This beautiful Middle Eastern dance is highly recommended for people of all ages and sizes who want to have fun and participate in a low-impact aerobic exercise. In Shake, Rattle and Roll with Bellydance, learn hip shimmies, graceful arm movements, fun traveling moves and more. Every class will include a combination of movements to form a short dance. No dance experience is necessary. Those with a background in bellydance are also encouraged to take this class because it's great exercise and a lot more fun than the gym.

Bellydance Troupe is for those who have taken Shake, Rattle and Roll with Bellydance or who have equivalent bellydance experience. Dive into the deeply mysterious world of layered shimmies, body waves, finger cymbals and more. You'll learn at least one short combination in every class. At the end of the course you'll know at least one complete choreography.

Classes are on a weekly basis at various times of the year. Also available are special workshops usually held on the weekends: Veil Fun, Bellydance for Moms and Daughters, Bellydance for Scaredy Cats (for first-time dancers who want a short introduction), Bellydance for Kids and more.

Bellydance can also be offered as a one-time workshop at festivals and conferences. It's great exercise for anyone, especially singers and professional speakers because it strengthens the diaphragm and improves overall health. It's also fun for everyone! Jamie has offered dance workshops at the National Women's Music Festival, Michigan Women's Music Festival, Golden Threads conference, at employee fun days and others.
