There are many Belly Dance Teachers teaching classes around the world. Many of them are fantastic and inspiring teachers, with all sorts of backgrounds and previous experience.
Belly dance teachers all have their own individual style and approach to teaching. It is important to find a teacher that matches what you are after from a class and what you want to learn. The best way to do that is to try different teachers and talk to other students about the classes they go to.

A teacher that is engaged with the dance community, sharing knowledge and experience with other teachers in a collaberative way.
A teacher that has made a commitment to continuing their own learning, both in terms of dancing, teaching and health and safety.
A teacher that has made a commitment to deal with students, other dancers and teachers in an honourable and ethical way.
A teacher that has committed to not pretend to be an expert in areas where they have only limited knowledge and will be honest with their students as to the service they are providing.
A teacher that will encourage you to study with other teachers when they think this is appropriate to your development as a dancer.
