Bellydance Classes

Join us for Spring Bellydance Classes! Have a cultural experience while you 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. Spring classes are progressive and beginner and intermediate classes will perform in Rahel’s annual student recital June 16th. Additional costume fees apply. Courses are 12-13 weeks and run until June when Summer classes start!

NOTE: THIS IS THE PERFORMANCE SESSION! Each class will learn a group choreography to perform in Rahel’s annual student recital Ya Helwa on June 16th. Students will learn about stage presence and performance psychology, will learn how to do stage makeup and will receive  a beautiful costume. Participants will gain confidence and build connections and community with the classmates sharing the stage with them.  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!!
