What Victorian Educators are saying...

The moment Azura stepped into the room, the children were mesmerised. Azura is a gifted storyteller and ​musician who had everybody spellbound by her stories and dancing to the rhythm of the drums.


Zareen, Brunswick Free Kinder

Azura was fantastic! She was very patient and calm but also super engaging! The kids loved it and felt ​comfortable to join in. Was age appropriate, connected dance and story telling and explained about Middle ​Eastern culture in a really kid friendly way.


We could not recommend this incursion enough! Thank you Azura, the incursion was incredibly enjoyable for the ​kids and teachers!


Emily, Amsleigh Park Primary School

The Jungle Shimmy Program benefits children’s development and learning by promoting gross/fine motor skills ​and physical activity through dancing and playing musical instruments. It also excites the children and builds ​cultural awareness through the variety of music/language used.


The program supports memory development e.g., learning dance routines, and foreign language through songs.

The children are always engaged with the performer as she is consistently smiling, positive and energetic.

What our Students have to say...

Different personalities, ages, shapes and sizes but all with the same passion! - that’s what Bellydance is for me. ​Sensual and fun moves and props (veil, wings, cane and zills) allow me to express my feelings and the emotions ​of the varied music. There is no beter exercise. That we can do this in such a warm and nurturing community of ​like-minded soulds is FAAAAAAAANTASTIC!


Sandra

For me being a shy person I never could have imagined getting up in front of people and dancing. I did it and ​loved it! The whole experience was amazing.


Anna

Bellydance with Azura’s Oasis has been an important part of my life and growth over the last six years. ​Bellydance has been an exciting, fun and crazy adventure that has given me a confidence and understanding ​of my own body and the opportunity to form fantastic friendships. At the end of a day, a bellydance show or ​class is always certain to lift my spirits.

I have been a Professional Bellydancer, Educator and ​Entertainer for over 25 years.

After obtaining my Certificate IV in Leisure and ​Health in 2020, I commenced employment as a ​Lifestyle Assistant at Twin Parks and Royal ​Freemasons.


Working with the elderly has changed my outlook on ​life, and brought new meaning to my work as an ​Entertainer. Inspiring audiences to move and express ​themselves has always been my motivation and ​brought me great happiness. Working with the elderly ​has opened my heart in ways I never thought ​possible.

I developed these Active Programs to suit the needs ​of residents living in Aged Care and bring a sense of ​joy and celebration into the home.


I hope you can join me on the next adventure!

Testimonials

Azura always added a little bit of extra spark to the activities she ran. She made the residents feel extra special ​and happy. She always had a smile on her face.

Sandra Slaviero (daughter of Bruna Mondin D9)


I want to thank you from my heart for offering your exhilarating classes. I used to dance a lot and it was the only ​thing that brought joy to every part of my being. I can feel the energy flow through my body and the release of ​tightly held moments that got stuck in my body. I am happily dancing along with you and it's ok that one arm ​doesn't work properly.


Anna Couttieour

Azura showed a talent in developing innovative and engaging programs for our residents. One activity of note ​was her Sunday Swing-A-Long program; we received fantastic feedback from our residents and their families. ​Azura developed a great rapport with residents, including those who normally tended to keep to themselves.
