Maria Morelli: Fitness class teacher, Therapist and Professional Belly dancer

Hi and thank you for visiting my website,

 

My name is Maria and I hope I can help you with what you are looking for.

I love teaching yoga, fitness and belly dancing, performing and being a therapist. 

 

 

My Background:

 

I started learning ballet and modern dancing at the age of 7. After passing my certification with the Rome Academy of ballet, I performed in theatres and festivals . Unfortunately my ballet school relocated and coming from a small village in the hills of the Apennine (Italy), meant not having the opportunity to use my Pointe shoes anymore. I decided to study Latin-American and ballroom dancing instead. From the cha cha cha to the tango, my hips were now free to move.

 

After moving to Ireland I threw myself into fitness and studying various therapy tecniques, including Chinese medicine. It’s then that I moved from dancing to martial arts.

 

I then moved to London to read Psychology and Criminology at a BSc level which i completed with a 2:i. There I attended classes in Ballet, Soca, Hip Hop and Modern dancing.

 

 I can say I found my calling once I started belly dancing.  I was a fast learner and found myself on stage after 6 weeks and then danced with various troupes.

I have trained with a variety of National and iInternational teachers and now perform and teach. 

Please see my belly dancing page for more info.

 

 I only teach what I love and I feel it's better for the body and mind. I thoroughly believe that if I enjoy it and I feel it's making a difference to my body and mind, then I can be enthusiastic and true to what I am teaching and my students will benefit from it. 

 

All my classes are suitable for different abilities and levels and variations are given in each class.

 

I value CPD and I strive to continue to specialise and further my studies.
