  2. I have stretch marks and feel like I absolutely can’t show belly. Can I still learn? Any suggestions…

      Hi Erin!
      First off, many belly dancers have stretch marks! Belly dance embraces all body types, especially at a recreational level. You will find people of all types and ages in our classes. One of the beautiful things about belly dance is that, through community support, many people find new confidence in their bodies.
      However, you don’t have to show your belly to learn, or even perform belly dance! In class, you could wear leotards or wear a fitted shirt that covers your tummy. For performance, there are several types of dresses that can be worn rather than a two piece costume, such as a beladi dress. We also use body nets that come in shades of nudes and colors that are worn under the costumes, and these are effective at hiding stretch marks. I wear them frequently at family restaurants.
      If you are interested in belly dance, I hope that you will pursue it, and embrace your body the way it is. 🙂

      Hello! Yes I will let them know!
      Would you be interested in bringing them to the studio? Sometimes we have people bring things by the studio for a week or so for people to look and and buy. I might be interested in some of the CD’s and hip scarves.

    I am looking for an instructor I met at a yard sale two years ago… I bought a purple bellydance outfit and a fairy costume at her yard sale. She gave me her card and said if I was willing to perform, I could have free lessons. I am now back in the area and would love to pursue this. Here’s hoping I’ve reached the right sight!

      Hi, there!
      I don’t believe that was me, but if you are interested in free lessons, I do often trade lessons in exchange for volunteering at events. We encourage even our professional dancers to take class, and continue to learn and improve and to support the community of local teachers! Learning dance is a lifelong journey. 🙂 Hope you find the person you are looking for, but you are always welcome to join us!

    Hello. I’m a 60 y. o. transgender and would love to start taking lessons to improve my feminine moves and body language. I don’t want to disrupt classes because of my gender so I’m wondering if there would be a problem. It would be both my wife and me taking classes…and we’re neither in the best shape, physically.
