What can I expect from this online course?
The words "belly dancing" conjure up images of the exotic: Of far-off places filled with mystery and adventure, of colourful sites, zesty smells, beautiful women, and mysterious men. But this is only one facet of this beautiful and exciting dance. The real adventure is a far more personal one: one that is available to almost every woman who is willing to explore the beauty and mystery that is within them.
Allow me to guide you in your adventure. To help you to explore this amazing path of empowering self-discovery.
I discovered belly dancing many years ago, simply by chance. I was looking for an interesting form of exercise but instead, I found so much more. I soon realised that I had stumbled upon a wonderful exciting means of self-expression and discovery. Since then I have studied belly dance in many parts of the world with many top performers and teachers. And with each new-found insight, my belief in the art is reinforced.
My deep appreciation for the art of Oriental dance has so clearly allowed me to see that an artistic sensual expression can be so much more powerful and gracious than a more provocative and sexual display.
This video course is aimed at women who are not yet ready or able to attend a face-to-face belly dance class, but who are nevertheless determined to introduce fun, glitter, glamour and self-discovery into their lives. I will guide you through the basics of this amazing art, drawing on my many years of teaching experience to do so.
There is, however, one important requirement: you must be willing to have heaps of fun!
Belly dancers and belly dancing enthusiasts will need to go far to find a performer and teacher as skilled and experienced as Charlotte. In fact, you’ll need to go all the way to Egypt. Charlotte is one of a small handful of South Africans with Egyptian acknowledgement as a teacher and performer of the art form.
Not to mention the international accolades she’s picked up during her over twenty years of belly dancing experience. But for Charlotte, Belly dancing isn’t just a dream. It’s her passion. She doesn’t just teach it – she embodies it.
When Charlotte first stumbled across the art of Belly Dancing in 1989, she thought it might be a more interesting alternative to gym or jogging. So this shy and self-conscious accountant decided to investigate this “daring option”, and very soon she found herself dancing professionally.
It wasn’t long before Charlotte was approached by an Egyptian owned company and offered a sponsorship to travel and explore her newfound passion in the land of its origin. She returned from Egypt invigorated and eager to share her insights with a fledgeling South African belly dance community. In 1997, she opened the renowned Jewels of the Nile dancing studio (1997-2011). In the year 2000, Charlotte and three of her dancers won two gold medals and a trophy at the World Performing Arts Championships in Los Angeles.
But it’s not just Charlotte’s training, experience and passion for the art form that sets her apart from the rest. She believes in a life of Authenticity, and doesn’t believe in creating clones of herself – she wants each and every belly dance student to develop and blossom into a beautiful dancing goddess in her own right.
The students, teachers and professional dancers are taught to dance from their souls and thereby express a pure feminine energy. Charlotte also does not promote the art form as a dance of seduction and is very clear in her intentions when teaching and expressing the dance. She has faced much adversity and many challenges as a result of her views and strict code of conduct as a teacher and professional performer over the years.
Charlotte’s holistic approach to life and dancing has also lead her to be successfully trained and qualified as Reiki Master (Ursui, Eastern lineage), Aromatherapist, Reflexologist; Karuna Reiki, Kundalini Yoga Teacher and in Indian Head massage. She also obtained a CIS (Honours) degree in Corporate Governance and is an ICF (International Coach Federation) Credentialed Life and Business Coach. Apart from dance instruction, Charlotte also runs Wellness and Self Empowerment workshops, including body-mind awareness, BBBrobics, and various workshops including topics like Self Confidence, Values of Sensuality vs/& Sexuality, sometimes using her dancing as part of the basic tools. She has researched dance and movement therapy to gain a greater understanding of the amazing healing features of so many of the movements that are found in belly dancing.
