Happy New Year from all of us at Hipsinc! We hope that everyone had a great Christmas! We all did but are now excited and ready to get back to teaching our amazing students.

And to further entice you back, we have our famous January promotion once again!!
This year we are giving everyone two free hipsinc classes!! Yes that's right - two free classes! Pay for four classes in the first two weeks of January and you'll get a voucher entitling you to six classes! This great offer will only be available during the first two weeks of classes in 2014 so get yourself back to class nice and early and have loads of extra shimmies on us!!
We have so many exciting projects and ideas for this year. It's going to be a FABULOUS 2014 so let's shimmy our socks off and burn off some of those Christmas calories !!!

Yes it’s here! Time to get back in shape after the Christmas blow out, and this year there's a great choice of belly dance bootcamps and body workshops.
WORK THAT BODY : Saturday Club: January's Saturday Club takes place on Saturday 18th January. 1.30-3.30 at Edenbridge Leisure Centre. Called 'THE BODY', it's a workshop in 3 parts: In the first part, renowned dietitian Ali will give us all advice on the best nutrition for bellydancers both for classes and performing. Participants will then work with Lea on her favourite bellydance drills to work their bodies and hone technique. This class will finish with a full 30 minute stretch. There are just a handful of places left so contact Lea@hipsinc.com to make sure you don't miss out! £13.
Chloe will be holding her annual fast and fun post-Christmas bootcamp workshop on Saturday 25th January in Forest Hill and Hastings on Monday 27th January for £15 only. See here for more info!
And Charlotte is running a special half price promotion on her brilliant Bellydance Bootcamp classes at Danceworks in London every Sunday in January. Even more excitingly, January 26th is Danceworks Open Day and both Charlotte's bellydance classes will be completely free and no membership to pay! For more info on the class see here :
Bellytastic 2013 was another sell out success! Putting on a show is not an easy task - not only do you have to choreograph the dances during the year but you've also got to sell the tickets, organise the seating, food, running order, parking, filler music, printouts, your own dance, changing rooms, lighting, candles, table cloths, comfy shoes, cover up, microphone, costumes, lap top…. This is my brain on run up to show night!
But the main thing to remember is to enjoy it and every year my students & the guest students totally blow me away. It is these moments in my job as a bellydance teacher that are priceless, to see my ladies on stage, in costume, dancing and with a big smile! I remember each one of them on their first class and then I see them under the lights giving it their all, with the support of their fellow dancers, friends and family. Hipsinc is about building a safe and nurturing community for all our students and friends and Bellytastic never fails to demonstrate this to the maximum every year. But it is you, the students, that bring the magic to the show and for that I thank you (and my mum for all her help!)
Love Chloe x
Hipsinc is 'Born to Shimmy'!!!
