Perfect for women of any age, size or fitness level

There is so much I love about being in the teenage class. I enjoy catching up with my friends and making new friends. The exercise is really good but not too strenuous. We do a whole variety of dances and the costumes that we wear for the annual concert are just AMAZING!

I have travelled the world as a dancer with the National Folk troupe of Egypt.
In Australia I have seen women dancers that look like they have a stomach ache, and they call this Belly Dancing! But I have been so lucky to meet the amazing artist, the true Belly Dancer and wonderful choreographer, Ros (“Romaya”) of Shimmying Flames.

As a dance teacher myself I love trying new & exciting styles. Since starting classes with Ros over 4 years ago I've become a great fan of Bellydancing & love Ros's classes. I encourage anyone of any age & any dancing ability to come along & give it a try, you'll become just as addicted as the rest of us

I joined Shimmying Flames about 4 years ago, and have never looked back. I love my weekly class and the variety of belly dance styles we learn. Our lessons are fun and friendly plus you get a descent workout at the same time. Ros is a very warm and knowledgeable instructor. I would highly recommend Shimmying Flames.
