Unlock your inner power and grace!
A step by step belly dance blueprint that teaches you the art of tribal fusion, helping you to unlock creativity, develop mastery and step into flow!
The bellydance blueprint inspires fusion bellydancers and teachers (and beginners!) who want a step by step process to craft choreography and add more grace to their movement. I help dancers unlock their creativity and develop mastery of skills.
It provides a process to diversify your movement vocabulary, by creating new neural pathways (muscle memory) through layering exercises using the entire body! Unlike other courses that teach their own style and combos, i teach a not only technique (and combos) but also a blueprint that guides you to feel confident in creating your own authentic powerful work and I've have been on this mission of empowering dancers for over 15 years.
This intensive program will transform your perception as a creative belly dancer!
The teaching methodology has been developed as a result of 13 years experience in ATS (certified ATS teacher), Tribal Fusion as well as incorporating key concepts from Classical belly dance and Classical Indian Dance (Bharatanatyam). After releasing one of Australia's first tribal bellydance DVD series, I have helped thousands of women all over the world develop and learn holistic approaches to their practice.
How it all works
The Bellydance Blueprint "ingredients"
The first videos include all of the bellydance blueprint Foundations or "ingredients": If you are a beginner, these foundations are what you will be focusing before moving on to the layering exercsies.
- Muscle isolations
- Arm patterns and poses
- Foot patterns
- Foot positions
- Stage directions
The Focus Elements
To express varied pieces of music, it's important to develop diversity in your movement vocabulary, this is where the Focus elements come in!
You will then learn The five focus elements and how to create your own. These include:
- Muscle Focus
- Shape Focus
- Turn Focus
- Shimmy Focus
- Travel Focus
The Challenge sections
At the end of each Focus Element video, there are some challenges (or homework) for dancers to complete that assists in integrating the material they have just learnt! (which is optional)
**If you wish to recieve a certificate of certification for completing the course, you will be required to send me links (or tag me on social media) from your Challenge homework for each Focus Element. Please email me for more information on this.
Easily accessible online videos to view at any time
All of the HD videos are hosted on the Vimeo platform on a secure membership site that you will have access to any time you like- for life!
Level One & Level Two
There are two levels to the Blueprint, level one and level two. The main differences are that level two includes more arm patterns and foot patterns and is more challenging. Teacher training (online and in person) is also available, so please contact me for more info.
The Blueprint Layer cards
A 'layer card' template will be provided that allows dancers to create their own 'Bellydance blueprint layer card deck'. These layer cards are a fantastic way to add fun, unpredictability in your practice and a useful tool to unlock creative energy when feeling stuck.

What level dancer are the lessons designed for?
There are Two levels to The Bellydance Blueprint. Dancers at any level will find value in the training. If you are a beginner, You will need to focus on the Foundations (or ingredients) until you feel ready to start layering and adding a little more complexity.
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 course 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.
Is there a set time frame the course goes for?
No. The beauty of the course is that you can go at your own pace, with access to the videos for life (with no ongoing monthly fees). For those who like a bit of structure, i will be posting weekly videos on the main membership page that students can follow along with.
How do i access the course, are videos downloadable?
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. You will need internet connection to view videos and they are currently not downloadable. There is 18 hours of footage, so I’m looking at creating downloadable options further down the track if people are keen for it!
Is there a payment plan?
Please email me if you would like to make payment in a few instalments.
What others have been saying...
"I'm really enjoying working through the blueprint! 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. I have completed the level one muscle focus and have completed my first challenge. I would like to take the blueprint certificate and I am also interested in teacher training!"Jasmine
"I am in the process of healing my life long trauma and have not been able to dance because of self worth issues. However since starting Bellydance Blueprint has ignited something personal in me to want to keep going"Mary
"I lurved Acushla's Blueprint workshops! It got me more 'in my head' creatively- which i was reluctant to do cos i thought creativity should come from the heart and soul, not he mind...but i was wrong! (it flows from all three!) : ) The process in this training helped me expand my creativity- and they still do! Totes recommend!!!"Liyana

"I just completed the first two ingredients videos, and I'm loving it so far! I've always needed work with my arms and footwork!”Marrianne
“Special thanks to Acushla, what a wonderful course and I just love the finishing touches to my choreo today”Naomi
5 stars “Thoroughly enjoyed the bellydance blue print intensive. It was very clear & very valuable for learning to choreograph as well as highlighting your strengths and weaknesses. Acushla was fantastic! Thank you very much :)”Jarna
“The Blueprint formula has given me more tools and pushes me to learn and grow”
I definately gravitate towards smooth hip movements, like all directions of figure 8s, and other hip and belly movements that fuse nicely with them. But like with too much of anything, that becomes less interesting to watch, and is also not good for my body or creativity expansion within dance. This is one reason why I loved the blueprint formula; the multiple random combos one can create that inspires new ways to move.
