Belly dance classes in Magill, SA. Acushla offers Adelaide bellydance lessons at the Magill Guide hall and Athelstone Community hall



Upcoming 9 week course:

Thursday October 17th- December 12th


6:30pm-7:30pm (we sometimes go an extra 10mins)

Open Level (beginners are welcome!)

Each class will start with some Qi Gong (gentle energy/movement exercises) and then continue on with tribal fusion belly dance technique and combinations! Each week we focus on a different “element” of tribal fusion and then start building our elements into beautiful sequences.

About Qi Gong: The moving Qi gong exercises are taught at a very basic level, with a focus on calming the mind and body, developing smooth graceful movement and regulating the breath to help relieve stress and increase energy levels. I have an advanced diploma in Traditional Chinese medicine (acupunture) and studied qi gong at a basic level during my education. The exercises i teach are safe, easy and suitable for all ages.

Please wear comfy clothing that allows freedom of movement (gym clothes such as leggings, tank top etc and a hip belt/scarf if you like!)

Welcome! I am director of Body Temple Dance Company,  South Australia. I have been teaching women the art of contemporary tribal fusion belly dance for the last 15 years (ATS, Tribal fusion, contemporary fusion). I also run Adelaide belly Dance events, collaborating with other local professional dancers as well as hosting the Bi Annual Adelaide Belly Dance Market along with Kalikah Jade. I am currently a commitee member for the Adelaide belly dance Festival which is held twice a year.

After creating, producing and editing SA's first instructional Belly Dance DVD series, and then creating my first Online Pregnancy Program, I've learnt a lot about teaching belly dance!

My first ever instructional DVD The Art of Tribal Belly Dance, has sold in over 15 different countries and i have recently transformed it into an online lessons package, with ongoing support and mentoring along the way! You can read about it HERE.

My intention for teaching belly dance, is that woman of all walks of life are able to learn to love and honour their body regardless of size or age. The transformations I have witnessed in countless women who embark on this journey has been profound, and this is what sparks my passion to keep offering my experience and knowledge as a belly dance instructor.
