If you are ever in the UK and fancy coming down to Devon then do please drop in to class and say hello, you’ll get a very warm welcome.

Alternatively you could stay at home and join me online with my live weekly Zoom classes from absolute beginner to advanced performance level, plus I have workshops, private lessons, troupe coaching and online social get togethers too.

Or, I could come and visit you, absolutely anywhere in the world – well, once things open up again.

Either way just get in touch and together we will make things happen.


You can also find me with a variety of workshops on FCBDU (the FatChanceBellyDance® University) and giving out weekly hints and tips to help your dance practice with the Friday Challenge on Facebook.


I became a Certified Studio in 2010 and a FatChance Continuing Education (FCCE) Instructor having graduated from Advanced Teacher Training in June 2015. I am honoured to have taught both General Skills and Teacher Training alongside Carolena and Megha several times and am part of the team of instructors for the new online General Skills course, which is very exciting.

If you haven’t already guessed, I’m passionate about this dance and over the years have been fortunate to travel to the USA, Europe and further afield, both for my personal dance training and also for teaching my own workshops. Friendships with dancers at home and abroad have been forged and alongside my own troupe, Kalash Tribal, I also direct Panacea, an international virtual performance troupe created during the Covid 19 pandemic.



“Even though I am a former member of the FatChanceBellyDance® troupe I take every opportunity to study with Kelley. She is an inspirational teacher with a passion for detail and I love how she breaks down technique. She is also one of the kindest people I know. If you have the opportunity to study with Kelley your dance will be the richer for it.”

” I BLOODY love this woman. She’s the best FCBD®style teacher I’ve had the pleasure to learn from (apart from Carolena) and one of the most warm-hearted, humble and generous souls I had the pleasure to find on my path”

“Kelley Beeston is, without a doubt, one of the best teachers I’ve had the chance to learn from, and a truly wonderful and loving human being. She is very empathic and attentive to each and everyone, she fully understands how we each learn in different ways and she uses all the resources she can to get the message through to you. She has brilliant tips and visualizations that you will never forget, and that truly help with your understanding and practice of the movements. Her classes are inclusive, fun and relaxed, and always so efficient, that even as a more skilled dancer there is always something to learn or improve! I absolutely recommend her classes, to all dancers and newcomers “
