I am leading FREE Bellydance classes remotely during these times of change.

These classes are free because we are all in this together! 

For those that are unemployed, or for those that are working day-after-day:

in hospitals, delivery drivers, in grocery stores, and so on.

I’m offering these classes online, so you can have a better life offline.

All levels welcome.

Register here!

During these uncertain times I will be suspending in-person classes.

I want nothing more than to protect and be cautious,

and I will be in touch with more information as it becomes available.

All class payments will be held and honored.

I appreciate your understanding and support.

Take care and be well.
