"“What I loved the most was how caring about the students the teachers were and how generously they shared their knowledge. I loved that the information was not only theoretical but you were taught also how to put what you learned into practice”"

L1 Teaching - Melinda Kovacs

""The course helped me highlight how I need to grow as a dancer but also that teaching isn’t just about being a good dancer. All the scenarios presented really helped in raising my confidence”
"I had lots of personal growth”"

Level 1 Teaching - Jen Woodhead

"It was a really good course, more intensive than I expected, and... having completed it I feel much more confident about setting up lessons. "

Level 1 teaching - Karen Harrison

".....I appreciate how much work goes into organising and presenting the course and supporting the students! I feel very confident and proud of the standard of teaching and dancing and am pleased to be your student..."

Music Course - Catriona MacDonald

"Very interesting and exciting course, learned different styles of Bellydance and gained knowledge about the evolution from the time of the Pharaohs to the present day. "

History and Culture Course - Sarah Soo Yin Chua

"There was a lot of the course that was applicable to Tribal. It was supportive and I certainly feel more confident delivering workshops having completed it and I have definitely integrated the learning from the weekend within the workshops."

Level 1 Teaching - Tribal Perspective - Jenny D'Allison

"Inspirational, enlightening, challenging, but in the end, a great confidence booster."

Music course - Jill Karstad

""I really enjoyed the Anatomy part, because it’s good to know what you’re actually doing and which muscles you’re working with each move”"

Level 1 Teaching - Wanshu Walsh
