Class Descriptions

Kids Bellydance

Through this 4-week introductory session, we are teaching kids the art of bellydance in a fun and interactive way. They will learn how to shimmy, do hip accents, make snake arms and learn how to walk like an Egyptian! We also have beautiful hip scarves for them to wear while dancing. In classes they will enjoy group games and making new friendships, while having fun!

Belly Basics

This class is for those new to belly dance or wanting to perfect their basic technique. Learn how to isolate and control your body, basic steps, and travelling movements; then string them together into effortless combinations. Improve your coordination, stamina, and muscle memory. Meet new people and have a blast while doing it!


Combinations will show you how to fluidly transition between your movements. Start learning more complex steps as well as layering the basics. This class is where belly dance starts to come alive. Must be fluent in bellydance basics.

Performance Series- Now BDPR (BellaDance Performance Rehearsals)

These classes will teach choreographies used for commercial gigs and are supplemented by the studio. Please let us know if you are interested in joining this class. No drop-ins allowed, pre-registration required.
