Chandra

Guest teacher - Qi Gong/Taiji

Chandra (the Moon)

Sandra Van Frankfoort-Mamentu/Chandra was Born in South Celebes, Indonesia. She grew up in the Netherlands.

She is a professional bellydancer/instructor who loves to teach children and adults. In 2006 Chandra started taking Bellydance classes just for fun and because she felt inspired watching the beauty of professional bellydance performances and the art of Middle Eastern Dance. In February 2011 she completed Yamila’s 3,5 year training for Professional performers/teachers of Middle Eastern Dance in NL.

Throughout the years, she attended classes with professional instructors from the Netherlands and abroad, complementing with additional private coaching sessions by Khalida (DE), Queenie (BE), Bozenka (GR), Shujana (NL), Anasma (FR) and Rubina (NL).

She also attended several intensive dance weekends to deepen her dance studies even further.

Chandra’s dance experience goes beyond Middle Eastern dance. In the past she has passionately studied the following styles:

  • Ballroom and latin
  • Streetdance
  • Hiphop
  • Salsa

She loves combining elements of these styles and her dance background with Bellydance to create beautiful Fusion!

In addition Chandra has started studying several Martial Arts Styles since 2015:

  • Taiji Yang Style (Ancient Martial Art) (in 2008 she did the Chen style)
  • QiGong Ba Duan Jin (Health Exercise)

Chandra has successfully taught 2 introductory classes in Taiji and Qigong during the first MoveSpiration weekend in 2017, and she will be our guest teacher for both Taiji and Qigong again at MoveSpiration 2018.
