Hi, welcome to the Baubo website, my name is Guinevere. I am a Belly Dance teacher, performer, choreographer and writer with over 20 years of experience. I co-created The Belly Dancer’s Treasure Pack – a handy sized resource book and gorgeous set of illustrated cards to empower your belly dance journey!

I am qualified to and love to teach Keti Sharif’s Original and Advanced A-Z Belly Dance systems. I’ve studied belly dance in the UK, Cairo and Istanbul with a range of practitioners and hold certificates in Delivering Learning and a First Class BA Honours Degree in Creative Arts (Physical Theatre, Live Arts, Creative Writing). I developed the first Welsh academic Belly Dance Course with the Open College Network (Agored Cymru) and have assisted many women in developing and maintaining their belly dance practice, formally and informally.  Festivals that have hosted me include; the Western Australian Middle Eastern Dance Festival, UK’s Majma and Nozstock Festival, The Big Cwtch and Drum Camp Wales among many more.

The joy and benefits that belly dance brings to myself and others keeps inspiring my practice and creativity within this magical art. Originally, I started belly dance as a way to ease back pain from my nursing work. I found it so beneficial that it was a natural progression to increase my practice and then engage in extensive technique and teacher training. I ran successful classes and residential workshops for many years in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. In 2010 I helped set up a Community Interest Company to extend the benefits of belly dance into West Wales with some astounding community projects that received European Union and National Lottery funding.

I find belly dance to be deeply personally renewing. Following the birth of my son, belly dance helped to support my own mind, body and spiritual health. Over the years the dance has stepped in as a creative release, physical toner and way to improve community networks, belonging and wider connections.  There is not one belly dance class that I teach or show that I do or watch that has not on some level been profoundly enriching. I love it and I love sharing belly dance and all of its potential.

I am now evolving The Belly Dancer’s Treasure Pack into a series of easy to learn themed dance sequences and am excited to be sharing that with you soon as – The Belly Dancer’s Treasure Trove.
