With over 20 years’ study and 16 years’ teaching in Middle Eastern Dance and more than 3,000 shows under her belt, Ambyr Johnson must be one of the most experienced belly dancers performing in Australia today. Her dancing is informed by more than just belly dance training – she has studied ballet, contemporary, Bharata Natyam, flamenco, and Haitian Folkloric dance, and has a degree in Anthropology!
Originally trained in Australia and the USA, Ambyr began working professionally in London. She returned to Oz in 2000 and settled in Brisbane in 2003, where she became a teacher with the Academy of Middle Eastern Dance (Brisbane’s largest and longest running belly dance school).
Here is Ambyr performing at Ahmet’s restaurant in Brisbane, where she has been resident dancer for 9 years.
