Our intent is to have fun and enjoy dancing together! We have students that range anywhere between 10-70 years young! And the levels span from very beginning dancers to intermediate/advanced. Our styles encompass mostly American Cabaret/Egyptian-Style Belly Dance and Fusion. We focus on learning isolations, short combos and group choreography. We also teach you how to use dance props like veils, zills, canes, or swords to apply to any style of belly dance!! No dance experience necessary just a desire to learn! And the Goddess Studio has hip scarves and veils for you to enjoy too, if you don't have any yet!

About our Instructors...
Dancing since the age of eight, Elena is known for her exciting performance, personality and grace. After training in Ballet, Jazz and Modern, Elena began studying Belly Dance in the late 1990’s and quickly found her true passion for dance! She is an outstanding entertainer and has appeared with Dance Troupe Nujum al Raks.
With a degree in Liberal Arts, Elena’s classes focus on physical awareness, stage presence and interaction with Egyptian-Style dance props.
Thea is a local North County Belly Dancer who first saw and fell in love with Belly Dance in highschool of 2009. She has studied under local dancers such as Elena "Hypnotizing Hips" and Amalya at the Goddess Studio, Bedora Noire, and Talia Jewel. She has also danced along side Talia for 2 years as a member of The Oriental Jewels, a professional San Diego based belly dance company.
Currently, she is focusing on developing her own very unique slow and fluid Fusion style of dance. She feels very blessed and honored to be here and hopes to share with you her love for this beautifully expressive dance and the community that surrounds it.
Amalya has been delighting audiences since 1993 with her graceful interpretations of Middle Eastern Oriental dance. With early training in ballet, tap, and Hawaiian dance, then modern and jazz, Amalya has discovered her unique expression of movement in Belly Dance.
Her repertoire embraces various styles of dance including, Egyptian, American Tribal, Turkish, Moroccan, Gypsy, East Indian, and Sacred Feminine. Her performance experience encompasses formal solo concert presentations, troupe dancing, informal "cabaret" performances and sacred dance celebrations. Her specialty is the veil dance but she is also versed with sword, candles, fan, and cane.
