Bellydance Classes

Ianessa’s straightforward, fun teaching style is influenced by 25 years as a student of dance, ongoing study with Egyptian masters of bellydance on her regular visits to Egypt, and her love of sharing knowledge and inspiring others to enjoy life through exploring their passions, to be the best they can be.  Her students are supported, challenged and inspired to go beyond their own personal limitations, to learn and perfect technique and to find and express themselves, and their passion through the dance.  

Ianessa holds a Certificate in Safe Dance Teaching specialising in Middle Eastern Dance (QUT).
