Belly Dance Basics 

Thursdays 5:30pm-6:25pm  |  $32 per month

This “basic” class is anything but! Get the foundation moves you need to start belly dancing through energetic lead and follow choreography. A few new movements will be introduced in each class to build comprehensive dance knowledge over time. Be ready to sweat and make friends. All bodies are welcome in this class.

Belly Dance Technique & Choreography
Thursdays 7:30pm-8:55pm  |  $44 per month

This course will cover belly dancing moves for beginners and intermediate students and those who wish to have a deeper understanding of movement related to Egyptian dance including folklore. The class will include hip, arm and shoulder movements, travelling moves, put together in combinations and sequences. The students will learn choreographies to belly dance music that may lead to future (volunteer) performance opportunities. All bodies are welcome in this class.

What to bring!

Dancers may choose to dance either barefoot, or in dance shoes. A hipscarf is recommended but not required (It doesn’t have to be a coin scarf, anything to outline your hips will do!) Please wear clothing that you can move in. You do not have to show your belly, but you are welcome to do so at your own comfort level.

Caution: belly dance classes can lead to a life-long appetite for Arabic music, rhinestones, and spontaneous dance parties.

Sign up for our next session and get your shimmy on! You must register in advance for the month. Registration details.

Students must be 18 years or older. CoEd classes are possible, but all students are expected to fully participate in class curriculum. You may not sit on the side and “watch”. For questions please reach out to Lenora at 


Other classes and events are regularly added to Meetup.
