Francesca De Sica

I have had a few belly dance teachers before but Melissa completely changed the way I felt about myself and the way I dance! Since joining I have lost weight, toned up and become much more confident within myself. She is an inspiration and helps each of us find our inner beauty and bring that to the way we dance! Most of all, a class with Melissa is always guaranteed to be fun, fun, fun!

Martha Lucia Gonzalez

Melissa’s classes are always energizing and fun – you are guaranteed to start smiling as soon as you walk in! She is a very warm and generous teacher, sharing her passion for dancing with all her students. Melissa is also one of those dance teachers who can break down any move and make a routine accessible even to beginner students.

About Me:

Melissa Belly Dance is an amazing and gifted dance artist, teacher and development coach, specialising in dance courses, workshops and private lessons. She has worked on BBC TV Shows (including Strictly Come Dancing),  many music award shows and of course YouTube.

In my approach I combine dance and feminine movement with peak performance, health, and sports psychology. I have fine tuned this for belly dance classes online or for belly dance classes in my London based studio

I am known for my great ability to adapt my teaching methods to many different learning styles while making them fun, safe and technically correct.   Belly dance classes are a great challenge, builds your fitness, tones you up, improves your confidence and is very empowering.

I believe that meaningful change happens over time, with consistency and positive reinforcement, along with enjoyment and personal support.  My courses reflect this investment in yourself and are structured in once-a-week 12 week courses that build on your progress and reflect your own commitment to a “best version of you”.  I believe health and fitness is not a fad or a drop in session

My passion is to coach and mentor students  through belly dance and fusion dance, helping them to excel, using my personal methodology and philosophies. I have over 20 years of experience, working with people from all walks of life and cultures, girl bands, singers, dancers and artists through uniquely tailored programmes, courses, workshops, lessons, classes and 1:1 coaching online and in person.
