New Student Info
Need to Know
No matter what your punch card (example: 4 class pass, Groupon, unlimited month) you may attend any class you would like, whenever you would like to take it. No registration is necessary, except for specialty events such as Ladies Nights or workshops. Please "like" us on Facebook and check our website regularly to stay updated on class cancellations.
New to Dance Life?
Even if you aren't interested in belly dance, we recommend all new students start or supplement with Fundamentals classes for their first four to eight weeks. Unless you are an experienced dancer or dance fitness class attendee, Fundamentals will help you build the necessary amount of body awareness to help you be successful in all the rest of our dance and fitness classes. 
Find the Best Class For You
All of our classes are ranked by difficulty or intensity level. Whether it's dance or fitness-related, be sure to check the letter in brackets before or after the name to get an idea of whether the class is right for you. The scale is as follows:
(B) Beginner level or low intensity
(B+) "Begintermediate" level or mild intensity
(I) Intermediate or moderate intensity
(A) Advanced or high intensity
Cancellation Policy
We try to hold classes as regularly as possible, but sometimes life gets in the way.  If a teacher is sick or absent from the studio, we do our best to fill it with the same or a similar class. If we aren't able to do that, we try to offer any class we can so you can still get your dance or fitness in. In the event a class is outright canceled, we will post immediately to Facebook and the website, so be sure to check those out for the latest updates. If inclement weather is happening in the preceding hours before class, be sure to keep a close eye on Facebook and the website; Facebook updates are to the minute. As a courtesy to our customers, we try to contact regular attendees via email if a class is canceled less than 24 hours before it's scheduled to happen, so be sure we have your correct address if you would like to receive those notifications!
Registration Desk
Please check in at the registration desk prior to every class. If your contact information changes, please leave your new email, phone number, name or address should we need to contact you for class cancellations.

Help us keep things flowing with our plumbing by not flushing anything unusual like tampons and baby wipes
Shoes in the Studio
If you choose to wear shoes during class, please wear indoor shoes (or outdoor shoes that have been well-cleaned of any dirt) to keep the dance floor clean. Please do NOT wear shoes from the outdoors on to the dance floor.

Dance Life runs social media ads on everything from Groupon to Madison Perks to LivingSocial; only one social media coupon is allowed per customer, and these deals are currently only valid for customers who have never attended class at Dance Life. Keep an eye out in these newsletters for deals especially for our loyal customers, including the Dance-On, Middle Eastern Eggs, and product discounts.

Some people come dressed to the nines, some people come to bring something to the stage, and some come just to let their hair down and have fun. We socialize until 7pm, and then those who have signed up to do so take to the stage. Performers showcase a variety of musical, dancing, or comedy acts ranging from sexy to silly, from classy to raunchy.

Courtesy panties are required, otherwise no holds barred! You've never been to an event like this!

Besides just spectating, if you'd like, you may participate in any of the following:
  • -Join the opening Courtesy Panty Parade (wear whatever you like!)
  • -Bid in a live sexy auction, where we will offer you a variety of fun and sassy goods and services.
  • -Get up and dance during the "follow the bouncing butt" segment featuring our top burlesque fitness routines.
  • Play in one of our interactive games
After the performances end, we'll open up the dance floor for everyone to get loose and maybe even try some new moves.

To register, you have two options. You may purchase a ticket by clicking here and your registration and payment will be complete. If you'd prefer to avoid a ticket fee, register by sending us your name and pay in house, either before the event or at the door.

Come join us for a fun, low-key evening of dance purr-formances on Friday the 13th - meow!

A hafla is a relaxed event where men, women and children can come to have a good time, snack and chat with friends old and new, watch family-friendly dance performances by newbies and performers with years of experience, and let it all hang out on the dance floor.

Dancers and groups of all styles and experience are welcome. If you are interested in performing, send us an email to be added to the line up. This is a great place to try out performing in front of a supportive audience if you're a performance rookie. Not interested in performing (yet)? Come hang out, socialize, and enjoy the show - it's sure to be a paw-sitively meow-velous time! No registration required to spectate, please plan to purchase tickets at the door.
