Classes are from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM on Mondays at the Revolution Ballroom located in the Beaufort Town Center (K-Mart Shopping Center), 2121 Boundary St., Suite 207. The cost is $75 for six classes, or individual classes for $15 each.

Students are all ages with varying degrees of commitment to dance. Some come only for exercise and camaraderie, while others enjoy learning choreography so that they can perform. I create original choreography to a variety of Middle Eastern music. When my students and I perform, we are known as "Aladdin's Ladies".

What you need for class: Comfortable clothing that you can move around in but still see your body. We usually dance barefooted but you may wear dance slippers. Tie a colorful scarf around your hips - it is really the hips that are emphasized in belly dance. Almost everyone invests in an inexpensive coined hip scarf to get in the mood. I can lend you a scarf - I bring them to my special classes for everyone to try.
