Learn the dance that celebrates the strength and beauty of the feminine spirit.

Troupe Hipnotica™ classes focus on the use of improv choreography within Tribal Belly Dance.  Both classic movements and unique derivatives of ATS are taught with an emphasis placed on posture.  Each level features a different set of movements as well as a double staged format that utilizes both sides of the body. All classes include a yoga inspired warm up and a low impact workout that helps strengthen the core.

Classes are run on an on-going basis. Drop-ins are always welcome. Join Troupe Hipnotica's™ mailing list to get information on upcoming workshops and class additions/updates.
