MONDAYS: 6:45-8:00 P.M. Level II Technique & Veil Work with Amity Alize

TUESDAYS: 5:30-6:45 P.M. Level II/Intro to Level III Technique Drum Solos with Amity Alize

This class is geared to those who have taken Beginner I or have obtained instructor approval to transfer from other studios and instructors. In this class we continue to work on drilling movements while adding combinations, isolations, layering, and various dance steps in order to build you dance vocabulary. Please bring your zills (finger cymbals) and veil (loaners available at every class). Most people enjoy this level from one year to three.


TUESDAYS: 5:30-6:45 P.M. Level II/Intro to Level III Technique Drum Solos with Amity Alize

This class is for the serious student who has achieved a level II status. We'll work on individual growth while focusing not just on technique and drills, but different styles, props, history, and performance methods. All dancers are required to work on solos (whether you perform them out of class is completely up to you). You must be willing to take constructive criticism from your instructor work as a team player with your peers. Please note, in order to join this class, you must get instructor permission and take level II for at least two semesters. Minimum of 6 students in order to hold class


TUESDAYS: 7:00-8:15 P.M. with Amity Alize

Open to all dancers with at least some beginner class experience and above. Limited to 10 dancers per class. You do not have to perform to take these classes.

Session 1 (Jan-Feb): Sword Dancing

Dancing with a sword and its history is as varied as the folklore of where Belly Dance originated. Although rarely done in the Middle East, dancing with a sword can be seen in many individual and group pieces in Tribal Style, Tribal Fusion, and Vintage Orientale (American Cabaret) styles of Belly Dance. Difficulty Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate

Session 2 (March-April): Beledi Music & Progressions

The Egyptian word meaning “country” or “home” has become a dance style in itself. Known for its juicy, earthy, and less westernized staged performance style, a dancer’s personality can shine. We’ll cover the family of rhythms (Baladi, also known as Masmoudi) and variations and characteristics of what makes this style Egyptian by studying the culture from where it is derived from. Difficulty Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Session 3 (May/June): Egyptian Folkloric Dance: The Hagallah

Hagallah is one of the least known folkloric dances from Western Egypt. A celebratory dance with Beduin roots, the dancing is characterized by clapping, swaying hips, and smiles! Difficulty Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate


Gain priceless individual feedback and instruction. Experienced dancers know that you can learn more in an hour of one-on-one with an instructor than you can learn in many group classes. For dancers at any level, take advantage of this time for personal feedback & constructive critique, specific style study, performance dynamics, dance history, and technique cleanup, bringing your dance to the next level.

For your benefit, we highly suggest that you complete a private lesson/personal assessment before moving to a new class level. This will help you target your goals, strengths, and weaknesses.
