Wow, it’s already September, and we only have 3 more weeks left in Term 3! What a great couple of months it’s been. An amazing visit from Hadia of Canada, with an awesome Showcase Concert last Sunday night. We had student performances at Bellydance Expo and the local Wilkins St Fair. We look forward to Term 4, which begins Saturday 11th October.

19th July Term 3 Begins

The Winter Hafla last weekend left us all on a high!! We can’t wait to get back to a new term starting 19th July, and running for 10 weeks.

Cynthia Tabone will be returning to teach her Saturday classes. We are starting a new bellydance class on Wednesdays at 7pm with Ali. Come and join her for a unique experience, as she combines learning the art of bellydance with the fundamentals of Arabic rhythms. There is an element of live drumming in each class for students to dance to.
