Beginner Class Details

If you like learning new things, if you’re looking to strengthen your body, and if you want to step out of your comfort zone – you’ll love belly dance!You’ll learn how to access and isolate muscles around the hips and torso to create both soft, fluid movements, and stunning sharp hits and locks.

This class is designed for the total beginner with no previous belly dance experience. Most people take this course several times, as we focus on different areas of the dance in each session. This course covers both technique and choreography chunks, to give you a technical grounding that can be transferred to any belly dance style, and to get you up and dancing straight away.

Improver Class Details

This class is for you if you’re familiar with basic belly dance movement vocabulary, including basic traveling steps and arm work! In this class we start layering these basic movements, traveling more, and learning more advanced variations of base moves.

This course covers both technique and choreography chunks to get you up and dancing straight away. This class also sometimes includes full choreographies for fun and casual performance opportunities at our school haflas (belly dance parties!).

Open-Level Class Details

This class is designed for belly dancers with at least 6 months continous belly dance experience, and with a desire to grow and be challenged! In these classes, we cover technique that is familiar to most levels, as well as encountering some technique that may be challenging for all levels. In open-level classes, we often dive into some special cultural, musical, and historical topics that we might not have the time to cover in a regular class. Get ready to expand your dance vocabulary and think more deeply about Middle Eastern Dance!

Intermediate/Advanced Class Details

This class is designed for belly dancers with a minimum of 18 months continuous belly dance experience under their coin belts. This is for you if you love raqs sharqi and want to challenge your brain and your body as we try trickier technique drills and train our ears further! We’ll be working on layering, advanced techniques, musicality, emotional expression, and combinations each class to put it all into practice!
