About Bellydance Moves

My name is Sara, and my dream of dancing all began many years ago with my sister Anne when I was just 7 years old, taught by our mother in our living room, dancing to dads collection of classical music and Mike Oldfield's Tubular bells. We frequently entertained family and friends dancing around our dimmer switched pull down light (thought we were so cool having this) it was the 70’s after all!

We spent endless nights dancing gracefully around the living room, in our "Woolworths" finest orange and purple nighties. Our dad wasn't keen on TV so we were the entertainment for several years, Pans People didn't have a look in!

As the years went by the dancing drifted and it wasn't until I moved house many years later, I came across an old photograph of myself dressed as a harem dancer aged 8, which was taken after winning a fancy dress competition, which was published in The Sunderland Echo in 1975. Looking upon this photo of my younger self reminded me of the joyful memories i had of dancing. This is when I decided to fulfill my dream of dancing, and in March 2010, Bellydance Moves was born.

I now run 7 classes across Sunderland, I also teach in Woman's Institutes, Jr and High schools, perform in restaurants , teach private lessons, party packages available for hen nights/days, birthdays and even children’s parties, I arrange goddess evenings and pamper nights. I also give advice on health diet and nutrition and am qualified in Indian Head Massage and Henna Art. I'm constantly busy working on new ideas to help all you gorgeous goddesses!
