Shimmy USA - West Michigan's School for Middle Eastern Dance since 2006

Come and see for yourself what everyone is talking about! We're West Michigan's only specialty school for Raqs Sharqi (Oriental Dance)! 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 usa (formally known as BellyDance Grand Rapids BDGR) is currently operating from Rockford, MI in the home studio of owner/Artistic Director, Sarah Mayne. We have a beautiful 700sq ft of sprung hardwood flooring and wall to wall mirrors. We are located in the lower level with private dancer entrance.


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.
