Tribal dancer Shanne is based in Brisbane and is part of the Opalesque dance troupe with Erin, Kelly and Jodi. Like many tribal belly dancers, she’s inspired by the spiritual aspects of the dance and the unique connection between women participating in a dance.
Shanne is also the principal of SpiralBody Belly Dance, which offers Brisbane’s only Tribal Fusion classes at Wooloongabba.
I’m always pleased to hear of bellydance teachers like Shanne who have a background in education. Many bellydancers transition from performing to teaching with no formal teacher training, and there’s always a risk that safety is overlooked, or classes are disorganized. Shanne’s background means she’s been able to develop a well-structured course with an emphasis on safety and technique, while still being upbeat and enjoyable.
