Middle Eastern Belly Dance


Belly Dance

What are the words that come to mind when you think of Belly Dancing? Revealing? Unconventional? Maybe even exotic? Those that practice this ancient art form might actually choose words such as: Feminine, Empowering, and Controlled.

Belly Dance is for all shapes and sizes, and has many physical benefits such as coordination, isolation, improved posture, as well as strengthening and toning of the core, arms, back, legs, and hips. There are also many mental and emotional benefits including promotion of self-confidence, creativity, and community. Making it a wonderful activity for overall health of the woman's body. Be well, inside and out

Dawn started dancing in 2010, where she found a passion unlike any other. Her intuitive approach brings forth a style that is engaging and encouraging while creating an environment that is positive, relaxed, and fun!
