Belly dance and core fitness merge into RakasaFit, a fun and challenging workout to invigorating Middle Eastern remixes, engaging the deep core fitness that naturally exists in belly dance. Each combination drills one essential belly dance shape reinforced with core conditioning exercises, a structure that enables participants to think less about choreography and simply dial into movement quality. In addition to improved posture, toning, cardio, strength, and stamina, RakasaFit ignites creative energy and movement that supports all activities! More info and registration at


As a certified RakasFit instructor, I’ll lead you through an exciting one-hour workout. Complete with warm-up, intense cardio, and deep cool-down stretch. It’s so FUN!!! 😀 Also, you have the option to become a member online and access videos :)

Interested in learning Belly Dance?

Belly Dance, also known as Raqs Sharqi (Dance of the Orient in Arabic) or Oriental Dance, is of Middle Eastern and North African origin. It is still evolving in it’s homelands. There are many styles and fusions of belly dance all over the world. Many belly dancers study folkloric dances that also originated in the same areas. What I often perform and teach is known as modern American Cabaret belly dance and is what you may have seen in restaurants in the US.


Learning this dance can be exhilarating! It’s a wonderful way to better appreciate your body (and all it can do!) while having fun and exploring a cultural art.  Being low-impact, it is gentle on the body as well.


Some benefits of learning belly dance are: improved core strength, more muscle control, better balance, increased knowledge, and joyful feelings of expression!

Private Lesson Rate is $60/hr + studio fee (will book an available studio nearby)
