Hipline Fitness Program
The Hipline Fitness program is in one word, "FUN"!
We know that the biggest challenge to reaching your goals is the motivation to show up.
Day and night, we are bumpin' the latest hits while our high-energy, dedicated instructors bring you easy-to-follow, sexy and feminine movement that does not require any dance experience.
We are seeing great results from clients achieving their fitness goals thru our signature classes Shimmy Pop!™ (dance cardio) and Shimmy Pop™ Toning (body sculpting). Taking a combination of these classes will help you with your weight management, improve your overall muscle tone and muscle to fat ratio, and improve your strength and posture. You will definitely leave Hipline walking with a little extra strut in your step!
Hipline Belly Dance Technique Program
The Hipline Belly Dance Technique Program is dedicated to teaching the Arabic cultural dance known as "Raqs Sharqi" (Dance of the East). Our program teaches students how to dance to Arabic music as performed in countries such as Egypt and Lebanon.
Our program is a combination of our weekly drop-in Belly Dance Drill class, Shimmy Flow and our Belly Dance Workshops. Shimmy Flow is there to give you time to drill the movement into your body and the Workshops are a time to break down the movement to properly execute it when you are in Shimmy Flow.
Our award-winning instructors are seasoned professionals who are constantly working with teachers from the Arab world to bring students the latest moves and music for this ever evolving art form. Learn more
Whether you know exactly what classes you want to take or you need to explore and try each out, one thing to know is we encourage a supportive space where women can let their hair down, have fun and be themselves.
We warmly welcome you to our studio and look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
