Bellydance classes are fun and rewarding, allowing you to gain a new skill set, become more comfortable with your body, develop an appreciation of Middle Eastern dance, music, and culture, and meet new friends. All classes provide a safe and inclusive environment for students to learn bellydance and are open to people of all sizes, backgrounds, and genders, age 13 and up.

One and a half years ago, I attended a beginner bellydance class by Sahina. I really wanted to learn how to bellydance but had no idea what to expect and was unsure if I would be able to keep up. At the end of the class, all my uncertainties were completely put to ease: Sahina is a fantastic teacher who truly cares about the success of each of her students. She has the ability to assess where a student is in their dance development and then provide them with the appropriate tools to succeed. Her classes are always fun as well as informative: Sahina has a wealth of knowledge on the cultural aspects behind bellydance. I have attended many more classes with Sahina since then and wouldn't have it any other way! If you are looking for a fun way to work out, meet new people, and learn about new cultures; I highly recommend taking one of Sahina's classes! -Kathy L.
Private and semi-private lessons are available for students who wish to have a more focused learning experience. This can be a great way to get extra help with in-class material, work with solo projects and performance skills, or fine tune your dance technique. The cost is $50 per hour plus a studio rental fee which varies based on location. Please call or email to schedule a private lesson.
Sahina is available to teach workshops on a variety of topics. Please visit the workshops page for further information.
I missed a class in the middle of a session, can I make it up?
Unfortunately there are no makeups for missed classes since the material in the other classes is different.
Are students provided with performance opportunities?
Students are given the option to participate in student showcases, which usually occur twice a year. This allows the students to have a safe place to perform for their family and friends so they may share what they have been working on in class. There are also occasionally performance opportunities at community events throughout the year.
