We are the pirates of belly dance - fierce, courageous, wild hearted, free spirited, and we love swords.
This is the website of Darla, a Middle Eastern Dancer, performer, and instructor from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Darla is the Artistic Director of Wild Spirit Belly Dance (formerly Earth Moves Belly Dance). Darla has been studying and perfecting this dance form since 1995, and teaching since 2002. The foundation of Wild Spirit Belly Dance is a belief in the ability of belly dance to ignite joy and connection to everything around us and to our unique feminine energy.
These beliefs shine through in Darla's teaching style where a light heart reigns supreme. If you want to get a little crazy, while learning an abundance, this is the instructor for you! Darla offers classes in Oriental, Tribal, Fusion, and Dunyavi Rom (Gypsy) styles of belly dance. Focus areas of study often include: drum solos, improvisation, veil, sword, candle, Wings of Isis, fan veil, solo development, drumming, Middle Eastern rhythms, strictly technique, and many more.
Long time students Roberta, Nicole, and Amaryce have joined the teaching team, and are instructing introductory, technique, and choreography classes.
