Class Descriptions

Monday – Introduction to Belly Dance

Come enjoy the essence and culture of Raqs Sharqi, also known as BELLY DANCING!

This class is designed to cover the basics such as history, posture, weight change, all those shimmy-tastic moves, and more! Add the element of FUN and we’re in for an AWESOME TIME!

Don’t be scared if you’ve never danced before and you feel that rag dolls have more coordination than you do. All you need is an awesome attitude and a smile!

Once you get a hang of your technique, we apply it towards a simple and fun combination!  Let’s dance!

Tuesday – Int/Adv Technique and Focus Topic

Isolation, fluidity, range of motion, control over our movement….these are just some of the things we aim for.

Learning proper technique supports you moving WITH your body instead of against your body. Be prepared to practice until it becomes permanent and to sweat until you dehydrate into a raisin.

Focus topics change from month to month and technique is worked into topic. This class is recommended for those who are very comfortable with the foundational/beginning moves of belly dance.

Payment Details:  When you buy 4 classes or 5 classes, they are only good for the month they are started in. They don’t roll over to the following month.

Which pricing is best for me?

Great question!  Choose the one that excites you the most!

  • If you love to learn in only live streaming settings, the individual class prices are right for you.
  • If you love a hybrid model, where you can learn on your own AND interact with others, including me, also getting live feedback, then the most popular package, the Unlimited ALL Access Pass is the one to go with. Best of both worlds
  • If you know you want all of the above and personalized one-on-one coaching through private lessons and more, then VIP is the way to go. You can click here for the VIP package.

Why get a membership?

Consider this:

  • The point of getting a membership is to have a sense of a long-term and continuing education in your training. Doing one offs, here and there, have a different impact on your knowledge, your consistency, and in the end, your effectiveness.
  • If you’re going to study, train, and apply yourself and enjoy the process, it’s more effective to be committed to on-going classes in an environment you love and crave. 
  • Creating a fun and open relationship with your teacher who can encourage and support you along the way is an amazing experience too. <3

What if I have physical concerns?

If you are worried about your pains, body limitations, or even how “in shape” you are…

  • Samantha has worked with many people who have physical limitations due to injuries, medical conditions, etc.  She can give you alternate moves.
  • This art form is for any “body” and you get to dance in YOUR body. Not someone else’s.
  • Always make sure you are cleared for physical activity by your trusted medical professional.  This will allow you to move with more confidence and make sure that you stay safe.
