Arms and Hands in Egyptian Belly Dance - Spring 2021 Online Class Series!
In many classes and workshops, arms and hands don't get the attention they deserve, despite being a very important part of the Egyptian belly dance tradition. Join Nisaa for this class series focused exclusively on the aesthetic and technique of arms and hands in Egyptian belly dance!  Offered online via Zoom.  Visit here for details and registration!
In-Studio Class Update as of February 27, 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 current mini-session is taking place online via Zoom.  At the end of each mini-session, Nisaa will re-assess whether the next mini-session will take place online or in-studio.  The plan is to be back to in-studio classes by June.

The normal 12-week summer class session is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of June 7.  Enrollment will begin in late April or early 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 May for those who would like to try a class before committing to a full session.

For private students, please note that private lessons will shift back to an in-studio format at the same time that group classes resume in-studio.

Please note that when in-studio classes resume, it is very likely that COVID-19 safety precautions will still be in full effect, including mandatory masks in class.  Nisaa will also be strongly encouraging students to return to in-studio classes ONLY AFTER RECEIVING A COVID-19 VACCINATION.
