Dungog Dash and Dawdle

The Dungog Dash and Dawdle is a cross country fun run which showcases the stunning hills and valleys of Dungog, the beautiful and historic Dungog Common. It is the key fund raiser of much needed funds for the Dungog Shire Community Centre, the hub for all things community in the region.

There is a 21 km half marathon trail run, 12km dash, 6km dawdle, Kids Dash or Dawdle (12 years and under) and a 'Tail Runner' Doggy Half. Dash or Dawdle dogs must be on a leash for the entire race, accompanied by and in control of a responsible human + face painting, jumping castle and sausage sizzle.

Belly Dancing - Women only group
Dec

5:45 PM17:45

Belly Dancing - Women only group

From Thursday 19 October at CWA Hall, moving to Anglican Hall from 9 November.

Exotic, flowing, graceful, belly dance is one of the oldest forms of dance. It’s also a non-impact, weight-bearing exercise and is suitable for all ages, with a whole range of benefits for health (see just a few listed below). Above all, belly dance is fun, and a great way to meet others and express your inner self!

Over the 8 weeks of the class, beginners will learn the classic moves, hip flicks, hip turns, figure of 8s – and how to shimmy. Beyond beginner students will move to the next layer and delve into veil work. Both groups will learn a short choreographed piece to perform for family and friends!

Sally O’Loughlin (Amina is her stage name) has been dancing for 23 years and teaching for 21. Amina spent three years as part of a troupe and has taught in her own private studio. She brings a wealth of experience and a sense of fun to her classes – and a commitment to making belly dancing a rich and rewarding experience for everybody. Amina has taught students aged 4 to 84 – age is no barrier.

This course is for women only – you can expect a nurturing, no-fear environment.

When & where: 5.45-7.00pm, Thursdays from 19 October to 2 November 2017 at the CWA Hall, moving from 9 November till 7 December at the Anglican Hall, Dungog.

Cost: $15 per class payable on the night, or pay for all eight classes only $105.

What to wear: Skirt, loose clothing, scarf around your hips , no shoes during the class. If you have a veil bring one along!

Benefits: Belly dance is a non-impact, weight-bearing exercise and is thus suitable for all ages. It is a good exercise for the prevention of osteoporosis in older people. Many of the moves involve isolations, which improves flexibility of the torso. Belly dance moves are beneficial to the spine, as the full-body moves lengthens (decompress) and strengthens the entire column of spinal and abdominal muscles in a gentle way. Belly dancing is natural to a woman’s bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form.

Belly Dancing - Women only group

Belly Dancing - Women only group

From Thursday 19 October at CWA Hall, moving to Anglican Hall from 9 November.

Exotic, flowing, graceful, belly dance is one of the oldest forms of dance. It’s also a non-impact, weight-bearing exercise and is suitable for all ages, with a whole range of benefits for health (see just a few listed below). Above all, belly dance is fun, and a great way to meet others and express your inner self!

Over the 8 weeks of the class, beginners will learn the classic moves, hip flicks, hip turns, figure of 8s – and how to shimmy. Beyond beginner students will move to the next layer and delve into veil work. Both groups will learn a short choreographed piece to perform for family and friends!

Sally O’Loughlin (Amina is her stage name) has been dancing for 23 years and teaching for 21. Amina spent three years as part of a troupe and has taught in her own private studio. She brings a wealth of experience and a sense of fun to her classes – and a commitment to making belly dancing a rich and rewarding experience for everybody. Amina has taught students aged 4 to 84 – age is no barrier.

This course is for women only – you can expect a nurturing, no-fear environment.

When & where: 5.45-7.00pm, Thursdays from 19 October to 2 November 2017 at the CWA Hall, moving from 9 November till 7 December at the Anglican Hall, Dungog.

Cost: $15 per class payable on the night, or pay for all eight classes only $105.

What to wear: Skirt, loose clothing, scarf around your hips , no shoes during the class. If you have a veil bring one along!

Benefits: Belly dance is a non-impact, weight-bearing exercise and is thus suitable for all ages. It is a good exercise for the prevention of osteoporosis in older people. Many of the moves involve isolations, which improves flexibility of the torso. Belly dance moves are beneficial to the spine, as the full-body moves lengthens (decompress) and strengthens the entire column of spinal and abdominal muscles in a gentle way. Belly dancing is natural to a woman’s bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form.
