Bio: Guinevere has studied and practiced A-Z Belly Dance since 2003 after seeking more to share with her students and nourish the growing interest in Belly Dance in West Wales. She started dancing in 1994 during her Registered General Nurse training with Jaqueline Chapman in London and was inspired by its capacity to ease back pain, lift mood and develop positive networks. Her deep journey of healing with Belly Dance for herself and others lead to the formation of 'The Belly Dancer's Treasure Pack.'
Guinevere has studied at BA Degree level in Physical Theatre and Live Arts. She has done courses with Hossam and Serena Ramzy and enjoyed learning with Ozgen, Paola Blanton and many other influential teachers. Guinevere co-developed a Community Interest Company which ran for several years in Pembrokeshire, helping to expand Belly Dance into community settings and she wrote the first ever acredited academic module in Belly Dance in Wales with Agored Cymru. Her work has been embraced by The Arts Council of Wales and The European Social Fund among many other educational, social, private and leisure organisations.
