Ongoing Classes

Learn the beautiful art of Egyptian-style bellydance. Dance training with Ranya is geared towards dancers who want the full package – an appreciation of the movements, the music, and the culture of the dance. Her method focuses on developing poise, strength, and a “feeling” for the dance, integrating healthy use of the breath, musicality, artistic expression, and fun!

Students of all ages, genders, shapes, and sizes who want to enhance their fitness, beauty, and self-confidence are welcome.

Amateur and professional performers are supported with theatrically oriented workshop programming to enable each dancer’s character to shine through.

I’ve been teaching at the Flushing Y for (wow!) 15 years… Imagine my surprise arriving to teach this past Saturday (wearing many many sweaters) and finding that the promised brand-spanking-new studio is complete and fantastic!!!!! With amazing full mirrors. It was a dream come true! Soon we’ll have two classes per week there! Right now the Saturday class is 2-3pm but it will be moving to 11am-12pm for the new session… and then we’ll have another class (to be confirmed) probably Wed. evenings starting soon. The lovely Rayhana teaches while I’m out of town. Plans to work on some group choreo for performance too, so join us to get in on the fun!!
