Put off your New Year's resolution to be more impulsive by committing to a 12-week dance course. With today's side deal, you'll get to shake your snake charmer in belly dance classes at Joy of Motion Dance Center. You'll get 12 consecutive weeks (beginning the week of January 4) of Middle Eastern dance lessons for $90, a $180 value. Shimmy into one of Joy of Motion's Atlas, Bethesda, or Friendship Heights locations. For scheduled class times, click here, choose World Dance, then choose Belly Dance: Winter 2010 at $180. Each session builds on the week before, so by the end of 12 weeks, you'll walk away with new dance knowledge that may catapult you into dance superstardom alongside Fred Astaire, Jennifer Lopez, and Betsy Ross.

Belly dance, or raqs sharqi, is a Middle Eastern dance style that combines elements of several cultures and styles. It will have you undulating and posing until your scarf-clad hips gain the power to hypnotize onlookers. Over the course of 12 weeks, you'll work with Joy of Motion's fun and motivational teachers to build upon what you've learned, moving forward with fun and freeing movements and possibly tiny finger cymbals—not to be confused with potentially inflammatory finger symbols. Wear dance or exercise apparel that allows your body to move freely and tie on a hip scarf to accentuate your hip drops, figure eights, and boom sha-booms. If you already have some belly dance under your belt, your instructor may permit you to start off in a more advanced class.

Joy of Motion Dance Center

Since 1976 Joy of Motion Dance Center, a nonprofit arts organization, has strapped on its ballet flats to kick down the doors that traditionally bar people from learning dance. Since then, it’s won two Mayor’s Arts Awards, one for Excellence in Service to the Arts, and the other for Outstanding Contribution to Arts Education. In 10 studio spaces across three different locations, instructors teach adult and youth programs, and lead an outreach initiative that gives disadvantaged kids the chance to learn dance with free classes or merit-based scholarships. Additionally, the center holds performances and showcases where students and patrons get a taste of professional performance without having to become zombies.
