About Bonita Rossouw

Bonita is a passionate and dedicated fusion belly dancer who has been diligently pursuing her dream. From the moment she discovered the mesmerizing art of belly dancing, she knew she wanted to specialize in the unique style of fusion belly dance, which blends diverse dance forms.

Since late 2018, she has been under the tutelage of the illustrious Natalie Clark, founder of Dancing Divinity, who has inspired and motivated Bonita to work harder and excel in her craft.

Bonita’s love for choreographing and performing is evident in her graceful and beautiful movements.

She has also expanded her horizons by studying with local and international teachers to gain more knowledge and add to her dance vocabulary.

Offstage, she indulges in her hobbies of reading, writing, cuddling with her furry pets, and has a sweet tooth for cookies!
