A pleasure that lifts the spirit
After a year of Navel Gazers belly dance classes I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with Melusina as a teacher. Her ability to skillfully explain techniques combined with her warmth and humour make every class a pleasure that lifts the spirit. She has total empathy for every student’s level and confidence in their dancing. She corrects us very considerately and clearly loves to see us improve. I have had dozens of dance teachers in other styles over decades and Mel is outstanding among them as well as being a beautiful dancer and soul.
Melusina’s teaching style is fun, professional and thorough
Melusina’s teaching style is fun, professional and thorough. Melusina is so committed to her school, she puts on concerts twice a year which are so magical and a wonderful way to demonstrate all we have learned through the year. My dance class is often one of my favourite times of the week and I’m so grateful for all that Melusina does to make this possible.
Mel is a fantastic teacher
I’ve been dancing with Melusina at Navel Gazers for at least 3 years now and I cannot rate the classes high enough. Mel is a fantastic teacher who not only has helped me to rebuild confidence in my dancing abilities but has also pushed me outside of my comfort zones in the most supportive and loving ways possible so I can reach my potential every time..! Thank you Mel!
I keep going back.
I have done two terms of belly dancing with Mel, and I found her an absolute gem. Informative, positive and an all-round great teacher. I have done a couple of different classes with different teachers over the years, and I really love her classes. I keep going back. What more is there to say!
A welcoming and fun space
I’ve just finished my first term of tribal fusion with Melusina and I feel like I’ve already learnt so much, I absolutely love it! Mel is a talented, thorough and captivating teacher and I’m so excited to continue dancing with her and this tribe. Can’t wait to work my way through the levels as I’m happy to have found a welcoming and fun space to sink in and learn this beautiful art form. Big love!
I love Navel Gazers Belly Dance!! Mel is such a beautiful natural teacher and person, it’s a joy to learn from her! Her classes are fun and relaxed, and with lots of variety. As well as dance, she’s always sharing interesting bits of the history of belly dance. Highly recommended!
Mel is a master and an inspiration.
Highly recommend Navel Gazers! Mel is a master and an inspiration. As a student I always feel at ease and well-supported, and I am constantly learning new things. There is a lot of variety and Mel puts much thought into teaching us both the techniques and the theory. The classes are great fun and I leave each time feeling brighter and more energetic.
Inspired and empowered.
I have been attending Navel Gazers Dance classes for a few years now and I am always learning something new. I felt welcomed from the first class and always have a lot of fun. As a dancer of some years I look for a challenge, professionalism and safety in dance classes and Melusina delivers. I walk away from every class inspired and empowered.
I always leave class happy!
I have been having classes with Mel for about a year. I’ve always loved dancing, but never thought I was coordinated enough. Mel is great at breaking the moves down and building everyone’s skills. I always leave class happy!
An exceptional teacher
I’ve been dancing with Mel for around 12 years now!!! She is an exceptional teacher, stunning performer and total legend of a woman!! I can’t recommend classes at Navel Gazers enough!!! 12 years and still coming back doesn’t lie!
