Learn to belly dance in 8 sessions
for the absolute beginner
Introduction to Belly Dance is our multi-week, online course for absolute beginners in the basic technique, rhythm, and choreography of belly dance—called raqs sharqi in Arabic, oryantal in Turkish.
We've modeled this virtual dance course on our live-drumming, in-person workshops. The interactive video lessons along with the course guide and sample lesson plans make the course ideal for teens, adults, and seniors of any gender who have little to no dance or music background, a moderate fitness level, and an eagerness learn!

”It opened my eyes to how I can take a dance and do it to any kind of music. And it was because of doing it with just the drummer and following him. The drummer challenges us. You feel that energy.” —Pam B.

Belly Dancer Pam Benton shares her thoughts and experiences with us in a multi-level belly dance workshop.
Our goal is for you to experience a transformation—whether you are a beginner learning belly dance for fun or studying it rigorously to become an accomplished belly dancer. We want you to feel the emotion of the music and portray that in your own authentic way as you learn the skills, technique and culture of belly dance.
