Imagine waking up feeling excited, inspired, knowing you are living the life you are meant to, with total clarity on who you are, while expressing your unique blueprint as a dancer. You no longer feel held back and have learnt how to tap into your creative flow, which makes you feel like nothing else matters....This is the intention behind my latest offering!
I am SO excited to launch my new online membership, which is a space where all of my courses that I have created over the years (PLUS new work!) will be all in one spot!
The bellydance blueprint Temple Space inspires fusion bellydancers and teachers who want a guaranteed formula to craft choreography, and to tap into trance flow states. I help dancers unlock their creative flow and fall in love with "process" which develops mastery fast!
It provides a step by step process to diversify your movement vocabulary and harness the healing power of trance states through strategies, lessons and ancient exercises.
Unlike other courses that teach their own style and combos, i teach a blueprint that guides you to feel confident in creating your own authentic powerful work and I have been on this mission of empowering dancers for over 15 years.
To feel satisfied as dancers (and people) it is vital to feel PASSION with what we are doing, to feel completely in alignment with our PURPOSE and able to harness the FLOW state (which is how our artistic expression feels effortless and magical).
This membership platform will have two components, firstly the fusion bellydance lessons PLUS The Passion, purpose & Flow videos and audios, that will offer practical and insightful ways to:
- Release blocks that hold you back
- Reprogram old limiting beliefs
- Know when ‘your on purpose’
- Exercises and simple practices that will release stagnant energy and allow you to move forward with what you are here to do!
Firstly lets look at what you get as soon as you sign up!
- The Art of Tribal Belly Dance, steps and combinations of BOTH volume 1 & 2. It is from this material that inspired The Bellydance Blueprint Formula! Normally valued at $32USD with 3 hours of video!
- The first ‘Ingredients’ video from the Bellydance Blueprint Formula (Arm poses, arm patterns, turns, foot positions)
- Part One and part two of Muscle isolations with step by step instruction
- Drill videos for all muscle isolations covered in the formula
- An introduction to the Bellydance Blueprint Formula, where i explain how the process works
- Six hours of lessons to get you started 😉

What type of content can I expect to see?

- Body Balance videos: Qi Gong, Japanese meridian exercises and pilates based strengthening exercises for postural stamina

Audio and video covering a range of topics, exercises and processes to:
- Understand the flow state and how to train yourself to experience this highly productive and rewarding way of being
- Help activate your passion so you feel inspired to live 'on purpose'
- Step into living a life that feels aligned with who you are, rather than what society or others ‘think’ you should be. When you choose to do this, your life completely transforms!
- Releasing resistance so you can step into flow more easily and become more present in the creative process.
I have found that my dance life is not separate from other areas of my life, and every aspect of our being influences our expression, our blocks, creative flow, emotions, ability to focus and discipline as dancers. By working not only on technique (or choreo) but also our "inner" selves, we can unlock a wellspring of inspiration, passion and joy!
This intensive program will transform your perception as a creative belly dancer!
The Bellydance Blueprint aims to provide a thorough understanding of good body mechanics and muscular understanding and how it directly relates to the core of Middle Eastern Dance movement and Tribal Fusion Belly Dance.
I started creating this format back in 2012/13. My aim is to empower dancers to find their own style and to tap into the joy of creating their own work that feels alive! I believe that the process of creating your own work that feels authentic and aligned with who you are, is the key to feeling empowered, fulfilled and consistently inspired, which is the key to maintaining regular practice.
The teaching methodology has been developed as a result of 12 years experience in American Tribal Style Belly Dance (certified ATS teacher), Tribal Fusion as well as incorporating key concepts from Classical belly dance and Classical Indian Dance (Bharatanatyam).
What level dancer are the lessons designed for?
There are Two levels to The BellyDance BluePrint. Dancers of any level will find value in the training. I will be including beginner technique videos in the near future!
Can i teach the format/formula
I am happy for you to teach ‘some’ concepts from the formula (with credit given), however if you would like to teach the entire BluePrint, teacher training is the next step for you. You will need to have completed Level One prior to teacher training. Please check out the teacher training link in the main menu.
Is the Bellydance Blueprint designed for only tribal fusion dancers?
The style is mostly influenced by tribal fusion, however you can easily apply the concepts to oriental style. A previous oriental student mentioned that she incorporated her own oriental “ingredients” and applied the process, and she found it to be a fantastic approach.
How long will it take for me to complete the Bellydance blueprint
If you choose to subscribe to the membership option, 2-3 lessons will be uploaded per month. If you are a more advanced dancer and would like to finish the process quickly, i suggest purchasing the entire course in full. You can later subscribe to the membership platform as new work is uploaded as well as the new component: Passion, purpose and flow lessons.
How do i access the course?
Once payment has been processed you will be emailed information on username and password to access the course. After logging in, you will be in a private ‘membership’ site where all videos are available in an easy format.
Can i unsubscribe any time?

It's very helpful and I feel I am already beginning to get inspiration as to how I can structure my own personal practice in terms of developing my own dance vocabulary.
