Meet our newest Gypsy Caravan Dance Company member!

Welcoming our newest dancer to the tribe:

It is with pure delight, proudness, excitement, inspiration, and so much more that I introduce you to our newest Gypsy Caravan Dance Company member!

Richelle Spencer!

I’ve known and taught Richelle for over the past 12 years, and have watched her true, non-competitive, all-encompassing, heart and soul-felt, tribal spirit grow, expand, dive in, share, teach, love, and be gorgeously consumed by this dance we do…She dances hard, studies hard, ever expanding her dance, business, and personal skills, and gives all those she touches so much magic and love… unwavering… awe-inspiring…

doumbek roll……Richelle Spencer!


Hi, I am Richelle Spencer from Fremantle Western Australia. I started dancing at the tender age of 3, but it wasn’t until my late 30’s that I discovered bellydance!

My dance passion is Tribal Bellydance. It defines my lifestyle and is what gets me out of bed everyday with a spring in my step and a smile on my face.

The attraction to Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® for me, is the feeling of connection with each and every dancer in our dance circle, dancing together improvisationally using a vocabulary of signature movements that feel so beautiful on your body, creating magic and allowing you “to be in the moment” The wonderful sense of community it evokes, the divine feminine connection and the glorious costuming and musical choices we get to dance to.

I regularly perform with my dance troupe The Free Spirit Gypsies all over WA. I teach many different classes regularly from the Free Spirit Dance community, and have just started Dance Sanctuary: monthly workshops for women, focusing on dance as Ritual, to allow women to step into their power and walk or dance the earth like the goddess they are.


I was completely honoured and delighted, thrilled in fact! for the invitation to become a member of GCDC. I feel like a conduit to many women, speaking their language and assisting them to find themselves and the sacred feminine, creating a sisterhood built on love and trust.

Dance makes me happy, fills my heart with joy and love, grounds me and connects me to other beautiful like-minded spirits.

Thank you Paulette from all of my heart xx
