"Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health - it rusts your spirit and your hips." - Terri Guillemets

Summer workshops are a great way for you to learn something new, give bellydancing a try, or just keep up your practice over the break.

Everyone is welcome to register for Summer Workshops and Events - you don't need to be a regular Ghawazee Moon student to come along. Our teachers are drawn from Canberra bellydancrs and musicians in recognition of the high quality of teaching and variety of expertise in our region - so if you're learning bellydance in Canberra, you'll likley see a teacher from your school in the line up!

The end of summer Hafla and Market is a great way to get in some social dancing, join the live music Jam, maybe even perform some combos or choreographies you have learnt during the workshops. You can also grab yourself some new or pre-loved bellydance costumes, props & accessories before Term 1 begins.

This year we have an additional special event, the Summer Nights Cabaret! This is a fabulous opportunity to see all of your amazing workshop teachers in action! Due to loading restrictions, tickets are pre-purchase only - there will be none available at the door. You can purchase tickets via the Events page, or grab them when signing up for workshops using the form below.

> Please check the Workshop Descriptions before registering.
