Nikki Livermore

Originally from the North East, Nikki Livermore is an enthusiastic and vivacious Teacher & performer of Arabic dance, who is now located in Somerset.

Nikki has been bellydancing since 1996, when, feeling socially isolated, following the birth of her 3 young children, and with her husband Neil serving in the RAF abroad at that time, and moving from one end of the country to the other, she excitedly attended her very first lesson with Tina Hobin in Wallingford. Since then Nikki has trained as a JWAAD Tutor, qualifying in 2005.

Nikki has taught and performed throughout the UK, at most of the UKs major dance festivals, including Glastonbury Festival, The London Fantasia, and Majma.

Nikki loves performing at events, parties, weddings, and for many years danced in Oxford’s most prestigious restaurant “Du Liban”. It was at” Du Liban”, that Nikki met musician John Sleiman, whom she has worked with for many years. Together, Nikki & John teach workshops, at Festivals, in schools and at corporate team building days. They often team up at events to do performances together.

Nikki who is also a qualified Nurse, Fitness Instructor and Health Visitor believes completely in the holistic health benefits of bellydance, both physically and emotionally, and has taught dance to post natal women in her role as a Health Visitor, to promote emotional health & wellbeing. Nikki organises a very popular annual winter hafla in Gloucestershire, and in recent years has organised the Oxford Bellydance Bonanza.

Nikki is available to teach workshops and as a performer throughout the UK and abroad. Email Nikki for more information – or telephone her on 07400 228722.
