Anam Cara in the Celtic language means 'soul friend'. It was believed that soul friendship develops through respect and acceptance of our own self and others. We believe that this can develop through the community spirit and connection made through improvisational dance.   We were first drawn to tribal style of belly dance by the earthiness and strong feminine energy which emerges as dancers connect with each other, moving in perfect harmony, enjoying dancing for themselves. It appeared so natural and beautifully hypnotic and we wanted to be part of that. We now continue to develop as dancers, teachers and performers sharing what we have learned with numerous professional dancers and teachers and teachers around the globe, through teaching and performing ourselves.. We teach weekly classes and create workshops and performances customised to your requirements.
