Class Schedule

IntermedClassCome join us at EDE, Gainesville's and North Central Florida's first belly dance school. Because Gainesville has an ever changing population, we have an open-registration policy and have designed our classes to be flexible so new students can join at any time and keep studying throughout the year. We try to begin new classes at the start of UF's and SFC's school terms (August/September, January, and Summer ABC).

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 and weight goals.
