I fell in love with belly dance when a friend dragged me along to a class in college. After shimmying, circling, and twisting for an hour to fun, fascinating music, I was hooked. I love exercising my body and brain to express joy through dance. The variety in belly dance is endless – music, styles, props, costumes … it’s impossible to be bored.
After several years of learning as a student, I decided to train as a belly dance teacher to share my love of dance with others and to help people develop their creative belly dance skills. I offer belly dance classes and performances to dancers in the greater Belfast area.
As a student, I have attended regular belly dance classes with local teachers Sara McDonald, Joanna McClean, and Adele Glenn, and private lessons via Skype with
Galit Mersand. I have attended many specialist workshops with national and international belly dance teachers.
I have completed the ‘JWAAD Safe Delivery of Belly Dance Classes’ course, a One Awards accredited Level 3 qualification. I have public liability insurance for dance teaching. I am a qualified first aider.
