Classes Offered at
Ethnic Dance Expressions
School of Belly Dance

Come join us at EDE, Gainesville's and North Central Florida's first belly dance school. Ethnic Dance Expressions offers belly dance and aerobics classes. I have been teaching students to belly dance in Gainesville for 24 years but I am getting ready to close the studio. Our last class will be on February 16, 2024.

You can come to class whenever you want although it helps to get into a routine. Think of your dance and exercise classes as a gift you give to yourself. You are encouraged to come to at least one class a week so you will see continued progress and won't become discouraged. The more classes you attend, the quicker you will learn to dance or reach your exercise goals. For the Class Schedule...
