Dancing with the Goddess

Intergenerational Middle Eastern Dance

Sundays, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm, Starts April 30


Open to all levels, all abilities, all bodies, and all ages bellydance is an ancient expression and celebration of the feminine spirit and form. Safe and welcoming for first time dancers but still challenging for experienced yoga practitioners and athletes alike, bellydance is low or no impact and builds strength, flexibility, and musical timing. Bringing your mind in touch with your body, this class is a blend of Raqs sharqi (Arabic style), modern Turkish, and classic American Cabaret. We honor the tradition of bellydance as a solo improvisational dance style, grounding you with alignment and community so that you can find your own personal expression.
