Gypsy Caravan Teachers Australia


I live in Townsville and teach Gypsy Caravan at the Wulguru Community Centre on Tuesday nights.
As a teacher and dancer I have been inspired by the amazing teachers that I have had the privilege of studying under. I usually fall in love with them as performers and then can’t wait to learn their mysterious ways.

I am also inspired by the beautiful music we dance to.

I began my Gypsy Caravan journey when I moved to Townsville from Adelaide. I had my very first taste of GC in a workshop with our fabulous mentor Nina. I was then lucky enough to be invited to classes with the exquisite Jordan Galliott.
GC has since dominated my dance time.

I try to spend as much time dancing and performing as I can but when I’m not dancing I am spending time with my dance sisters socially and hanging out with my precious children. I also work in Disability Support and as a CTA at James Cook University.
I am loving my life as a dance teacher and performer in the beautiful tropics of Northern Queensland.

Wendy has completed her Collective Soul Level 1, and hopes to complete her Teacher Training later in the year.

LISA NEWTON – Kuranda Dance
In 2003, I discovered Tribal Style Bellydance, when I met Nina and from then I have studied with Nina of Gypsy Rain, Paulette of Gypsy Caravan, Alaine from Perth and Sienna from Tribal Zest.

I have completed my Teacher Training level 1 certificate and Collective Soul level 1-3 certificates and continue to grow as a teacher and student of dance. In 2011, I opened my own studio and brought Tribal Style to Kuranda as Kuranda Dance.

In 2015, we closed our doors to make space for the next evolution of dance in Kuranda. This appeared last year, when Magnolia, one of my dance students, took the step to become a Tribal Grooves Certified Teacher trainer. I love going along to Magnolia’s Grooves classes and thoroughly enjoy being her student and supporting her with collaborative workshops.

I love the feminine energy and strength I get from dance classes with Magnolia each week and with Nina at her monthly workshops at the Temple. I feel so privileged to be able to dance alongside my tribal sisters all over the world.

From Albany, southern WA, a land of rugged coastlines, wide open expanses and the wonders of the bush, Becky loves to dance, celebrate, connect, journey and play with her sisters from around the world.

First introduced to Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance in the late 1990’s when Paulette braved the distance to travel ‘down-under’, the dance whispered to her heart and wove its magic. The alchemy over the last 20 something years has seen Becky combine her love of dance with her profession in somatic and therapeutics to create spaces for healing and restorative practice that nurture the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Becky is the founder of Evocation Dance, offering dance, movement, meditation, mindfulness and creative/expressive arts to women in her home state of Western Australia and further afield.
Becky has attained certification in CS6/ TT4/ Tribal Grooves.
