Middle Eastern Belly Dance is dedicated to women celebrating the joy and beauty of a centuries old dance form. Ayperi-Alizarin is a passionate and caring professional Middle Eastern belly dance instructor. She is a Middle Eastern entertainer and choreographer, who seeks to inspire and impassion others through this expressive dance.
Ayperi-Alizarin has the keen ability to recognize and meet the unique needs of each individual student and welcomes women of all ages, sizes and abilities to unleash their inner creativity in this safe, fun and supportive environment.
You are never too old or young to start belly dancing!
Middle Eastern Belly dancing is primarily taught as a low-impact fitness activity and is an exciting alternative to other exercise or dance programs. There is a reason why this centuries old dance is still used to promote natural fitness, and a healthy body image. Course curriculum includes the basic fundamental moves of belly dance. In addition, students will be introduced to the various props used in Belly Dance. These include; veils, canes, finger cymbals and more. The instructor will advise students in locating these props in addition to coin hip scarves to use in their own belly dancing.
Recommended class attire is tank tops or t-shirts with yoga, sweat or exercise pants. No shoes are required.

Bellydance Class Policies (Not applicable for the HVCC location).
HVCC sessions operate under the guidelines of the college.
Inclement Weather Policy
If bellydance classes are canceled due to inclement weather, information will be posted on my website, Facebook, or by e-mail. For safety purposes, cancellation of bellydance classes will only occur if the weather is very bad.
If you are concerned that bellydance classes may be canceled, please check the above sites and your email account.
Ayperi-Alizarin Bellydance understands that due to schedules, vacations, work, etc that you may not be able to attend every bellydance class. It is my goal to accommodate students the best I can, while also maintaining the integrity of my bellydance classes ( i.e., the amount of students in a bellydance class at the appropriate size).
Each student will be allowed one free make-up bellydance class per session. In order to utilize your free make-up bellydance class, you will need to contact me at least 24 hours in advance to advise me that you will not be attending your regularly scheduled bellydance class time. "No shows" are not offered make-up bellydance classes.
If you do not attend the bellydance class you are scheduled to make-up, and do not notify me 24 hours in advance that you will not be attending, you will lose your free make-up bellydance class.
If you need to make-up more than your one free make-up bellydance class, there is a $10 fee for each additional make-up bellydance class you attend.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Prompt payment reserves your spot in a bellydance class or a bellydance workshop. I accept cash, personal checks and credit cards payment through Paypal.
The mission of Ayperi-Alizarin Bellydance is to provide a supportive, nurturing, and fun environment for all women, students and staff alike, to explore the beautiful art of bellydance for both fitness and confidence building.
My commitment to my students is to provide a safe women-only studio environment, free of men, spectators, and minors. My class is open to all women who want to learn an alternative fitness form. I respect my student’s and my studio’s privacy and integrity.
Ayperi-Alizarin Bellydance strives to offer personalized attention to all students and therefore, limits bellydance class size. Payment in advance guarantees your spot in a bellydance class. Registrations help to determine which bellydance classes to run, and if another bellydance class should be scheduled. Many times a bellydance class or bellydance workshop may fill and other students are turned away for lack of studio space.
Therefore, I do not offer refunds for unused bellydance classes or refunds of any kind. If you are unable to attend your bellydance workshop or series of bellydance classes, I ask that you contact me at least 48 hours prior to the start date of the bellydance class. A studio credit may be extended to you for future use. Please note that once a bellydance class, or bellydance workshop has started there are no refunds or credits issued.
I thank you for your support and cooperation.
Private Dance Lessons
Private bellydance lessons are great way to receive personalized attention. Private bellydance lessons are approximately an hour long in length.
I also offer semi-private bellydance lessons for two or three women. Private bellydance dance lessons must be pre-paid, as you are reserving the studio space and time with your bellydance instructor. Private bellydance lessons must be canceled 24 hours in advance to avoid losing your payment. Please contact me about private lesson rates. Periodically, men do participate in my group bellydance sessions;however, under no circumstances do I offer private bellydance sessions to men.
