Bellydance in Brunswick

P1100277.JPGWhat an incredible start to Winter! We’ve had full houses in most classes this term, and the energy and openness for learning in the room has been so wonderful to witness!

No matter what walk of life you come from or what tradition you follow, as I study more about more about human consciousness, embodiment is the key to happiness and contentedness, so if we can get into our state of flow though dance, then what an amazing way to spend your free time, get fit, toned and commune in dance other like-minded souls.

I am so passionate about bellydance, and it is such an absolute pleasure to get to share this incredible dance form which I have been embodying and studying for over 15years with incredible, enthusiastic and diverse women every week!
