| A bellydance class is an uplifting way to add
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!
Current and Upcoming Classes
otherwise noted, classes
offered by Daughters of the New Moon have a minimum age requirement of
12 to acknowledge the
difference in the learning styles of younger age groups.
