5th Element is a group of soulful bellydancer and instructors based in Taranaki, New Plymouth in New Zealand.
A diverse background of dancers, we come together to share our love for belly dancing as an art, fitness and expression. Embracing belly dance as an ancient (baladi) and contemporary and ever evolving form of dance art (raks sharki), we bring different music and style to our audiences.
We embrace that every dancer, new, young and season (no, we are never ‘old’, just more seasoned *wink!) bring a new element to this evolving dance fitness and art form. Its about celebrating life, womanhood, music, nature and all that inspires us. For those who have yet to start bellydancing, we encourage you to start this journey of dance, spirit of sharing, heighten awareness of the body through dance! Also a great way to keep subtle, move and tone!

In recognition of the growing belly dance interest, 5th Element was set-up by Rosalina Pang, an Oriental dancer originally from Singapore, with the alliance of Clare Penberthy and Stephanie Moss. (from Trinity Beats). It is our desire to set up 5th Element as a platform for dancers at all levels and styles to share their belly dancing experience, learn, grow, encourage and support one another.
