Welcome to Eastern Fire Belly Dance
classes taught in two suburban Chicago locations: Naperville and Elgin
At its core belly dance is a folkloric tradition of movement. It's historically danced and taught by women for women: mothers to daughters, aunts to nieces. We come together to celebrate and nurture feminine strength and spirit.
People are saying nice things about their Eastern Fire experience:
"Grace is a fantastic teacher, and I adore working with her! She keeps it fun, engaging, and most of all, low pressure. I feel totally comfortable with her and I'm so glad I found EFBD!"
"Taking ATS® classes with Grace is one of the most exciting hours in my week! As a woman, I have reclaimed a form of sensuality and confidence that I never knew I could have. As a dancer, I am more flexible, balanced and fluid. And if that isn't enough, I am proud to say that I am part of a community with strong, beautiful and intelligent women"

"I used to dance as a kid and in college; ballet...but I never felt it was quite "me." Then I discovered belly dance! It's awesome to be able to dance in such a supportive, energetic, and non-competitive environment! I look forward with great excitement to my classes with Grace each week; she keeps us motivated, moving, and laughing!"
