7:00 - 7:30 Social time: During this time you will meet your instructor, change clothes if necessary, take pictures (we ask that you take pictures during this time in case there is another party immediately following yours), and prepare for the time of your life!

7:30 - 8:30 Beginner Belly Dancing: Party Tips: We suggest comfortable attire. If your instructor provides excellent service please feel free to tip.

Address: Mount Vernon Plaza 7702E Richmond Highway Alexandria, VA 22306
How to Find the Studio: 495 south towards Ft. Belvoir (about 4+ miles). From Richmond Hwy/Route1 turn into the shopping center (Bed, Bath & Beyond, Starbucks etc.) between the IHOP, Wells Fargo Bank and TJ Maxx. At the stop sign make a left and the first right. We are in the middle of the plaza next to the AT&T Wireless Store. The shopping center numbers can be misleading. Following the above directions will bring you right to us.

What should I wear to class?
You will need to wear something you can move freely in. Although it doesn't necessarily need to be skintight or show skin, it should be something that fits close enough to your body that your instructor can see what you're doing so she can provide feedback. Good choices are "typical dance attire," leotard and tights or "typical exercise attire," leggings and t-shirt etc. And, a *simple* scarf to tie around your hips is optional.

In general, classes are for exercise and learning; you will learn some basic moves and perform a routine at the end of the night. However, if you have some ethnic jewelry or other accessories that you enjoy, go ahead and wear them. They can help put you (and the rest of the class) in party mood.
It is also a good idea to have some kind of scarf or similar to wear around your hips. Triangular scarves with fringe work well, as do belts with coins.

What about shoes?
Some people may prefer to dance barefoot, which works fine. Or, soft ballet-type slipper.
I realize some people may have medical or other reasons to prefer a shoe with more support. That's fine also. The important thing is that you want a shoe that doesn't stick to the floor too much (so sneakers generally don't work too well). It's also good if you wear a shoe that allows your foot to flex; for example, a good jazz-type shoe would be excellent.
Where can I buy hip scarves and other costume items?
Sometimes you can find decent scarves in regular stores. Other than that, your best bet is to buy them from a vendor that specializes in bellydance items. You can also find stuff on eBay and Amazon.

$23 per person. All sales are final. ONLY 15 spaces available!!
