Class content: Movement exercises and practice of dance concepts and belly dance through dance games. I teach an exciting and playful class, but the participants are also guaranteed to learn important dance concepts and belly dance movements! I create the choreography to be flexible for the little ones but structured for those who are ready for it. Choreography notes and an opportunity to video the choreography also provided. To register, contact me and I will reserve your spot or add you to the waiting list, should we reach capacity. ~ Jillanna Babb

Opportunity to be a leader, to follow someone else's lead, to create freely and within guidelines. The girls become friends, make up their own dance names, and get to wear pretty sparkly costumes. They also learn cultural context, Oriental dance styles, rhythms, props, and more. Jillanna's teaching style is supportive, fun, and creative.
Jillanna also offers Private & Semi-private lessons, Parties, and Camps. As mother of two girls and an impassioned, experienced teacher, she especially enjoys teaching children to belly dance. Her fun teaching style is tailored to the ages of the girls in her classes, which are limited to eight students at a time to facilitate learning. The games, toys, and coloring pictures included in the classes add to the joy and excitement of each meeting.
