Belly dance your way to a new expression of the feminine form. Enhance and integrate parts of your body into an aesthetic expression of dance movements. Belly dance your way to fitness, enjoyment and entertainment. A strong statement of the female body, fuller use of the pelvis, the hips, the thighs, and the torso. Individual classes or a series of six classes offered, one hour each week, in Middle Eastern dance taught in a small group with individual instruction. Dance studio located in a safe residential area with easy parking.

Beginning Belly Dance Series: Instruction in basic steps and body movements; Egyptian cabaret style, beladi, hip movements, hip and shoulder shimmies, belly rolls; shoulder rib cage and hip isolations, snake arms, veil wrap and veil routines; zils and rhythms; cane. A preliminary 15- minute warm-up prepares the body for the movements.
