Crystal Bindi Studios is Northern Michigan’s Adventurous Dance Community! We began our journey as a small
group of ladies learning to bellydance, and have evolved into a dance fitness facility which takes its model
from ancient cultures who nurtured a sense of community among women.
In its earliest form, Bellydance was an exercise to prepare the body for childbirth and speed healing afterwards. It was truly the world’s first women’s fitness program. Over many centuries and cultures, it became a fertility dance, and much later a form of entertainment. In our studio, we teach the art of Bellydance in its purest, most ancient form. Our goal is to inspire confidence and empowerment through the beauty of movement. We believe that through our uniquely developed classes, we can encourage women to feel beautiful in the diverse bodies they inhabit - and remember that women’s bodies are supposed to jiggle.
Over the years, Crystal Bindi Studios has diversified to include other forms of dance; authentic Columbian Salsa, Argentine Tango, Waltz, Swing, etc. Our offerings include such cultures as Polynesian and Indian and disciplines such as T’ai Chi. We teach several forms of Bellydance from Middle Eastern to American, and we train everyone from beginners to performers. We even include trendy fitness classes such as Zumba®, and some of our instructors are personal trainers as well.
We are not a gym; rather we are a studio which offers affordable specialty classes in a supportive atmosphere. We are more focused on creating a positive inner dialogue, and our approach to fitness is that if you learn to love yourself, you will treat yourself well, and make better choices.
Come discover the sense of community among women that our society is missing today and let us help you find that beautiful, adventurous woman within!
