2021 in-studio & online classes

Classes Resuming on March 1

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!


Shimmy GR is 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 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.
