Estelle is a highly experienced Belly Dancer from Australia.

Estelle studied many different versions of the dance, she has danced in seven countries, appeared on many television shows, from The Midday Show in Sydney to The Beat Takashi show in Japan, she has also appeared in feature films and danced on the some of the best stages in the world today.

Estelle has studied Ancient Egyptian dance hieroglyphics and formed the basis of her interpretation of the Beledi form, and practiced the style that she believes is “… the closest form of the dance to date. In ancient Egypt Belly Dance was a ceremonial dance that was performed with a spiritual perspective as well as an erotic one. This kind of innate understanding of the dance is key to tapping into primal femininity that unconsciously will guide the dancer with true inspiration”. Estelle has studied other forms of dance as well, such as African, Modern Dance, Ballet and even Jazz Ballet, but she always returns to her main path, that of Beledi. “After understanding other dance forms gives a dancer a true understanding of where it all came from, some say it was Africa, I believe it was Egypt” Estelle has written articles on the health aspects of the dance in magazines such as, Cosmopolitan, WellBeing, Women’s Spirit, Nature and Health and many more. The health aspects are overwhelming in fact but to me one of the most important aspect of the dance is the spiritual component.

Egyptian belly-dance is one of the best ways to loose weight and attain a high degree of health and fitness without straining the body. It may look as though only the lower half of the body is getting a workout, but in fact the whole body and internal organs all benefit.

Belly dancing utilises body fat faster than any other exercise.
