You are invited to learn the art of Belly Dancing! Belly Dancing is a form of exercise with graceful dance moves and beautiful feminine creativity based on the folkloric and performance dance styles of the Middle East. It’s a great way to get fit, flexible, confident and work every muscle in your body while having fun!

  • You can join at any time with access to belly dance classes in Central, South, West Auckland and the North Shore, in Albany, Birkdale, Western Springs, CBD and Mt Eden.

  • One of the biggest schools in New Zealand that hosts lots of student events, safe performance opportunities, dance retreats, and international teachers
  • Belly dancing is for everyone of any age, size or fitness level and no experience is necessary! 

  • "I never thought I'd say this but belly dancing is so much fun and it's not as easy at it looks! I love the challenge, the fun ladies that are learning with me and the comfortable environment we learn in. Plus, it's really great exercise too!" - Krystal S


    "Phoenix classes and annual retreats are a highlight in my calendar. Candice has hit on an ideal combination of learning, having fun, and performance opportunities. Well done - long may they continue :)" - Suzanne M


    Our classes are focused on fitness and fun with the education of the technical movements, history and culture of the various modern and folkloric styles of the Middle East, choreographies for optional performances, as well as fusion elements to give students a holistic experience that is all together challenging, fun, and rewarding.
