Jade Belly dance holds classes in the Bellingen, Repton, Bonville and Coffs harbour (NSW, Australia) areas during school terms. Jade is also available for private dance classes by appointment. Jade specialises in almost all styles of Bellydance including tribal but has a particular love of zills (finger cymbals) and sword balancing. Don’t worry though, if you are a beginner you don’t need to go near the swords!!

KIDS CLASSES INFO
Let your child learn creative movement with a Middle Eastern dance flavour. With dance, games, rhythm, music and props it is always lots of fun! Jade is certified Active after school coach with the Australian Sports Commission, this involves training as well as assessment as to one’s ability to teach children. Numbers in this class are strictly limited and while we have a few places available, bookings are advised. Contact Jade at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone her on 02 66554896.
The video below is a bit of fun. This is a trailer I made of a little bit of footage from one of my kids classes. We only spent a few minutes on the filming (because we had a class to get on with!), so it is not meant to be a work of art. It is not meant to be for public comment (unless you want to say its cute!). I won an ipad2 and thought I would make the kids giggle and feel special, so I have used imovies trailers. The Ha- babies is my little attempt at a bi-lingual pun. Habibi is Arabic for my darling or my love and these are my little darlings that I love! If you want your children to join the fun, come and join our classes!
Last terms AASC classes were at Raleigh and Crossmaglen Public Schools, it was so much fum working with these talented students!!!
First term we went tropical!! Thats bellynesian!!!

Unsolicited quotes from students (and other bellydance teachers) :
Thank YOU for that lovely term of belly dancing. I think you have a natural talent as a teacher. You understand the insecurities involved in doing something new and a bit challenging and you work with those in a kind, understanding and yet encouraging manner. You tune in, you’re thorough, you listen and you adjust. All great qualities in a teacher.
Thank you for such a great day today at the growers market in bellingen!! I had such a great time and i had so much fun. It was sooooo great to perform today for the very first time ever for belly dancing, i was really really nervous at the start but as the dance went on i got more and more confident and i wish i could do it all over again!!
Soooo thank you soooo much!!
Jade is dedicated to ensuring each dancer works hard to perfect good technique- a good grounding that has all sorts of positive spin-offs.
I love your classes, it’s so much fun. And by the way I already LOVE the new dance we’re learning. So sensual
and feminine, that’s what I’m looking for!
…thanks for the classes, they were fantastic and very uplifting as a woman.
Thanks so much for doing this for us. You are a great teacher and I appreciate your patience with me. The video looks great. I will be studying it intensely from now till Sat!! Love Rach
Thank you so much for ordering extra zills, looking forward to learning how to make them sound like chimming bells next term.
I really really enjoy your class, thank you so much for sharing yourself and teaching your passion with us all. Mwa…
