About Laura Selenzi
Laura has passionately studied bellydance since 1998, traveling all over the world to gain the knowledge she is excited to share with you today. As a lead dancer in Arabesque, Canada's top Middle Eastern dance company, Laura studied and taught the intricacies of Egyptian bellydance in a creative and ever-evolving environment. Having pursued in-depth studies in the health sciences to better understand the body and how it works, Laura brings you a safe, well-researched and challenging class where you'll have fun while learning an incredible art form.
A dynamic instructor, Laura strives to inspire people of all backgrounds to truly connect with their own bodies by combining her in-depth knowledge of anatomy, technique and learning methods with a sense of humor. Dedicated to a healthy, creative and fun dance practice, she loves to teach and see the transformation in her students. Drop into a class and check it out for yourself!

What Laura's students have to say:
I am so glad that you are teaching and that we are dancing with you. There was a time I didn’t think I would dance anymore and I had no idea that it could be this much fun, enjoyable and exciting….. this is how it should be!!"
"The best therapy I have ever taken part in. Dance makes you feel beautiful. Laughing and having fun is the best therapy. No gym in the world can put this sexy back into your life!"
"I very much enjoyed the classes and appreciate your friendly and skilled teaching style! Thank you."
"Her explanations and technical break downs are thorough and precise (her background in massage therapy helps), while telling us to relax and flow with the movement. Laura has wonderful energy, wit and much enthusiasm. She allows the classes to be fun without feeling strict."
