No fancy dance-wear required; wear anything you’re comfortable working out in! Belly dance is traditionally done barefoot. You do not have to show your belly or perform, unless of course, you want to! Dancers ages 10 to 70+ have taken our classes; so, seriously, you are not "too old"! Bring a friend, or just show up and make some new ones! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
