About Our Guest Speaker: Elaine De Rooy, Belly Laughs Navel Academy

Elaine De Rooy started Belly Laughs Navel Academy, a professional belly dance teaching, and performance business, in Qualicum Beach in 2012. She did this because she saw too many women try belly dancing once and then give up because they felt too self-conscious and intimidated. In her 40's when she started belly dancing and aged 51 when she started her business, Elaine’s approach to belly dancing was unique in the industry. To this day, she keeps her student routines classy, but a little bit sassy! She brings laughter and a bit of silliness, to an otherwise serious dance genre, thru music and motion.

Elaine will also share her best business start-up missteps, pitfalls and awkward moments, and what she learned from them. The rest of the program will involve audience participation, so wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to have fun!
