New to belly dance? Do something special for yourself! Belly dance is a great total body workout that builds strength, is easy on your joints, and increases your flexibility. It's also a great emotional release because belly dance is fun and creative! We offer six Level 1 classes all geared for non-dancers. You will learn basic movements and then build upon them. See FAQs. Watch a video about our classes! More questions? Call 612-872-6050.
