Hello there, I’m Kim Bech. Also known as Khalida (my dance name, meaning ‘forever’)
I’m a multi-award winning belly dance performer and online teacher, born in Belgium, based in Germany.
About fifteen years into my performance career, I’ve had to find a way to overcome chronic pain from an old spinal injury, using the power of gentle movement and strength/mobility work.
Because of this I firmly believe that healthy movement and joyful creativity can be learnt by ANYONE, at ANY AGE.
My inspirations are my ongoing studies in Chinese and Korean Martial Arts (Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi Chuan, Taekwondo and Haidong Gumdo) combined with my dance and movement experience from the past 20 years.
To share what I have learned, and am learning still today, I’ve created an ONLINE BOOST PROGRAM for dancers of all ages, all levels, all styles.
Movement quality and pain-free dancing is achievable for everyone.
This is why my online programs for dancers focus not only on dance technique, but also on gaining strength, mobility, and (pain-free!) movement fluidity in daily life.
You can join me live or via recordings (or a mix of both!), from anywhere in the world.
Contact me if you have any questions at all about studying with me online.
It is never too late.
“Hello Khalida thank you so much, loved the two classes I had with you, and the conditioning class was just what I needed now! Loved your dancing and the finale with the fan veils and the Euro music was great, at the end you were like an apparition that slowly vanished behind a stream of colour :-)”
