'I loved how proficient Candice is at teaching bellydance. She has a warm, friendly, caring way with her students... She has a rare confidence rarely seen in bellydance teaches where she is able to meld with beginners and advanced dancers, staying humble although she is a very capable, talented and luscious dancer herself. I am very glad I had the opportunity to enjoy what Candice put together, including the structured theory in the notes that she handed out. I highly recommend [her]. Well done Candice, you really are awesome!!' - Ishtar, Professional Dancer and Teacher


'Candice of Phoenix Belly Dance is not only a competent and lively teacher, but also an excellent dancer. She encourages her students to give their best, without losing the fun and relaxation.' - Gislayne Martins, Regular Student


'Candice is more than a stunning dancer and teacher, she is a motivating person who enables you to express yourself through this beautiful dance form' - Sophie Kaulima-Irvine, Professional Troupe Member


'Molly has been Belly dancing since she was 6 yrs. I started Molly in belly dance for a number of reasons, one being because it is fun!! It is also great at helping to connect left and right sides of the brain and therefore enhance learning. Since Molly happens to have Down syndrome it has been great in increasing muscle tone, body awareness, confidence, enhancing her learning and most importantly its fun and she loves it! Since returning home to NZ four years ago Molly has been blessed with some wonderful teachers like Candice who have inspired her love of dance.!!' - Lorene Dennis, Molly Dennis' Mum
