The Dance of Life, established, owned and operated in Newcastle by Sonya
Manzalini is the longest operating school of its kind in the Hunter
region of NSW Australia.
"During this time I have built the school into a professional place of teaching for traditional folk and gypsy style belly dance.
I have also fused Bollywood and Flamenco styles with some of the
traditional aspects of folk and gypsy style Belly Dance to add to the
school's large repertoire of choreographies."
The school also boasts a professional Dance Troupe with the Dance Of Life Drummers and band Tariiq Turuq.
The troupe cater for a wide variety of local and statewide festivals, community events and corporate functions.
