Current classes are as follows:
Romani styles are taught by Margaret. Some dances are taught in regular class time, others are taught in extra classes and workshops scheduled in March to July in preparation for the Abbey Medieval Fayre. It is possible to take part in all Romani based festivals and performances without necessarily having to take regular Oriental classes. Please contact Margaret to discuss your participation.
Beginner classes are launched as an Introductory Course every February and July. These courses are foundational to both the Romani Gypsy and Oriental styles. Please contact Emily to book in for the next available Introductory Course.
Adult ballet classes are run by Michelle Laurenson. Please visit the Sirène website to enquire and book into classes.
American Tribal Style® (ATS®) evolved in San Francisco, USA and involves a blend of bellydance, gypsy (Ghawazee) traditions and Flamenco. It is danced as a tribe, and has cues built into the moves to enable people to follow a leader and exchange leadership. It has flourished as a style around the world and is now on offer in Petrie thanks to Soul Dance.
The drumming group meets roughly every three weeks (on a Sunday morning) with teacher Terry Ferguson from Gympie. Beginners welcome as are more advanced players. The group meets at Soul Dance Studio, Petrie from 9am to 11am. Please contact Terry for enquiries.
