Rosa's brand new website is coming soon... But you can reserve your spot in fall classes now!

This new season calls for a new approach. I'm excited to offer an array of in-person, online, and hybrid classes in adult ballet and belly dance this fall.

All in-person classes require masks and proof of vaccination (both, not either/or). The safety of our entire community is my first priority, always. In-person students *can* attend via Zoom any time. Class recordings are available to all pre-registered students, so you can make your own schedule!

Most classes will run in 4-week sessions this fall. When you sign up, you get much more than the class itself!

  • Live class attendance (in-person or Zoom options, depending on the class)
  • Class recordings (make your own schedule!)
  • Written class notes, optional homework suggestions
  • Related links, videos, and other resources
  • Access all of the above via Teachable for easy review
  • All class videos and notes are available until a week after the session ends.

How much are the class sessions?

  • 4-week sessions start weeks of September 11, October 17, and November 14. Join any session!
  • Regular pricing is $75/four-week session
  • Save $10 on all sessions till Wednesday, October 13 with code RAQSOCT !
  • Save $45 by signing up for a package of three sessions. And, yes, there is a payment plan!

Shimmy Time and Floor Barre will remain as online-only drop-in classes, with a 6-class card option available to save $30+.
