About Charlotte
Charlotte Desorgher is one of the leading figures in the United Kingdom's vibrant belly dance scene. A captivating performer, talented choreographer, well-loved instructor and large-scale event producer, Charlotte has gained international recognition not only for her timeless and elegant lyrical interpretations onstage, but also as being a driving force behind the current popularity of this beautiful art form.

Performing since childhood, she trained extensively in theatre arts as well as classical ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance, graduating with honours in dance from The London University Institute of Education. In 1982 she saw her first bellydancer and knew it was the dance for her!

As Creative Director of Hipsinc, the largest belly dance school in the UK, which she founded in 2007, Charlotte has trained and influenced literally thousands of dancers, including many top professionals. With a unique ability to break down technique and a warm, encouraging teaching style, Charlotte has changed the lives of many women, encouraging body acceptance, building self-esteem and guiding them to explore creative expression through belly dance.

An inspirational teacher!

Charlotte is currently creating a new style of bellydance — more dynamic, theatrical and exciting — to make bellydance better suited to the big stage. In 2013 she created Company of Dreams, which features some of the very best international dancers based in London. They worked together for a year creating this new style and in January 2014 the company launched their show, Dreams of the Orient, to enormous aclaim.

In February 2014 Charlotte was thrilled to be awarded an Arts Council grant to help her continue her development work and the company is going from strength to strength. They are available for corporate events, weddings and other events. You can find out more by visiting the Company of Dreams website.
