Phoenix Belly Dance is a multi-award-winning entertainment company and dance troupe based in Auckland, New Zealand. We love sharing the art of Middle Eastern dance through our classes, workshops, and performances that fuse contemporary concepts with the traditional roots of belly dance. Candice Frankland, the Director, has had the privilege of performing and teaching overseas, and has been working hard at growing the community and elevating belly dance in New Zealand to be taken as a serious dance form through extraordinary performances, theatre shows, collaborative projects, hosting international teachers and the annual Weekend Belly Dance Retreat.
Our vision is to develop and encourage participation by women and young girls of all walks of life to take part in the art of belly dance by providing regular classes, workshops, and performance opportunities. The relationships developed within the belly dance community, which include students of all ages and abilities, families, performers and teachers, are a vital influence on the success of this growing art form, and are life-changing for those who experience these bonds of friendship. Therefore, our mission is to promote a fun learning environment and supportive performance demonstrations, with pride, passion, and grace.
Belly Dancing is a form of exercise with graceful dance moves and beautiful feminine creativity based on the folkloric and performance dance styles of the Middle East. It’s a great way to get fit, flexible, confident and work every muscle in your body while having fun!
Belly dancing is for all women of any age, size or fitness level and no experience in any dance form is necessary! You can join at any time, so feel free to drop in at any of our classes all over Auckland.
Our classes are focused on the education of the technical movements, history and culture of the various modern and folkloric styles of the Middle East as well as fusion elements to give students a holistic experience that is all together challenging, fun, and rewarding.
