Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My approach to Bellydance is all about body awareness. I work with students on understanding body mechanics in order to eventually be able to layer increasingly complex, grounded and fluid movements. Wether your goal is professional dance or simply to enjoy a new hobby, classes are tailored to your needs!

Private classes are 30 mins-2 hours. The first half of class focuses exercises to help pinpoint the right muscles. The second half is on our feet performing drills and dancing!

My first class with Devon was amazing. She is very patient and pleasant. I was impressed with her knowledge and is a great teacher. I am looking forward to my next class.
