Belly Dance Classes in Delft, Rotterdam, and online!
COVID-19 Outbreak Update: Social distancing measures have been extended by the Dutch Government. This means no in-studio classes until June 1 at the earliest. However, Greenstone Belly Dance has already taken the plunge into live, interactive, online classes. And we are getting better every time! I’m doing my best to research and invest into new technologies to give you fabulous audio, a great picture, and of course, a great time dancing! See the timezones, schedule and registration details below.
Do you want to learn something new, step out of your comfort zone, get in touch with your core muscles and have a whole lot of fun doing it? Or maybe you’re a dancer with a few hip drops under her coin belt, and you’d like to take your technique and performance skills to the next level? Come and learn belly dance at one of our group classes!

Greenstone Belly Dance Class Testimonials
“Whether you are a beginner in oriental dance or an experienced performer or anything in between, I highly recommend Siobhan as a teacher. Her technique is excellent, her class structure and instruction is easy to follow, her choreographies are rich, and she is exceptionally warm, energetic and patient with her students. If you have questions about technique, alignment or posture she is well-qualified to help you make sure you are moving safely. I also really enjoy her selection of traditional/folkloric bellydance music, and how she guides her students in interpreting the nuances of meaning and emotion in the songs. In short, Siobhan has everything I could wish for in a dance teacher.”
