About Me

Hi - I took stage name, Caliana!   My name is actually Claire.  I used to live in London - mainly Croydon area - for many, many, years, prior to moving to Gloucestershire.  I am actually now 'semi-retired' but taught Egyptian-style belly dance in Glos. for almost 7 years. 


 I was originally inspired by my London teacher I started learning from back in 2001: internationally-renowned Melissa Abraham.   Due to post-viral problems during past couple of years or so (post-viral fatigue; then some post-viral arthritis) not been as active.  I am not able to return to visit London as often as I would like.  I still have an interest in belly dance; often attending lessons given by Nikki Livermore.

I am what they call a 'breast cancer survivor' - 'touch wood'!  Had mastectomy in 2000, having had the cancer previously in 1994; could never 'face' having a reconstruction - so spend some considerable time having to adapt bedlah bra tops!  Quite a 'challenge' but got ideas from a lovely friend, who had gone through similar experiennce.

I still have a website - but only now available for occasional events.  I was never a professional dancer, but have enjoyed dancing so much - haflas, some performances mainly at charity functions etc., then I got asked to teach by several friends!
