Weekly and specialty movement classes  take place in the niad studio located at 1801 Rutherford Rd, Greenville, SC, inside of building 1 unless otherwise specified.

Classes are currently offered as a hybrid of in-studio with a very limited number of spaces, and virtual live class through our private zoom room. Please contact Jaidra for more information about signing up for virtual classes. 

Contact me for private lessons, small group lessons, workshop hosting, parties or choreography work. I offer dance and movement classes, workshops, choreography services, private and semi-private lessons and more.


Bellydance 100, 200, and 300 level and specialty classes change on an 8 week basis. Please read my class FAQ section for more information. Payment is due at the first class of a session.

Movement Classes

Weekly Sessions

Most of our classes are offered as 8 week sessions. These include Bellydance technique, choreography, prop and specialty topic classes, Poi spinning, theatrical movement, and more. 8 week sessions allow students to spend time in their bodies with an unfamiliar topic and begin to develop familiarity with the movements, strength, flexibility, and more while providing a semi-structured learning environment.

Sessions are open through the first two weeks and then close to new students (drop-ins in some session classes are available only for students who have completed multiple sessions and wish to continue honing their technique. Drop-ins are not available to anyone if the class fills). Each session class builds weekly on the information previously learned. New sessions start each month. Please check our calendar and upcoming classes to plan your dance journey!

Sessions cost $90 for 8 weeks (discounts available for students taking multiple concurrent sessions)

Drop-In Classes

We offer a selection of drop-in classes for students who are unable to attend full sessions. The Balanced-Mind-Body track offerings are our fitness, meditation, and expressive movement classes and are open at any time to new or continuing students for a drop-in cost of $10 per class.

Drop-in dance classes are limited to those classes that do not build functionally on the artistry and technique learned each class. Some dance drop-ins are restricted to advanced students who have already completed the sessions required. Please ask if you are unsure. Dance drop-ins are $15 and are noted in the class description when available.

Movement Clinics

Movement clinics are small group classes offered on a one-time basis that are designed for continuing dancers who wish to increase technical ability in specific topics. Similar to a workshop, movement clinics are limited in size in order to allow for a more personalized learning experience. Check our calendar regularly for upcoming movement clinics.


We offer workshops in multiple specialty topics with our resident and guest instructors. Workshops are a great way to try out a new dance style, increase your current knowledge, hone technical skills and artistry, and gain experience.

Please follow us on Facebook and check back in regularly, as workshop offerings will continue to change and expand at the niad studio.
