Learn To Bellydance

Bellydancing is a great way to get exercise, broaden your cultural understanding, make friends, and feel good about your body! Emalee teaches classes to a diverse group of students and YOU would be a great addition to her classes! She currently teaches online classes for intermediate/advanced dancers, but is available to schedule private or private group classes for any level. Emalee has a private Facebook group for her students to ask questions, watch tutorial videos, and review class content. 

Upcoming Classes

Sword Choreography Workshop

Dancing with a sword is always a crowd favorite! Showing off your isolation skills while using a “dangerous” prop will be sure to leave your audience impressed. During this workshop you’ll learn sword balancing tips- both for the sword and your own center of gravity- and come away with a full choreography. 

Notes and video provided, in person attendance or online! – Full recording provided for all who register!

I first found out about Emalee when I saw her perform. She dances with incredible precision, beauty and joy. I love taking belly dance lessons from her. She teaches technique in a way that is easy to understand and provides a very positive and supportive environment. By focusing on refining the moves she helps every student be the best they can be.

“I went to Emalee’s fan veil workshop in Duluth and had an excellent time. Never having done fan veils before I found her instructions on the holding and use of the fan veils very good. The length of the choreography was perfect for the time of the workshop so as not to be overwhelming. I would attend another workshop with Emalee.”

Debbie P.

“I have taken classes with Emalee for a little over a year. I find her to be precise and knowledgeable in all aspects of bellydance forms and choreography. She is encouraging and I have always felt good after a class.
