Summer Schedule

The Summer is upon us and have I got a wonderful schedule of classes available for you!

Are you looking for a chance to unwind after the work day, shake those hips, and get those arms moving in majestic and ethereal ways? There are two possibilities you could embrace. On Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:30 pm, join us in Agoura Hills at Wild Card Dance Studios on Roadside near Kanan Road and the 101 Freeway. Or come out to Club NEMA in Oxnard on Friday nights from 7:30-8:30 pm, on Oxnard Blvd. at Five Points (next to the CVS).

If Sunday afternoons are more your style, join us in North Hollywood from 2-3 pm at the Madilyn Clark Studios on Burbank Rd (the little studio with the fairytale carriages out front and on the roof).

All the classes are available for the same tuition price: $15 for a single class drop-in or $50/5-class dance card (which makes each class $10). Your dance cards are good at all three locations, so you can take class more than once a week on the same card. Each class is geared toward the skill level of those who come to class. Nearly all the students are Level One dancers, studying Fundamentals. Come join us to build your Fundamentals ATS bellydance skills.

Are you interested in processing into Level Two? I am available for private lessons and custom workshops  for several dancers together. Do you have aspirations to dance with props? Let’s talk about ATS with Props and how to start building your skills for these additional challenges.

In all things, I ask for just two key rules in my classrooms: (1) No Pressure , No Shame — and (2) This Body, This Day.

Sundays in North Hollywood, 2-3 PM
