WOW!

DGLA '3 for Free' Program!

DanceGardenLA has some of the TOP Bellydance instructors in the country… dare I say the world?? But each teacher is unique, so, how do you know who YOU jive with? Which teacher speaks to YOU? What style are you into? Do you even LIKE bellydancing??

Now you can find out at no risk with our 3-for-free program, for NEW customers ONLY*

You will receive a card on your first visit that allows you to try THREE of our Beginner Bellydance teachers. We'll hang on to it for you and mark it off as you go — then whenever you are ready to purchase a class card (whether you have tried ONE teacher or all THREE, that’s up to you!) we will offer you a pretty insane deal on our 5 or 10 class cards (might as well just go for the 10, you don’t get offered this deal every day!) that are good for ANY regular DGLA class, so you can come back and pursue your new passion!

Just check our Calendar to see when our Free Trial classes are on (as of Jan 2018, Mondays 6:30, Thursdays 7:30 and Sat & Sun 9am) and come on in! Free class schedule is subject to change without notice, but the Calendar is kept obsessively up-to-date, so be sure to check there first.

*Sorry, Groupon/Living Social folks, you are already getting an *amazing deal*, so no free classes BUT you will still get a chance to purchase a class card at our highly discounted New Student rate when you finish your Groupon classes!

*And, NOT sorry, faithful existing customers, because you will get your chance during our annual Customer Appreciation sale, lucky ducks! ;)

Lecture

All About Bellydance: A Beginners Introduction to Bellydance History and Culture with Jenna and Zahra Zuhair

Sunday Oct 28, 2019

Where does bellydance come from? What is that music I'm hearing? How do you become a professional bellydancer? Who are these famous bellydancers my teachers keep mentioning? If you have wondered any of these things, or if there are other topics you are curious about that aren’t presented in your weekly bellydance movement classes, this is for YOU!

If you haven't wondered about these things, well... perhaps you should! Bellydance is a dance with lots of cultural roots and regional nuance, and this will just open up the doors to a world full of interesting information, history and cultures!

$25 early bird by midnight on 10/19 • $30 after (online or door)
