“My mum once came home and said: “Guess what? I’m starting a belly dancing class!” and I replied with: “Not without me!” I/we have now been dancing on and off for about 7 years. I studied initially with a fantastic dancer from Somerset and attended many different workshops with experienced dancers and teachers. Along the way, my love for the dance has continued to grow as I have met beautiful and inspiring women.
After my time at university and starting my teaching job I decided I was ready to further my belly dance career. I recently took the JWAAD foundation teacher training course and received great marks and feedback. I have now taught belly dancing for around 2 years and have some wonderful students. A small selection of my dancers now perform with me at events (but this is only a selection so no pressure!!) and we are named ‘Desert Gems’. Do come along and have a go. Trust me, you’ll feel better for it!
