I have always loved to dance and spent several years exploring African dancing before Belly dance. I went to Middle Eastern dance classes so I could have lunch with my girlfriends but soon fell under the spell of this exquisite dance form.
The person who has taken me on this fabulous journey is Shekhinah Morgan through dance, music, drumming, costumes, other peoples' culture and the feminine. I have danced under the guidance of Shekinah for twelve years and had the privilege of joining where I play a number of Middle Eastern instruments including the tabala, frame drum and rek. I also perform in the troupe TARAB as a dancer.
Over the years I have taken many workshops with prominent Australian and overseas Middle Eastern dance teachers.
I began teaching in 2004 . I believe everybody is a dancer, drummer, singer and creator. It gives me great pleasure to guide people in self-expression through the body in dance.
I would like to bring to people the pleasure of movement, the joy of listening and feeling the rhythm of middle eastern music by using simple belly dance steps and easy choreographies. My classes are also about women enjoying each others' company and learning in a fun way. My advanced class is dynamic incorporating many varied styles which makes for loads of fun.
