Earthy. Ethereal. Empowering… Belly Dance.

Expect the best at Arabesque. At Lexington’s premier belly dance studio, you’ll find a full list of dance styles to learn. Through our talented teachers, as well as visiting workshop instructors, you’ll have access to traditional and folkloric dances from across the Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean. All ages and fitness levels welcome. Classes for beginners to advanced. Additional class subjects include fusion belly dance, yoga and flow arts!

Class Attire and Supplies

It’s easier to learn a dance form if you practice in clothes that complement your movements and do not hinder them, so here are a few suggestions…

Wear comfortable exercise clothes such as a Unitard, Leotard with tights, or a Crop top/tank top and yoga pants. A colorful scarf or shawl to tie around hips is a must, and dance shoes are recommended to protect your feet, and prevent torquing of ankles and knees.

Students will eventually need a three yard veil and finger cymbals; this will be discussed in detail at class.
