COVID-19 Precautions

While we are happy to be opening in Green Phase, we are still being very cautious. Our list of safety precautions includes:

  • Everyone wears a mask at all times in the building
  • Class numbers are limited to 5 students max to ensure social distancing during class
  • Anyone feeling ill stays home (missed classes can be made up at no cost)
  • No-touch temperature checks will be given – anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or more will be unable to attend class
  • Street shoes remain in the private hallway
  • Hands are disinfected before entering studio (sanitizer is supplied at studio door)
  • Drop-ins are not accepted at this time (all students must be pre-registered)
  • Surfaces will be disinfected before classes
  • One door will be for entering, one door will be for exiting (to avoid grouping in hallway or stairs)
  • The studio now contains a “3 Filter Stage True HEPA filter” air purifier to help offer the purest air possible
  • In the event of another lockdown, classes with Lurainya will continue online via Zoom at their regularly scheduled dates and times.

Frequently Asked Questions

LEVEL 1 & 2 (Beginner)

No prior dance experience necessary. Level I introduces the beginner to the art of Bellydance. Basic Isolations are covered, with strong emphasis on posture & technique. Students will receive Level II material once they can properly execute Level I material. (Levels are often combined in one class and split into two groups that night. Level 2 dancers will work on fine-tuning their skills and layering different isolations as prep for level 3. Lurainya works well challenging those who are ready for more, & keeping it simple for those just starting out.

LEVEL 3

This level is much more challenging and moves at a faster pace. Expect to spend at least three full sessions in Level 2 before registering for this class (unless you have teacher approval).

LEVEL 4

Must audition and receive teacher approval.

Lurainya’s Dance Style

All classes listed above teach Lurainya’s style of “American Fusion”. She fuses characteristics from both Cabaret and Tribal, while keeping focus on control of technique and posture. To hear what Lurainya’s students have to say, visit the Comments and Reviews page.

Drop-ins

Currently not accepting Drop-ins due to COVID-19 precautions, all students must pre-register.

Drop-in fees are $25/class paid at the beginning of that class

Make-ups

This policy is currently not enforced due to COVID-19 precautions. If you need to miss multiple classes due to feeling ill, you can make them up.

One make-up pass will be given to each student at the start of the session and may be used at any of the listed locations. Make up passes will expire at the end of that session. You may also give your makeup pass to a friend as long as it is used before the expiration date.

Refunds

Due to COVID-19 precautions, anyone finishing the session for you would need to be screened and approved by Lurainya first.

Refunds are not available. If for some reason you find that you can not finish out the session you may find someone to take your place.

Observing

Due to COVID-19 precautions, you MUST make an appointment and answer screening questions before observing a class.

If you are unsure about signing up for a session contact Lurainya to make an appointment to stop in on a current session to observe the class in action.

What to wear

Wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement. Skirts, tights, sweatpants, T-shirts, and tank tops are all acceptable. You do not have to bare your belly. But keep in mind the more Lurainya can see of your body, the more she can help you to execute proper movements.

Shoes

Soft soled dance sandals are preferred
Bare feet or socks are acceptable
Sneakers or shoes are not recommended unless for medical reasons
