Bellydance Classes

Join us for Winter Bellydance Classes! Make this your best year yet and work on self love, self improvement, fitness and fun! Classes include Beginner, Intermediate, Shimmy & Sweat, Helwa Dancers, as well as private lessons. Classes are held from Sundays to Thursdays, with a variety of locations, prices and times. Winter classes are progressive and run until March, when Spring classes start.

Journey into the beautiful world of Arabic music and movement. In this progressive, full-experience session, you will learn about the history and cultural context of Raqs Sharqi/Beledi (bellydance), learn how to stand and move safely and mindfully with correct posture and alignment, breakdown and drill basic isolations and movements of this beautiful Middle Eastern art form in a safe, learning-focused environment from dedicated full time dancer/teacher Rahel, AND get a great workout!! For class, wear comfortable, breathable clothes, bare feet and bring a water bottle. Hipscarves provided. No experience required.
