Workshops and performances for many different occasions! Hen nights, birthdays, family (sister) gatherings, schools and companies.

Years of experience with both large and small groups, young and old!

As a guest teacher I gave a series of lessons at the Rijnijssel school for intermediate vocational education in Arnhem (MBO Dance Rijnijssel).

You could also contact me about the costs if you and your dance group would like to use one of the options below.

Gypsy dance

Depends on the country of origin.

You will learn typical gypsy steps and moves: gypsyfire!

Within the gypsy dance there are some styles that are very suitable for both men and women.!

Balkans gypsy style ~ goes very well at parties!

Indian gypsy dance ~ whirling dance from Rajasthan

Turkish gypsy dance ~ jolly and playful

Russian gypsy dance ~ flowing skirts and full of passion

Hungarian gypsy dance ~ frantic footwork

Romanian gypsy dance ~ Transylvanian and Mahala (related to belly dance) style!

Egyptian gypsy dance ~ earthy and robust with a lot of shimmies

Belly dance

A great way of moving, in which femininity is central. In this workshop you will learn snakelike movements and several shimmies (the shaking of shoulders and hips).


In this workshop you will learn a simple choreography from a well-known Bollywood movie! And also a very special bridal dance from the Punjab the Ghidda!

Tahitian dance

A very special dance style! Super-fast hips and when we are tired, we will continue with the elegant gestures.

Children’s parties

Specially adapted to the age, ending with a performance for the parents!

After every workshop the birthday girl/boy receives a CD and a booklet as a keepsake. He or she also gets to wear a nice costume during the performance. The other participants will be provided with a skirt and/or a hip scarf to wear.
