Welcome to Hourglass Bellydance!

I'm glad you are here! My name is Lorrie Pierce and I am the owner and director of Hourglass Bellydance. I want your experience at Hourglass to be a positive one, so here is a little information about classes.

The first time you come to class, please arrive about five or ten minutes early. I will ask you to sign a short release which will also serve as your registration form should you decide to continue. You can consider your first class a try out class. If at the end of class, you decide it's just not for you, the fee is $10, but if you would like to continue, you are good to go.

Wear anything you can comfortably move and stretch in. Students wear all sorts of things like stretch pants, leggings, tank and crop tops, etc. We usually dance barefoot, but if you would like to wear a sock or dance shoe, that is fine as well. I provide coined hip wraps for in class practice.

If you are new to belly dance, you will begin with a twelve week start up series called the Fundamentals of Bellydance. Please click here for information about those classes.

Our studio is located between Airline and Nile on South Padre Island Drive, across from Century 16 Theaters. The address is 6500 SPID, Suite #19.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give me a call at 361-946-4052 or email me at lorrie@hourglassbellydance.com. I do so love this dance and look forward to sharing it with you!
