Katie is coined ‘The Mermaid’ for her ‘fish’ like & watery performance style and she is highly influenced by art & holistic therapeutics.

“Our bodies are an accumulation of past actions, emotions, thoughts and experiences. I see Dance & Yoga as a way to re-pattern our bodies and minds from past conditioning. Through mindful practice we can replace our old habits with a healthier and more peaceful way of being.”

    Hi, I am looking for belly dance classes in Plymouth or the surrounding area. I was wondering if you are taking any.

      Hi Georgie,

      I will be setting up classes in Plymouth once my Dance Leadership certificate is finished. I am currently organizing 5 free one hour sessions at my home if you are interested in that first? Dates and times are being discussed but you’d have to be committed to the 5 sessions so that on the last session my tutor from the Dance Leadership course can grade me 🙂 If you have facebook you can add yourself to my group called Beauty Beats Belly dance and the link is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/563825927073696/
