I’ve been teaching the beautiful art of belly dance for 22 years and performing for over 30 years. My students have gone on to become world-renown professional performers and teachers. Within the first two months, you'll know how to move your torso with sensual undulations, figure 8's, shimmies and learn proper posture and arm movements. As time goes on, you'll be able to perform at benefit shows and student shows.

I specialize in Egyptian style dance, have written two dance therapy books and have instructional DVD's and an online course available as supplementary materials. I have the following tools available for your lessons: a private dance studio, finger cymbals, drums and a wood floor. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

I hold ongoing, multi-level group classes, Tuesday nights from 6:15-7:15 PM. $45 for, four one-hour group classes. Or just, $160 for four, one-hour private classes

Wonderful Teacher

Delia is an inspiring teacher. I can tell she really enjoys teaching and helps students gain in confidence. I have learned a lot of songs from Delia because she is patient, very encouraging and fun. We laugh a lot during our lessons and this is a rare gift.
