Basic belly dance class session includes beginning and intermediate technique, practice with props such as veils and finger cymbals, and Egyptian style choreography. Props are available for use during class time or for purchase from the instructor. Wear comfortable workout clothes. Students may dance barefoot or in thin-soled dance shoes.

Advanced session includes choreography development and guided improvisation. Advanced students will also have performance opportunities in various outside events.  The Advanced session culminates in a performance for friends and family during the final class.  Previous belly dance experience is recommended.
