BELLY DANCING FOR BEGINNERS 

With its beginnings in the Middle East, belly dance has become much more than simply a regional folk dance.  Anyone who enjoys music and moving to music can do this fun and social activity.  All new dancers are welcome too; no previous dance experience necessary!  Our dancers come from all walks of life, range in age from young adults to retirees, and are all at different levels of fitness and despite popular opinion we don't bare our bellies.  Come prepared for a few laughs, and develop lasting friendships through shared experiences in a supportive environment.  From folkloric to caberet, tribal to dance fusion, belly dance promotes body awareness and confidence as well as creativity and self-expression, all through gentle exercise and the art of moving to music.
