What You'll Get

In the Ottoman Empire, belly dancers acted as spies, shimmying past oblivious guards and using long, flowing scarves to rappel down palace walls. Today's Groupon lets you embody the intrigue and danger of the discipline while getting a great full-body workout: for $18, you get three consecutive weekly classes of introductory tribal-fusion belly dance from Memphis Raqs, a $45 value. Intro to Belly Dance classes are offered Thursday and Saturday mornings and Thursday evenings at the airy, comfortable MidSouth World Dance Center, a studio built specifically for belly dance inside the Walnut Grove Office Garden. Check out the class schedule for start times. This Groupon must be redeemed within four months.

Tribal-style belly dance shirks strict choreography and instead emphasizes smooth improvisation and spontaneous group collaboration. Memphis Raqs blends elements from tribal-style with moves and costuming from Asian, African, and even modern American dances. The outcome is a unique, glittery harmony between individual and group expression.

In three weeks, you'll learn the basics of muscle isolation, dance posture, and basic choreography. You'll come to feel the whole of your body as never before, rippling and flowing from fingertip to hip. Most importantly, you'll get a taste of the supportive community bond that tribal dancers forge with one another. Weekly classes are capped at 10 to ensure you'll get plenty of individual attention. Memphis Raqs's passionate instructors welcome dancers and non-dancers from all levels of experience and ability, from those who leap, loft, or spin themselves to work, to those with three lead feet.
