Welcome to Our Studio! In order for you to have the best learning experience we have designed a program for you to learn Belly Dance so that its Fun, Exciting, and Challenging. New students register for at least one course, and are able to drop in to (or register) any class at or below their level for extra practice. Each course is an 8 week course designed to teach you specific moves, techniques and combinations.
The corresponding 8 week choreography course applies the moves from the accompanying level before so that you can apply the movements learned into combinations and a fun dance!
