Phoenix Belly Dance is a multi-award-winning entertainment company and dance troupe who love sharing the art of Middle Eastern Dance through classes and choreographies that fuse contemporary concepts with the traditional roots of belly dance. Candice Frankland, the Director, has had the privilege of performing and teaching overseas, and has been working hard at growing the community and elevating belly dance in New Zealand to be taken as a serious dance form through extraordinary performances, theatre shows, collaborative projects, hosting international teachers and the annual Weekend Belly Dance Retreat.
We also offer large scale performances by our team of professional belly dancers for corporate functions, festivals, concerts, and theatre productions. We take care of the hassle of entertaining your guests with stunning costumes, dynamic group and solo dances and interactive fun! See us performing at the NZ Breakers games:Our vision is to develop and encourage participation by women and girls of all walks of life to take part in the beautiful feminine art of belly dance by providing regular classes, workshops, and performance opportunities. The relationships developed within the belly dance community, which includes students, families, performers and teachers, are a vital influence on the success of this growing art form. Therefore, our mission is to promote a fun learning environment and supportive performance demonstrations, with pride, passion, and grace.
