Classes this year include the every popular Belly Dance For EVERY Body!, American Tribal Style Belly Dance – Introduction, and Advanced Belly Dance. Remember that all every body young, old, male, female, all shapes, sizes, genders, and colors looks good when belly dancing. So YOU are welcome to these classes. Come find out just how good your body looks.

Classes Are:

Belly Dance Is For Every Body! introduces participants to the ancient art of belly dance. Remember: If you have a belly, you can belly dance. :)

American Tribal Style Belly Dance – Introduction. America has its very own style of belly dance: American Tribal Style (ATS). ATS has set movements and group formations that allow for dancers who have never met, to dance beautifully together! This class for beginners and experienced belly dancers alike.

Advanced Belly Dance. This class is for anyone who has taken a belly dance class of any style - including one here at Gen Con including this year! You will learn a simple choreography and you can practice at home with yourself and others. Nothing makes you happier than belly dancing! (Hey, it works for me and my troupe.)
