  • Jingly hip scarf for each

  • Moroccan tea ceremony

  • Rhythm Beledi lesson

  • Belly dance lesson

  • Live drum accompaniment

  • Sparkling beverage

Here's What We'll Be Doing

Tea & Jingly Hip Scarfs

We open with a Moroccan-inspired tea ceremony as we tie on our complimentary hip scarfs and learn fun belly dance words in Arabic and Turkish.

Beat, Beledi & Basic Steps

Then we learn to belly dance!  We start very simply so that even if you might think that you "have no rhythm," your body will be dancing before you know it. We learn the quintessential belly dance rhythm that Bob plays on the doumbek, and I teach you the basic steps of belly dance. We progress at a pace tailored for you as we build our dance with shimmies and undulating moves.

Bubbles & Bellies

Finally, we celebrate your new skills with a sparkling beverage (prosecco and/or our homemade soda) and Middle Eastern style refreshments as we give you a classic belly dance performance.

”What a joy you bring to so many who may not be comfortable with their bodies or with dancing in front of people.  You show how natural it is to not just women, but men and families as well.”  —Leslie S.
