Picture of DDBD's Class  schedule at Gen Con 2015

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.

Class Schedule: Note that the rooms may change so be sure to check your Gen Con schedule.

Yes we take Generic Tickets! :)
