What makes my classes the best? Experience. 

Teaching weekly classes since 1988 has given me the insight and experience to help anyone learn to belly dance. My classes follow a professional structure like other dance studios, starting with a body-conditioning warmup that uses authentic belly dance steps and movements, followed by drills that help you develop dance skills. My passion is helping you to discover more ways to enjoy belly dance!

Classes include not only combinations; but tips on how to dance to the music; how to hear belly dance rhythms, improvise, and more.
Students who have studied elsewhere are delighted to learn these hidden secrets that make my classes unique!
Advanced classes feature fun props and balancing; and you can try your hand(s) at finger cymbals - also known as " zills".

You can take my local classes, or learn with my on-demand videos on YouTube; or get personal coaching via Skype or Google Hangout. Call me if you have any questions; I love helping people learn about belly dancing!
