In today’s bellydance world, you have an abundance of dance genres and sub-genres to choose from and pursue. Each style has its own distinctive ‘brand’ of bellydance moves, music, costuming and audience. Personally, I find that there is something to appreciate and learn from every bellydance genre.

Within all the variations and evolving styles of bellydance,  it all begins with the basics. And the basics are ISOLATIONS - upper and lower body isolations. Add some shimmies, hip-bumps and pops, and you're on your way to create your own interpretation of how you want to bellydance.
