Private Lessons

I currently offer private lessons both online via Zoom, and from my home studio in Didsbury, South Manchester.

One-to-one coaching is one of the most effective ways to improve your dancing, once you’ve got a good grasp of the basics at your weekly bellydance classes!

In a private lesson, I can give you far more personalised feedback, attention and advice than is possible in a group class. Private lessons are a great option if…

  • You want to raise the level of your dancing, with tuition tailored to your unique strengths and learning style
  • You’d love to study a certain dance style, prop or musical genre in depth
  • You’d like support and guidance as you prepare to dance your first solo
  • You’re working on a performance piece, and would like input and feedback from an experienced dancer

Both online and in-person private lessons are £30 per hour. I offer 30 minute and 1 hour sessions on Zoom, and 1 hour or 2 hour sessions in person. You can schedule and book a lesson at a time that suits you using my online booking system.

“I have private lessons with Rachael once a month and I always look forward to them. Rachael makes sure each lesson is engaging, challenging and fun and I always leave feeling that I’ve made a lot of progress.

Rachael is a thoughtful teacher who has a keen eye for spotting any areas of difficulty and teaching the correct technique in a way that feels manageable.

Rachael’s methods of teaching are just as accessible in her workshops, which are centred around creating a sense of community and finding real enjoyment in the dance, music and its cultural roots.” – Natasha, Manchester
