What class should I take if I have no dance experience?
We recommend the Intro to Belly Dance class. While beginners are welcome in the Level 1 classes, they move quicker than the intro level. An intro class will generally focus on basic isolations, building up to 1 or 2 moves. A Level 1 Class focuses on 3 or more movements, usually ending with a combo.
Pease note that sometimes the Level 1 classes teach choreography, so check with us to make sure it is a good time to drop in.
What is the difference between Belly Dance, Raqs Sharqi, and Fusion Belly Dance?
Raqs Sharqi in Arabic translates to Oriental Dance and refers to the stage version of Egyptian dance. This is commonly known in the West as Belly Dance.
Fusion Belly Dance refers to a style that is heavily based in MENAT (Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey) styles of dance blended with elements of flamenco, pop & lock, and more.
