Desert Veils Bellydance and Desert Veils Bellydancers
Philosophy: Farida encourages her students to develop precise technique to underpin the emotional expression of the dance. To develop the dance to where the student wants to go. To interpret the music and communicate the dance in an authentic way and to encourage innovation and individuality within the art.
Farida is one of NZ’s most experienced dancers. She returned to Christchurch in 1989 to establish a school for teaching bellydance and a performance troupe. She continues to update her bellydance skills with regular travel to workshops and performances in the Middle East, Europe, USA and Australia. Farida is known for lyrical, charismatic dancing and authentic musical interpretation, coupled with precise technique.
