Fun bellydance workshops for your event or celebration.

Dancing and celebrations go hand in hand together. Is it even a celebration if there is no dancing involved? It could be if there is food but if there is dancing, you know for sure that you’re at a party. But to get everybody to dance on your party can be kind of hard. People don’t always feel at ease enough to do it. So if you want to have a real party when you are celebrating your bachelorette party, your birthday, your baby shower (many of my students have kept on dancing while pregnant until they were almost ready to give birth), your company party, a theme party or… just for fun, have a bellydance workshop!

A bellydance workshop is a fun and active way of celebrating something, connecting people and getting everybody to dance. In the workshop you will learn some basic bellydance movements. You will feel like you are spending a day as a princess in a fairytale. Laughter, happiness and sweat are guaranteed!

You can book a bellydance workshop for example for a:

  • Bachelor party for a bride to be
  • Kids party
  • Corporate event
