She has since travelled regularly to the Middle East to further her knowledge and has 18 years of Belly Dancing experience. A background in ballet and First Class BA modules in Physical Theatre & Performance Art add a strong emphasis on performance skills and physical technique to Guinevere's work. She has trained extensively to enrich her skills, becoming acredited in 2005 in the 'Advanced A-Z Belly Dance Teacher Training' under the expert tuition of Keti Sharif and has since completed her 'Original A-Z Teacher Training'.

With additional training from Dr Hassan Khalil, Hossam and Serena Ramzy, the Bellydance Superstars, Wendy Buonaventura, Karim Nagi, Paola Blanton, Ozgen, Suzanne Oehlers, Ishtar and Liza La Liza among many others, Guinevere's tuition is well researched as she continues to be inspired by Belly Dance and Middle Eastern Dance forms.
