A bellydance class is an uplifting way to add low-impact exercise to a fitness routine for every age and body type. Bellydance can help to gently increase your flexability and range of motion while encouraging excellent muscle control -- in addition to being a lot of fun!

Class Opportunities -- throughout the year

  • Each Fall & Spring we try to offer courses in Basic and Intermediate steps and techniques. Please contact us if you would like to be notified when upcoming classes are scheduled.

  • Private lessons (individual or group) and coaching services are available upon request for dancers of all levels. These are opportunities to improve general technique, address specific concerns or performance skills, and add depth to your choreographic or improvisation abilities.

  • Add a special flair to a girl’s night or afternoon and schedule a mini group lesson in your home.  Perfect for teen parties and sleepovers, a bachelorette party, or any time you want some extra excitement. Cost depends on the length of the lesson (30 minutes up to an hour) and the number of people attending.  A 10-minute solo performance can also be included.

  • Fall Workshop and Show.  We routinely bring in nationally and world-famous dancers to teach a two- or three-day weekend workshop and showcase them in a show with the troupe. Workshops are typically designed towards dancers who are familiar with basic bellydance movements - sign up prior for a basics class.

  • Dancers who have taken two levels of classes (or the equivelent) may be eligible to attend regular Daughters of the New Moon troupe rehearsals to practice technique and choreography.
