Classes are usually limited to 12 people so that I can make sure that everyone learns the moves properly and gets maximum benefit from them.


What to wear?

  • Stretch or loose trousers . Any top that allows you to bend and stretch easily.
  • Bare feet or shoes with a flexible flat sole (like ballet pumps, not like trainers).
