Learning the ART of Belly Dance!

Private classes can be a wonderful experience. You are learning a dance, an art, and undergoing self exploration and personal growth all at the same time. As many dancers will a test to; they began belly dance as a calling from an ancient feminine wordless place. Images, feelings and stereotypes accompany it, yet also often something deeper. They just know they always have felt compelled to try it. What they find once they begin is that a new and exciting world opens up to them that they were not expecting. The art helps them express themselves in every facet of their life more fully. Everything shifts and changes. This dance is an asset to girls and women of all walks ages, sizes and nationalities. An ancient way of feminine knowing that vivifies our lives.

all ages, all different reasons and all levels of coordination.


Private instruction cost a little less than most therapy and massage appointments. They are more costly than group classes but much more personalized and students make faster progress.

Classes are arranged according to your goals and needs.
Start with the first 3 Beginning course categories that move through Intermediate and Advanced Performance. These courses are geared to prepare you for understanding the rudiments of American Classic Style belly dance as it has been cultivated over the past 40 years. Everyone moves at a different pace, thus the subjects outlined are supplemented with additional 60 minute classes on that continued subject until the student feels ready to move on to the next level.
There are many styles of belly dance available in America that have evolved from these principals. The art form is alive and growing. The hope is you will start here and in your journey try on many stylizations. As the dancer becomes proficient at the art of musical and rhythmic self expression by way mastering the physical isolations, she is on her way to the next phase. Then the artist can move in to a creative fusion of stylistic themes, music consideration, props and costumes.
