                                    ...Bored with your Routine? Try us out!  New Students Welcome!


Our friendly, supportive dance studio will satisfy all your needs for creativity, community, fun, and fitness!  We have a wide range of options for staying interested and involved. 

Belly Dance
- what puts us on the map, we're one of the largest centers for belly dance in Florida if not the entire Eastern Seaboard!  Classes can be just for fun, or fitness, and performance opportunities available - but certainly not required!  Start with the Basics, then explore different flavors, Tribal, Egyptian, and more!

Nia - Our 2nd most popular classes, I like to say, if Yoga could dance, it would be Nia!  This class is for ALL levels, take it at your own pace, combining modern dance, martial arts, and tai chi for a free-form cardio experience that will move your body - and your heart!

Polynesian - Those pretty Island Girls make grace look EASY - but in fact it's a challenging workout! 

Burlesque - Join us to explore your femininity - and it's *just* naughty enough!

Jazz - This is a non-nonsense ballet-based Jazz class, ideal for those who have had dance training.  Nostalgic for the good ol' days of training from your youth? Come home!

Samba - Fancy footwork, Feathers, and no-frills drills get your inner showgirl to shine!

Club Dance 101 - the Twerkshop, yes, really.  SWEAT it out on the dance floor to your favorite hits and twerk it baby!

5 Rhythms SWEATS - Ecstatic dance, this is a session with NO instruction, find YOUR voice, your feet, your path, and sweat your prayers...

Yoga - Take it inward a notch, slow down, and breathe... 

...Need something new we don't offer?  Email us at, and let us know!  We'll see what we can do!

Types of Classes:

Ongoing Classes: On our Class Schedule page, drop in and out any time, but keep coming consistently and see what happens!

Class Series: A set Course with a beginning and an end, often with a focus such as our Belly Dance for Beginners, or a Choreography with a performance opportunity

Troupe Class: We have several troupes (Belly Dance, Polynesian, Tribal, and Samba), ask the instructor how you can get involved!  It usually takes several months of training in a particular style before you have enough knowledge, skill, and technique, but let the instructor know that's what you're working towards and go for it!
