Golden Isles Belly Dance
Golden Isles Belly Dance was founded by Elena Markina-Harrison, aka Lena Mikado, an author and belly dancer, back in 2007 in Raleigh, NC. Ever since then, Elena has been teaching at a number of amazing studios in St. Simons Island, GA, until she finally found her "dancing haven" in quaint downtown Brunswick.
Golden Isles Belly Dance is not just a dance school - it's a tribe. This is where girls and women of all ages and from all walks of life come to relax, unwind, wear a ton of sparkly stuff and have a lot of fun!
Our classes are held in sessions that consist of 8 classes during which we learn the basic and advanced belly dance moves, as well as a fun routine that you can show off to your friends (if you like). The classes are held on Fridays from 7 to 8 pm at the beautiful Golden Isles Ballet Company studio at 1312 Newcastle Street in Historic Downtown Brunswick.
In between the sessions, we also hold workshops that focus on learning how to bellydance with various props - veils, zills, fan veils and even swords.
