At Wild Garden Bellydance we pride ourselves in providing a well rounded dance experience that is full of thoughtful instruction that includes proper body mechanics, history about our dance form, an enriching group environment as well as fun and exciting lessons. 

We recommend that you start with the style you feel most drawn to, there are no right or wrongs.

We want to foster an environment that is both challenging and encouraging all the while assisting students in becoming the dancers they want to be.  To do this our Leveled program of classes begins at the foundation of each style and builds both in technique and stylization as students progress. 

Not sure what the differences between Folk Fusion Group Improv and Modern Folk Fusion are? Read more below.

Folk Fusion Group Improv is where our dance form originated. Blending FatChance® Bellydance style with other movement dialects from other groups, this style has an earthy feel and is about a group of dancers working with a set movement vocabulary that allows dancers to create dance in the moment without choreography. Dancers use the vocabulary and body language to communicate through dance. 
See an example here:

Modern Fusion is a more contemporary interpretation of this earthy style. Combining the techniques of  FatChance Bellydance,Datura Style, Hip Hop, Classic Westernized dance, and American Cabaret Bellydance to create a style that is serpentine, smooth, and a bit on the funky side.
