Our Vision

To have Middle Eastern Dance recognised as a creative art and dance form in New Zealand, that is accessible to everyone in a safe and welcoming environment.

We believe anyone can benefit from the regular practice of belly dance, and everyone is welcome to participate, whatever their challenge is.
