About Us

Welcome to Belly Dance Amethyst!

As one of Australia’s premier belly dance schools, we exist to educate, inspire and delight students and audiences alike through the medium of dance.

We offer quality, fun and friendly tuition in belly dance (aka oriental dance or raqs sharqi). Alongside classical Egyptian and Turkish styles, we also specialise in other genres of belly dance including fusion, tribal and folkloric styles, as well as classes in drumming, fitness and children’s classes. So whatever flavour of belly dance you prefer, we have a class for you. For those wanting to take their dance to another level, we also offer coaching on costuming and stage presence.

Our centrally located, spacious and modern studio in Adelaide is easily accessible with free, easy parking. We also conduct a range of classes at our satellite studios in Bridgewater and Parafield Gardens.

Established by Myra Fallon in 2009, Belly Dance Amethyst has a reputation as one of Australia's leading schools of Belly Dance. As a pioneer of this dance form since 1986, Myra is credited with introducing tribal style belly dance to Adelaide and South Australia through her intensive studies.

As of 2017, Belly Dance Amethyst is co-directed by Gülten and Claire who, like all our teachers and performers, bring their unique heritage and experience to the school. Gülten's Turkish heritage brings first hand cultural knowledge to her directorial role, while Claire’s arts education and varied dance experience underpins her deep aesthetic understanding. Similarly, our other instructors and performers come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and bring a wealth of cultural, artistic and dance experience to their classes.

Belly dance is our passion and we love sharing it!
