Phynia

Phynia is a Middle Eastern Dance Artist based in Fremantle, Western Australia. Her authenticity and warmth in her interactions with her audience and passion for performing, make her a highly sought after performer and teacher in Australia.

Phynia initially discovered Middle Eastern dance at the age of eight, after her mother begun classes with Belyssa Radzivanas. After attending classes for a while, she moved to study with Keti Sharif, who specialized in children’s belly dance.

Since then, she has continued to develop her performance skills over the years under the tuition of Perth’s most accomplished dancers, including, Eva Cass, Dawn White, Rose Ottaviano as well as many international artists. Phynia has also continued to study and teach Drama in a high school context, which has broadened her outlook on performance and teaching.

 As a teacher of Middle Eastern Dance, Phynia sees each student as a unique individual, with their own style and aims to help her students develop their own sense of self through dancing. Her approach to dance is holistic, with focal points in her classes including : self-expression, playfulness, musicality and origins of music and movement, improvisation, engaging an audience as well as drilling technique and learning her signature moves and style. Phynia is very personal in her instruction and approaches teaching with playful humour and openness, creating an inclusive environment for all students in their diversity.

Princess Fee


If you love raqs sharqi, danse orientale, getting your spooky on or just boogieing on down to arabic music in a hip belt, you're in the right place!

I am lucky enough to be very eclectic in my Bellydance loves, and dance everything from hot pink cabaret, to sassy shaabi, to tribal and tribal fusion, all the way through the glorious spectrum of dance to gothic bellydance.

It DOES mean that my costume wardrobe has it's own postcode, but it means that you have a music suite and a repetoire for any event, any theme or any mood you need to express.

I run two classes at the Mata Hari Studio on a Wednesday night. 

6.15pm Class - Sayyida - a fun class based on Egyptian and Turkish bellydance styles. We explore different 

styles, props, rhythms and fashions throughout the bellydance world. We learn a choreography each term for performance and this class is suitable for intermediate students with some bellydance experience.

7.30pm class - BellySlink - a more challenging class for beyond-beginners. This is an improvised gothic-fusion dance style called Zyama and is slower, slinkier and more muscular, so it's great for toning and strengthening your core. Slow things down and get slinky with it!

Ayesha

Ayesha has been a teacher and performer in Perth for 30 years and for 10 years was part owner of the Sheik to Sheik bellydance studio in Beaconsfield with fellow bellydancer Eva. After a few years hiatus she has taken up her hip scarf once again and is embarking on a six week beginners course focusing on technique, musicality, history and the fundamentals of Egyptian style bellydance.

These classes will be fun as well as instructional and we will be focusing on short combinations each week rather than choreographies. We will also be delving in and out of Keti’s A-Z combinations as Ayesha is a qualified A-Z teacher.

The cost of the 6 week course is $90 or $20 casually. There will be a further discount if you are attending Princess Fee’s class directly afterwards. Be prepared for giggles as well as wiggles as Ayesha keeps her classes light hearted sometimes at her own expense! Wear loose comfortable clothing, leggings or tights and there will always be a spare hip scarf to borrow. Please be aware that membership of the Free Spirit Community is a necessity and can be done on line.

I am happy to discuss any concerns you may have prior to the class.

Cat

When I attended my first class of Global Caravan Tribal Bellydance (GCTB) I felt like I had “found” my dance home. I loved the vibrancy, colour, adornments, diversity in the women dancing, and the large collection of moves that give you a feeling of being grounded and connected to yourself and others.

GCTB pulls together various passions and interests of mine. Dance and music have been woven through my life from a young age, and I enjoy travelling and forever learning about cultural diversity. I love the rhythms, drumming, and ziling (finger cymbals) in dance, and the ever growing repertoire of moves are influenced by tribes and culture all over the world.

Ultimately though, my favourite aspect of dancing GCTB is the connection you create with other women. Making eye contact and smiling with a friend, new or old, to share the special moment in dance is beautiful. It’s empowering. It keeps me coming back for more! It’s exciting that there are tribes of women all over Australia and the world dancing GCTB and that I could jump in and dance together with them.

I am continuously learning, and dance regularly throughout the week with my beautiful teacher Richelle Spencer, and also with Caravan Project Western Australia and the Silk Road Gypsies dance troupes. I have completed Collective Soul 1 and 2 with our incredible Master teacher Nina Martinez and look forward to completing further Collective Soul and Teacher Training intensives to continue to learn, grow, and evolve as a dancer and teacher.

I direct Silver Bloom Circle, and teach two classes on a Monday night at the Mata Hair studio in Bibra Lake. The beginners class from 6:45 – 7:45pm is a fun class to start your journey in GCTB, while the progressives class from 8:00 - 9:00pm offers those with experience in GCTB an opportunity to further develop and refine their skills. The classes offer a friendly and safe environment for women of all ages, body shapes, and dance experience to commence, and continue their journey in GCTB. 

I also facilitate ‘Musicality for Global Caravan’ workshops on Saturday afternoons. These workshops are aimed at women who already dance GCTB and would like to extend their knowledge in the musicality aspects of dance, ziling, and drumming. It supports women to find and feel the beat of the music, dance in time with the music and its phrasing, build confidence to lead, dance with zils, drum together and for each other, and a whole lot more!

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and GCTB. Please come join us and start your week with an evening of dance, music, and a wonderful group of women. I’d love to dance with you!

Alura

Alura was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia and started bellydancing with Belyssa Academy Of Dance Orientale in 2010 after finding an ad in the local newspaper when searching for something new in her life. To name a few, she has studied Persian and improvisation with Michelle Ridsdale; Egyptian cabaret and Khaleegy with Princess Fee Bellydance; Oriental and Khaleegy with the Daughters of Horus; Samba with Yamina Hofer; oriental with Carolyn Verhoef and; tribal with Sandy Burrow.

With these organisations she has enjoyed dancing continuously in WAMED, Ariel the story of a wilful mermaid, the Zahgareet Hafla 2019 and local community events. She has recently commenced studying improvisation and professional performance techniques. Her solo debut improvising to American Chicano music at the Zahgareet Hafla produced by Adrianna Gordon received amazing feedback.

Alura continues her study internationally by participating in programs such as Awaken the Dancer Within (Bali), World Tribal Fusion (Bali) and Egypt Revisited (Egypt) and; organising the annual Mahtowa’s Hafla.
