Regular classes are an hour long. We will begin with technique, basic steps and movements. Mastery of good form will allow you to move towards learning a beautiful dance with ease. With some dances, we will use veils, canes and finger cymbals (zills); even scarves and tamborines.

What is Belly Dance?

Belly dance (also known as Middle Eastern dance) is a fun way to express yourself through dance while exercising and toning your body. You will gain self-confidence, flexibility, grace, and poise.

We have a page of great links for shopping and educational information about belly dance where you can learn more about this wonderful manner of physical exercise and self expression as well as the costumes and props used in dances.
