In-Studio Class Update as of March 31, 2021
The normal 12-week spring class session is canceled.  Nisaa is unable to accept new beginner students at this time.

Instead of the normal 12-week spring class session, Nisaa is offering a series of 4-week spring mini-sessions for experienced students.  The third and final spring mini-session will be a mix of in-studio classes and online classes via Zoom.

The normal 12-week summer class session is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of June 7.  Enrollment will begin in May.  Nisaa will once again begin accepting new beginner students at this time.  Nisaa will offer at least one “Taste of Belly Dance” class sometime in late May for those who would like to try a class before committing to a full session.

Please note that as in-studio classes resume, COVID-19 safety precautions remain in full effect, including mandatory masks in class (even for those who are fully vaccinated).  Nisaa is also strongly encouraging students to return to in-studio classes ONLY AFTER RECEIVING A COVID-19 VACCINATION.  You can read the COVID-19 safety precautions here.
