Belly dance is an exciting yet accessible dance form. In New Zealand there are thousands of belly dancers of all ages – not only women and girls but men and boys as well – dancing in a wide range of styles.

MEDANZ is the umbrella organization for New Zealand belly dancers and we not only have members with decades of experience but also those just starting on their dance journey. We are the go-to site for New Zealand belly dance. We can point you to teachers that will guide you to become the dancer you want to be. We also provide information on belly dance events including shows, workshops, retreats and Festivals. Plus we can also fill in some of the blanks about the art, practice, and history of belly dance.
