Studio Spotlight: Beledi Global Dance Studio

Veils, skirts, jingling coins—when it comes to world dance styles, Beledi Global Dance Studio has it all. The Traverse City studio is a hot spot for global dance moves, offering classes in many forms of dance. Bonus: All the dances are great for your health—so for those who loathe the treadmill, exercising just got a whole lot cooler.

Take belly dancing (beautiful and sensual, yes, but also a great low-impact aerobic workout)—Beledi offers beginning and intermediate belly dance, tribal belly dance and belly dance boot camp, plus a boutique filled with jangly, silky costumes. Belly dancing not your style? Beledi also offers classes in clogging, salsa, banghra (Indian hip-hop), African dance, Hula-Hoop dancing/aerobics and burlesque, among others.
