Hotel Coral in beautiful Matala

The bellydance workshop in Crete takes place in Hotel Coral in beautiful Matala in the south of Crete/ Greece. Integrated body work will relax your mind and make you feel comfortable in your own body. That is stimulating the flow of movement in your bellydance. This will cause lots of pleasure bellydancing.



The bellydance workshop in Crete will take place again with a minimum of 3 participants. If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible. 

Best is if you already have formed a small group of three people. But also if you are on your own please let me know. 

As soon as I know who is coming we will pick a date for the week together. It has to be warm enough but not too hot. 

Last week of august or first week of September are great but not the only options.


The workshop will start on Monday at 10 am, and ends on Saturday at 7 or 8 pm. Flights are mostly on Sundays.

How to book your flight and hotel Coral from Holland?

In Dutch: Vanuit Nederland kun je namelijk - heel voordelig - je vliegreis met hotel Coral boeken als pakket. Dat doe je bij Sunweb. Voordelig is het wanneer je met zijn tween de kamer deelt. Sommige partners gaan ook gewoon mee. Let wel op: na de kerstperiode zijn er nog maar weinig kamers beschikbaar. Voor februari moeten we allemaal wel al hebben geboekt.


Dinner alongside the beach

In the evening we will have dinner at one of the Tavernas (Greek restaurants) alongside the beach or at the small town of Matala. (Dinner is not included in the price).


If the participants are of a variety of nationalities, then the classes will be given in simple English. Otherwise it will be in Dutch.

And do you know that I have been teaching the bellydance workshop in Crete for the last 3 years at the same location? Here underneath you can listen to the experiences of women who were there in the last years.
