Welcome to the Nefertiti Dance Website!
Nefertiti Dance formed in 2004 in Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia. There are a number of teachers and we all work together in a co-operative way to promote, perform and teach dance. It is community-based rather than a ‘business’. Please see the teacher's page for information about our teachers.
Nefertiti Dance is primarily a middle eastern and multicultural (Bollywood, Spanish, Hawaiian and Gypsy) dance group but we also have a highly skilled hoop dancer to add zest to our performances!
Middle Eastern Dance incorporates a wide range of 'folk dance' styles from the Persian Gulf, across North Africa, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece. What is known as 'belly dance' is just a small part of this. See Origins of M.E.D page for more info on the history of dance.
Nefertiti Dance provides a range of styles, skills and experience to students and audiences, and we love what we do! We teach safe dance technique and cater for beginners to advanced. We are a friendly and fun-loving group and enjoy regular social get-togethers as well as class.
Nefertiti was a Queen of ancient Egypt, famous for her beauty, and our dance group is named in her honour (see the Nefertiti page for more about Queen Nefertiti). As the saying goes, beauty is more than skin deep, and at Nefertiti we focus on developing poise and self-confidence in our students, whilst having a lot of fun.
Nefertiti Dance are the creators of the award winning 'Dugong Rock' dance - a blues/rock number to which we choreographed a belly dance fusion dance!! You can see it here: Dugong Rock. For the most up to date information about the group, please contact us or visit our Facebook page
