A warm shimmying welcome to 5th Element Dance!💓

New Belly Dance Class in Taupo in 2022!


Looking to start a multi-ethnic belly dance group in Taupo to share my passion to Taupo community on bellydance with world music and creative movement.

 Let’s awaken our body’s intelligence through exploration of oriental dance and other world cultures through music and movement.

Learn the fundamentals in oriental belly dance, fusion, and hula, Raizel invites you to start or continue your belly dance journey with her!

“I have been teaching and performing since 2004, moved to New Zealand in 2008 and have fostered a lovely community of multi-ethnic dance sisters in Taranaki.

Having recently relocated to Taupo, I would love to share with you my cross-cultural background of dance, foster a community here and share with you my knowledge and love for dance.  Come learn the art of bellydance and be encouraged to sway your hips, shimmy and dance to fun and sensual body undulations that is both fun and flavourful to bring out the Goddess in us!

In my class, we include warm up stretches and isolations to connect with your body!  Move with fun dance exercises with world music, combos, and drills to full dance choreography, and a relaxing stretch down, to complete the session.”


Classes are held in 8-week terms and held weekly.

Learn a new dance every 8 weeks!
