Fun classes where students will be learn the exciting movement vocabulary of Oriental Dance (aka Belly Dance) through safe technique, practice variations and combinations, and be provided with cultural and historical context for the dance. Instruction is always tailored to the needs of the students; all levels of experience are welcome!

Register for the same class each week for $45 per month (4 classes), $85 for 2 months (8 classes) or $125 for 3 months (12 classes).

Or, move between the various classes with a multi-class drop-in card. A 3-class card ($45) or 5-class card ($65) is good for 2 months, or try a 10-class card ($120) which is valid for 3 months. The class-card option is great if you have an irregular schedule, or know that you can’t come very week, but want to carry classes over between sessions (if your schedule is really irregular, we can even be flexible with the expiry dates!).

Single drop-ins are $20 per class. If you try a drop-in and then decide to keep coming, we’ll apply that $20 towards the cost of a session registration or class card.

Full details about all the class options, plus online registration, are available on the classes page of our website www.duniyastudio.com/classes.htm.

Jehane, Cathy and Taheya look forward to dancing with you!

  2. Congrats to all involved. As a performer I liked the lights panning the audience , made it less of a BLACK VOID. As an audience member I thought the decor was nice, the sound was good , the intros to the point with little down time between numbers. As always a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in Belly Dance, and it’s many offshoot fusion styles, to strut their stuff. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
