Should you take group or private lessons?
If your availability aligns with our class schedule, opt for group classes—they're perfect for learning the curriculum, breaking a sweat, and having fun with a welcoming group. Start with our bellydance crash course or the introductory series. After that, join the beginner series.
If you're a new dancer who is hesitant about dancing with other people or a more experienced student keen on honing specific techniques and choreography, private lessons are the way to go.
Many students attend both group and private lessons. All classes are in-person, but online lessons are also available.
What do you wear to bellydance class?
Pack a yoga mat and water. Slip into comfy attire— think yoga pants and a t-shirt for unrestricted movement. We recommend ballet slippers or jazz/zumba sneakers. If you've got a hip scarf and dance veil, toss those in too. Don't own a hip scarf? No worries, we sell them at the studio, and we can point you in the right direction to purchase dance veils.
What are the instructor's qualifications?
