Not Just Your Average Workout...

Who says fitness can't be fun? Belly Dance is designed to:
  • Invigorate your body through this imaginative approach to fitness.
  • Stimulate your mind and maintain motivation with dance technique and creative choreography led by a supportive, expert instructor.
  • Empower your spirit through improved self-confidence, no matter your age, weight, or coordination. Forge new friendships in our relaxed, friendly environments.
We want our clients to embrace all things feminine... As we like to say, “real women have curves... but a goddess knows how to move them!” ™

Message from Michelle
“It is so much fun to watch the transformation that women go through in just a few short weeks. When a session begins, some of the students are naturally tentative and somewhat quiet. By the end of the session, the hair comes down, the spirits go up, and friendships are made. They truly become goddesses in every sense!”
