As a fusion belly dance format equally inspired by oriental and tribal styles, the Elysium vocabulary, flow and overall style is unique.
As both a dance practice and philosophy, Elysium was created to celebrate and empower the dancer.
Elysium dancers learn our multi-faceted style via the elements and levels to continually develop graceful, elegant and intuitive skills for fusion belly dance.
Explore Elysium as either a personal journey and enjoy new moves and ideas, or become accredited at each level and deepen your dance development.
