Weekly Belly Dance Classes in Vermillion

Weekly belly dance lessons will be available in Vermillion! The first class begins March 2, 2014. The belly dance classes are on Sundays at 5:00 pm at the University of South Dakota Wellness Center, 1031 N University, Vermillion, South Dakota. Belly dance class is free for USD students and members, but non-students can pay at the front desk. The classes are only $5, and new participants need to present a driver's licence at the desk. Punch cards can be purchased for a discount, thus making the classes only $4 a lesson! This is incredibly affordable because it's on campus!

Each class will be unique and independent, so drop-ins are welcome. Participants don't need any previous experience because new movements will be taught in each class. Weekly combinations will only use movements covered in those classes. There will be a lot of drilling, which will help the dance steps move into muscle memory for beginner belly dancers. The drilling will be beneficial for experienced dancers to help polish steps and build stamina!

Wear comfortable clothes, feel free to bring a scarf to tie around your hips, and be prepared to have fun and work hard! (Dance shoes are recommended, but socks are okay to wear too.)

If you live within the Vermillion area in Siouxland, feel free to check out this class. It's not too far of a drive from Yankton, Dakota Dunes, North Sioux City, or Sioux City to belly dance!
