Where do I go?

Classes are held at Evergeen Dance Academy, 2100 SE 164th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98683 (next to Big Lots). We are in the first studio, a beautiful space with marley floors, full length mirrors, high ceilings, and large windows. Please do not wear street shoes in the studio.

What do I wear?

All Nornir Belly Dance students are required to purchase and wear a studio uniform along with black leggings, pants or shorts.  The studio uniform consists of a studio t-shirt ($22) and a custom-made hip scarf ($40) payable through Venmo or cash. We dance barefoot, but ballet slippers or foot wraps are encouraged for sensitive feet. No street shoes allowed.

Check out our Studio Etiquette for a more detailed dress code.

What do I bring?

Water, yoga mat, finger cymbals, uniform, and any props you may need to help you during stretching (i.e. blocks, straps, etc).

I've taken belly dance before. Can't I just join your intermediate class?

All new students join Beginner/Level 1 class regardless of experience. The world of belly dance has many unique styles and variations of movement. Learning Nordic Fusion style from the beginning is required for class cohesion. Advancement to Intermediate/Level 2 only happens with instructor approval.

Can I get a refund?

There are no refunds. The full cancellation policy can be found here.

Can I hire your troupe?

Yes, please contact me directly for details.

What about community events and stage shows?

I love performing at community events and theater productions alike.  If you have an upcoming event you'd like to book Nornir and/or myself at, please contact me directly. Please include: date and time of event (including call time), type of event (community, charity, corporate, academic), performance length, and compensation package.
