Welcome To Arabesque

The mission of Arabesque is to to give Chicago a choice; to open its doors to uncommon dance forms, and give adults an exquisite place to learn that's a refuge for them alone. To utilize the art of Oriental Dance to enrich the lives of its studentship and community through local and national dance performances as well as through weekly dance instruction. Our goal is to help each student find the genuine dancer within - with their own natural body movements, as it embraces all shapes and sizes, any fitness level, age, or race without regard to any preconceived notion. To bridge the gap between dance professionals in an open and friendly atmosphere. We promote our new generation of belly dance with Beauty, Dignity and Grace.
