Sophie – Arabic Dance

Sophie first discovered the joy of belly dancing during her second year at medical school 11 years ago, and has been in love with it ever since. She took classes in Oxford in Egyptian style dancing, then moved to London and started training with the Josephine Wise Academy of Arabic Dance, where she started dancing professionally. She’s since danced all over the UK and abroad, and is now delighted to be teaching her very own beginner level class here in Cardiff.

Fun fact: I’m a Doctor by day, and a dancer by night. Occasionally these roles have become confused, and I was once caught doing a shimmy by my consultant on the ortho-geriatric ward. I’m now a lot more careful about where I practice!
