About Ioanna's Belly Academy

A Modern Belly Dance Studio in Pretoria East

Ioanna’s Belly Academy & Entertainment boasts with an incredible host of Performing Artists. We strive to maintain our reputation of quality, authenticity & high standards.

The Belly Dance Academy is the most prominent Oriental Dance studio in Pretoria. Offering training from Absolute Beginner to Professional Levels. All sizes are welcomed. All races are welcomed. This is for ALL WOMEN! You will start an amazing journey of self-discovery & unlock your inner goddess. We continually strive to preserve and maintain the healthy environment of our classes. We do not allow negative talk and we encourage a sisterly bond between all students. The effects are magical to watch. Friendships form, relationships blossom & women & girls simply flourish while they grow in confidence and self-love.

While we are all lifelong students, there is a continuous need to improve ourselves. The Belly Academy’s Professional team takes annual trips to Egypt to maintain and improve their training. Workshops & intensives with world renowned Superstars and Master instructors are a regular investment to ensure our students and clients stay up to date with not only the latest Belly Dance fashion trends but also the evolution of the art form and culture. It is because of this that Ioanna’s Belly Academy is on an international standard, setting us miles apart.

The Belly Academy Dance Troupe proudly holds several Competition Titles & Gold Medals. They take part in annual competitions in order to maintain their titles and positions.
