Finding a Teacher
We have had a number of queries regarding finding teachers here in the UK. There are a number of associations who have member teachers and this is one way to go. I hope students nderstand that it is difficult for dancers to pass judgement on the teaching skills of individuals for obvious reasons. And in any case the teaching style of one teacher may suit a student and another not.
So try these links and feel free anyone who knows of similar:
Jwaad Diploma teachers:
Bellydance Classes - Find a Teacher
OD's own listing:
Belly Dance Classes in United Kingdom
Northern Arabic Dance Association member/teachers:
Welcome to NADA - Northern Arabic Dance Association
The Raqs Sharki society: they don't list members but they would recommend I am sure.
The Raqs Sharqi Society
ASMED trained teachers:
ASMED Teachers and classes
Not all teachers but you can't beat Shira for information of any kind to do with bellydance;DVDs,costumes, you name it

May I suggest renaming this thread from "Findng a Teacher" to "Finding a Teacher in the UK" ?
I was hoping that people would follow on for their countries....

Should we make it a "sticky"?
Edit: It is a sticky now.

thanks for putting together listing of teachers
Hi, Wanted to thank you (even though I am not UK) for posting sites that offer teaching there and those like Shira, who pain-stakingly put together those listing for us
You can find list of Belly dance teacher at Belly Dance Finder: http:/www.bellydancefinder.com
I have a friend who lives on the Isle of Wight I would like to recomend a teacher to. I check the links given above but since I'm not that familiar with England it just made my head hurt. Is there anyone nearby I could recomend in good concious to her? She has never bellydanced but does have a degree in dance and really misses it since graduating.
