These fun Belly Dance Classes will get you familiar with the Middle Eastern beats, tone your abs, strengthen your posture, and increase your co-ordination. You'll have a load of fun whilst losing your inhibitions!

During the classes, you’ll experience a whole new way of dancing and getting in tune with your body. You will not only be moved by the dance but by the music as well. Students will learn the foundation, movement, and vocabulary of belly dance. The dance classes will have you moving your body like a pro with the right introduction to the dances' hip, torso, arm, hand, shimmies and traveling movements.

No prior dance experience is required!

The most wonderful aspect of this ancient dance is that it is not limited to people of a certain age, ability, or size. That is why so many women use belly dancing classes as a vehicle for nurturing a sense of personal empowerment, healing, and self-acceptance.

Based on a foundation of high-quality dance technique, the lessons provide culturally appropriate instruction for beginners to advanced students of Arabic dance. Most importantly, belly dancing classes are always fun, fun, fun!
