Visit a Class: You’re welcome to see a class in progress. (Be sure to introduce yourself to an instructor first.) You can see classes of various levels every hour Tuesday thru Thursday from 6:00-10:00 p.m.

Teaching Style: Each hour-long class is led by experienced, professional instructors, who will assist you and answer your questions. After learning the basics, you will begin to study actual choreography written by Habeeba, and performed by Habeeba’s dancers. Our style is informal, and the lesson plan varies according to the growing skills of the students in that particular class.

Our style is classical, traditional belly dance. You will learn to dance with veils, finger cymbals, also known as zills, tambourine, cane, fan veils, Isis wings, floor work, drum solos and much, much more. These techniques are not only great exercise, but a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends as well as get in touch with your sensual side!

You will not be rushed or badgered to learn quicker than your body will allow. Our comfortable atmosphere will encourage you to enjoy your lessons and your “time for you.”

Registration: Call, or visit the studio to pay a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $35.00 to guarantee your place in the class. We accept cash, check, Visa, or MasterCard and Discover. You’ll fill out a registration form on your first visit.

Tuition: Tuition is due on or before the first day of class. If you are a new student and will be absent the first day of class, you must contact us in advance to prevent forfeiting your place in that class. Since classes are ongoing, you need only pay your tuition (in advance) every 7 weeks. There is no need to re-register and you may continue as long as you wish.

7-week tuition payment – $110.00

After your second 7-week tuition cycle you are considered a permanent member of Habeeba’s studio, and you are eligible to practice as often as you wish in other classes which are below your level — for free — as long as you remain in your regular class and your tuition is up to date. The longer you are enrolled as a student, the more exclusive the choreography and techniques you will learn, and the more fun you will have.

What to Wear:

  • yoga pants, leggings, tights or leotards
  • fitted t-shirts or tank tops
  • dance shoes or socks
  • dark colors (so teachers can ensure that you’re learning the movements properly)

What NOT to Wear:

  • shorts, bicycle shorts, or sweat pants
  • street shoes or bare feet
  • bright colors (when you’re first starting out)
