About Belly Dancer Diaries

Hi Shimmy Shaker! Thank you for stopping by.

My name is Elisa and I am a professional belly dancer. I have been dancing professionally for over a decade and started Belly Dancer Diaries about two years ago. I am also a qualified personal trainer.

Belly Dancer Diaries is full of technique tutorials, workouts and inspiration all about belly dancing.Together we share our love of this beautiful art form.

I started this Patreon page so that I can put even more energy into creating specific videos that you guys have been requesting.  Every dollar helps me to be an independent artist and for us to share our passion of belly dance. Thank you, really. It means an incredible amount to have your encouragement and support.

For those wanting to learn a full choreography, I have beautiful lessons for you to perfect a full routine. You can do it as a solo, a duet or as a group. I break it down into specific parts with:
  • technique videos
  • a break down of choreography
  • a run through with music and voice prompts
  • and a run through just with the music.
You can also access the music and choreography notes, so however you learn best, I will have you covered.

Thanks so much for your continued encouragement and support. It really does mean a lot.

Happy dancing! 💃✨🎉

Elisa ❤❤❤

Reaching this level would really take Belly Dancer Diaries to a professional level. I will be able to hire help of a talented production team to give the highest quality videos in beautiful locations with specific lessons for all levels and genres.
