The UMass Belly Dance Club is a Registered Student Organization at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Our goal is to teach students about the origin and technique of the beautiful art of belly dance. Our pieces reflect the diversity of belly dance styles in existence while honoring its traditional roots of western ballet and numerous folkloric dances. Each semester, we explore different variations of belly dance from around the world. All levels are welcomed and no experience is necessary. We also do not hold try-outs!
