About the Teachers
The Bellydance Kizmet team offers classes in a friendly environment with the aim of passing on our immense love of bellydance in a way that is educational and respectful, yet still maintains a sense of fun. All of our teachers regularly attend professional development courses including teacher training, safe dance practice and workshops with local, interstate and international master teachers. Bellydance Kizmet is directed by Barbara Wolfkamp who has been studying this dance form for 20 years and travels to Egypt every year for ongoing training with some of the leading bellydance teachers and performers in the world. This is to ensure that Bellydance Kizmet is always at the forefront of the current styles and techniques in Oriental Dance
Barbara has been teaching and performing belly dance for almost 20 years. A well-established dancer in Melbourne, Barbara often travels interstate and overseas for teaching and study and regularly takes workshops with the great names of Middle Eastern Dance.

Barbara has a special interest in the many folkloric forms of the dance from all over the Middle East, bringing a wealth of knowledge of the history, techniques and different styles of belly dance.
