Our Values


We aim to teach and enrich our students the essence and traditions of bellydance, as well as modern inspirations. Dance is a journey and we are here to be a part of it.


Every dancer has an opportunity to grow and become a part of an ever-changing dance company. We value new ideas, choreographies, and expressions of dance. We strive to collaborate with our dancers and artists.


We promote the wellbeing of each student as they learn to strengthen and condition their bodies. We also hope to be an outlet for positive self-image, celebrate femininity, and empower spirit. 


We are a community that embraces each other's skills and talents. We seek new opportunities every year through participating in local events and gatherings. We open a space to interact socially, feel inspired, and build lasting friendships.
