Sonja Thompson

My name is Sonja Thompson and I am from the downtown St.John's area and currently live there now.

I am a Modern Egyptian Style BellyDancer with a modern fusion mix. My dance background consists of training in Egyptian Raqs Sharqi, American Tribal Style BellyDance, American Cabaret BellyDance and Turkish Oriental BellyDance. I fell in love with this beautiful dance form over 30 years ago while living in British Columbia when I first seen it danced, and from that moment on I decided that I had to know everything about it, and I haven't stopped learning since.

The BellyDance for me is one filled with passion and fire, sensuality and beauty through movement and It gives me joy to teach others so they too, can enjoy and make this dance their own.
I am a BellyDance performer, choreographer and instructor.
