ABOUT THE CLASSES:  In class you'll learn traditional

Eastern music... and while your hips are shimmying you'll

dance.

Most importantly you'll have fun & get fit in a friendly,
supportive atmosphere.


Anyone is welcome to audit a class for free...you'll soon
realize why this dance has been enjoyed by thousands of
women over thousands of years...  


WHY DETROIT BELLYDANCE?  Belly Dance is low-impact,
but tones the whole body.. You don't need prior dance
experience.

combinations, choreographs and gain skills to design
solo dances to develop your own style. Lana also

we take class seriously, but the class is always tone is

PRIVATE CLASSES FOR SMALLER GROUPS OR
INDIVIDUALS:

WHO CAN DO IT? Anyone! Belly Dance, known as Raks
Sharqi or Middle Eastern Dance, can be learned at any
age. Students of Detroit Bellydance have ranged from
ages 5 to 92 years old. What's even more beautiful isyou
can be any size or shape. Curvy women are celebrated in
this
dance.
I  tell new students "give me three weeks and your hips
will be moving like you never imagined possible!"  


WHAT TO WEAR: Be comfortable.  Stretch pants, yoga
pants, shorts, etc. Wear something you enjoy, even long
skirts! Shirts can be tank tops,cholis, etc.  For your feet:
barefoot, flexible sandals, dance shoes orballet slippers.
Gym shoes aren't the best because they're heavy and
clunky and this, afterall, is a feminine dance!

Shows: Weddings, zeffas,  parties, theatres,
nonprofit galas, nightclubs, festivals, corporate
events, lesson parties & more.

Show Offerings: The lights begin to dim. The
sound of the violin fills the air. Moments later a
single dancer (or maybe more) enters the room.
She spins with power as large lighted, sparkling
dramatic fabric wings  grab the attention of the
audience. Colorful whirling fabric, fire trays,
swords, wooden bamboo sticks, finger cymbals,
flowing fan veils, hips moving to every beat
covered in couture designer costumes. And even
on occasion, flamenco dancing fused with
Bellydance for something different halfway into
the show! Before it ends, joyous music brings the
audience on their feet dancing with the dancers
making it impossible NOT to smile.

Working with Lana: One or multiple dancers
perform to recorded music, or, live musicians like
percussionists, singers, violinists, oud and kanun
players. Packages for various budgets.
