What if a few simple dance moves could completely shift your emotional state?
What if you could consistently have more positive attitudes like optimism, enthusiasm, passion, openness, certainty and confidence?
Hi, I'm Nneka
Bellydance Teacher & Performer
I am an oriental dance teacher and performer, and I empower women to love their bodies and own their feminine essence through bellydance.
I'm known for being patient, supportive and generous with my knowledge of Raqs Sharqui technique and styling.
My uplifting, wholistic approach lets you find your own dance while remaining true to the artform.
Over the years, I’ve interacted with hundreds of women who have used the mind-body connection in Bellydance to improve their wellbeing, and this is how their life has changed:
Their personal dance practise created a safe space where they could release emotional stress, recharge, reconnect with their true selves and acknowledge their path and purpose.
They had a set of wholistic tools that they could use to quickly bring themselves back into balance whenever they felt emotionally off-center.
They fell in love with their bodies and felt more gratitude, confidence and optimism.
Now you can too, with the Upbeat Live Online Masterclass.
UPBEAT LIVE ONLINE MASTERCLASS SERIES
My dance journey started overseas where I got a broad experience of what it means to be a bellydancer. Then I returned to Trinidad & Tobago and tried taking bellydance classes here.
I wasn’t happy with what I found. It felt competitive, and not in a good way.
Over the years I noticed that some studios only teach you the moves. Some don’t even teach. They just throw moves at you and it’s your business if you get it.
I don’t think that’s cool.
Not everyone is going to be a professional dancer, perfoming commercially.
Not everyone has a dance background and can pick up the moves right away.
But everyone can learn the fundamentals, enjoy its many benefits and be transformed by the experience.
The mission of Upbeat is simple… for you to experience bellydance in a way that meets you where you are, and enriches your spirit.
And so, I hope that Upbeat will improve your sense of wellbeing, whether you are a professional dancer, amateur or novice.
The dance I knew was about loving your body and finding yourself by exploring a foreign culture.
Along the way bellydance gave me many techniques that I could apply in my daily life to make me a more effective and integrated person (basically, more upbeat).
Let me show you the step-by-step process you will be following in this 4-part live online series.

Questions? I Have Answers!
Is this program suitable for beginners?
Yes, all Vibe Bellydance Masterclasses are taught as open-level. This means that different skill levels can participate in the class and depending on your level you will get something different out of it.
Am I too old/too young for this program?
It really depends on your level of fitness/mobility and attention span. If you have mobility issues or would like a child under 14 years of age to learn bellydance please contact me directly about special programs.
I have no coordination or dance skills. Is that okay?
There is another program you may want to try first that prepares your body to be more coordinated for dance. Really it’s just becoming aware of the muscles and strengthening them so you can use them on command. Please contact me directly about this.
Am I too fat/skinny for bellydance?
Bellydance is for every body. There are some moves, bellydance styles and costumes that look amazing on a larger frame while others are better on a smaller person. I help you find your dance. So if your doctor says it’s okay, you like bellydance and you think you can do it, then you should join the class.
Is this a slow or fast-paced class?
Moderate speed. It’s not a fitness class so you won’t be out of breath trying to keep up. It’s open skill-level so the moves are achieveable for most persons. But it is a Masterclass so the content proceeds in a dynamic way and you have to stay alert. The purpose is to help you advance your skills in a short time. For a more leisurely pace, try my on demand streaming classes. You may contact me directly about this.
What do I need to bring to class?
1. For online classes you should stream to a large monitor so you can see the movements properly. The screen on your phone or tablet is not big enough. You may want to use external speakers for a similar reason.
2. Find a space big enough to turn around in with an arm and a leg outstretched and not bump into anything. Try to make this space appealing so you feel good dancing in it. A mirror is useful to see yourself doing the moves.
3. A small notebook is helpful so you can remember what you did in the class for practise later.
4. Wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move around in, lets me see what your body is doing and also makes you look and feel beautiful. You don’t have to show you belly.
How can I reach you directly?
You can call or message Vibe Bellydance at (1868) 785-4897.
