Classes in American Style Belly Dance

This is a style of belly dance that is an amalgam of various ethnic styles originating from many countries of the middle east which were adopted and blended into what is known as the American Cabaret Style.


I offer three  8 - 10 week sessions per year

     Fall session starts in September

     Winter session starts in January

     Spring session starts in March/April


All classes meet at Yoga for Health Studio

267 Main Street, Townsend, MA

Upstairs from PC Lan and across the street from Cliff's Cafe and the Town Hall.  Park on the street or in front of building.  It's OK to use the PC Lan parking spots.


Payment can be cash, check or PayPal.


    Try out your first class for FREE - no obligation!


What you will need for class:  Wear clothing that you feel comfortable moving in such as work-out or yoga wear.  We dance in bare feet - or you may wear socks or dance slippers if you prefer.  No street shoes in the studio.  Bring a hip sash if you have one, but don't worry if you don't - I have plenty to borrow for use in class!


Advanced beginners will need a set of zills (finger cymbals)
