Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a list of our most commonly asked questions in regards to our classes here at Rising Moon Bellydance. If you do not see the question you are curious about here, please send us a message through our contact form or feel free to call or text us 519-495-4265 with your inquires.

What should I wear to class?

We suggest that you wear comfortable workout clothes such as yoga pants/capris and a tank-top/t-shirt. Wearing layers is recommended during the winter months. No shoes are required for our classes, but you are welcome to keep socks on so long as they are not slippery.

What should I bring to class?

If you own a hip scarf you should bring it with you to class. If you do not own your own hipscarf then you will be able to use a loaner scarf during class.

We sell brand new hipscarves through our store! You can find them here.

Make sure to also bring a water bottle so that you can stay hydrated.

We are only open during class times. On Wednesdays from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm and on Fridays from 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm. During the summer, on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Is there an age limit on classes?

We do not have an age limit, and our students vary in all ages. Our only requirement for age is that all younger students are able to follow directions during the hour long class.

Do I need to be fit to take the class?

Bellydancing is a fantastic way to get exercise, and does not require you to be in tip-top physical shape to participate. However, if you have any injuries we highly recommend that you consult with a healthcare professional before taking the class. Please be sure to mention any concerns prior to starting the session so that we can better accommodate you.

What if I miss a class?

We do not offer make up classes if you were to miss one. We do however post weekly choreography videos for practice and reference that goes over everything that was taught during the class. A link is sent out to our registered students.

What is the class format?

Our classes begin with a warm-up routine followed by a shimmy drill. We continue the class with steps and drills. Starting on the second week of the sessions we begin to work on combinations that are used in a choreography. The class ends with a cool down and stretching routine.

I have taken classes before. Should I sign up for the Beyond Beginner class?

It is recommended that you start at the beginner level even if you have taken a class before in order to assess your skills. If the class is too basic, you can switch to the beyond beginner class at no extra registration fee. If you feel that this applies to you please contact us beforehand.

How many beginner sessions should I take before I move up to beyond beginner?

Taking a handful of beginner classes before moving to the beyond beginner class is the best way to become comfortable with the fundamental steps and with learning to follow choreography. 

What is your Refund Policy?

If you feel that this class just isn't for you, or if you are no longer able to attend the class after signing up, you can be refunded your registration fee in full provided that you contact us before the third class. Any cancellations after the third class will not be eligible for a refund.
