Classes this year include the every popular Belly Dance For EVERY Body! and American Tribal Style® Belly Dance For EVERY Body! 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. :) Any body can belly dance - and that means you! It doesn't matter how old, big, small, or shaped your body is, YOU can belly dance and look GOOD! Belly dance is an ancient art form that strengthens, stretches your body and puts a smile on your face. This class will introduce you to the basics of belly dance. All ages are welcome but we ask that younger children have an adult with them. Wear comfortable clothing and join me for a wonderful time.

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance For EVERY Body! 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.

SPECIAL FREE EVENT: Move It & Lost It! Margaret of DDBD works at the School of Public Health-Bloomington. Her colleagues are offering Move It & Lost It! a FREE seminar where you can learn quick and easy tips to increase your movement, improve your health, and decrease your waist line. This workshop will offer an introduction to physical activity and health for all ages and abilities. There will be hands-on and participatory activities and demonstrations to help you, your family, and gaming friends stay healthy. (The longer you live the more demons you can kill.) SPECIAL BONUS: First 25 attendees get a free pedometer!
