2022 in-studio & online classes
June-July 2022

Come and see for yourself what everyone is talking about! We're Grand Rapid's only specialty school for Bellydance! Get inspired. Feel feminine. Build confidence. Embrace your body. Learn a new art form. Get in great shape. Connect with new people and make friends. Shimmy isn’t just another dance studio, it's a place to belong!


ShimmyUSA (formally known as BellyDance Grand Rapids BDGR) has two locations. We are located in Uptown Grand Rapids between East Grand Rapids and Downtown. We have a beautiful 2000 square foot space with 30ft of mirrors on the 2nd floor of the Blackport Building. Our second location is inside the home of owner & artistic director Sarah Mayne, in Rockford MI. Sarah has 700sq ft of sprung hardwood flooring and wall to wall mirrors.


Our students tell us that they are blown away by how much self-confidence they gain when they begin to embrace their body while learning the world's oldest dance.
