Belinda Goodwin is a natural and empathetic dance teacher who appears to have found her true calling in life. Her classes are inspirational - each session commencing with Belinda giving an explanation of what areas and systems she is focusing on for that class. Each dance is demonstrated and its beneficial components explained further throughout the movement. Belinda also elaborates on the links between the physical and emotional aspects of the movements and how they are related to the rhythm of the music for each piece. As participants she reminds us off the importance of the brain to develop new neural networks which can only serve to benefit participants further. Belinda gains the trust of her pupils so they work hard to meet her expectations. She uses praise constantly and does not criticise or cajole her students. She encourages them to do what they feel they can best achieve within the limitations of their Individual conditions. The class benefits from her physicality, musicality and sense of spirituality as well as her great sense of rhythm. She loves to heighten the mood of a dance by adding vocalisations to give special emphasis to sections of the music that she particularly enjoys or wants stressed. Her special talents combined with her enthusiasm for life and her compassion, concern and consideration for and of her pupils as individuals make Belinda an unforgettable, excellent dance teacher.

Thank you, Belinda, my body feels so much stronger since I started NIA dance and your gentle guidance through both new and repeat routines helps my body learn and remember at a deeper level whilst my busy mind finds a place of rest and joy.
I love Nia Dance classes. Belinda is an amazing Instructor. Makes it so easy and a delight to be in her Class. The whole body - low Impact workout, movement to music. Great . Stretching makes the body feel fantastic. .Thank you Belinda
Belinda offers different levels 'Dance to Heal, Gentle Nia & Classic Nia' and dancing at a location or at home using zoom. That's the flexibility that I need to stay connected. Totally recommend it to all age groups. Try it, you will not regret it.
My Wednesdays wouldn't be the same without joining Belinda and our Nia group. The classes have given me the flexibility to be so much active, lessening the aches and pain that comes with aging.
Belinda is a wonderful, enthusiastic, teacher, who connects the movements with the seasons, environment, community and spirituality. The music she uses inspires and supports the movements. It is a real blessing and privilege to be involved in her sessions, they are freeing, uplifting yet relaxing and I find them hugely beneficial. Thankyou so much Belinda you are a glorious blessing to our community not only of Nia dancers but the larger community as well.

We love our sessions . Belinda is such an enthusiatic tutor, very caring and fun.
Loving my Nia classes with Belinda. Recently retired after an active working life I was keen to find a way to keep moving in an environment that is well designed, fun and really helpful with joints, stretching and breathing. Discovered Nia via a friend – best recommendation ever!
Belinda is a wonderful teacher and all her classes are well prepared and easy to follow. She encourages her dancers to interpret the movement in their own way so there is no wrong or right way to do any of the moves. These classes are great for beginners or experienced dancers.
