Ladies Only Parties:


Contact me if you are looking for a ladies day or night in party

I'll show you how to hip lift, drop and shimmy.  No dance experience necessary. This is a fun day or night out with the ladies moving to some fun music.  I bring hip scarves, the moves and the music, you pick your friends and the place. This is great for women of all ages.

No better way to have fun, exercise the brain and body. Tracy is a sexy and accomplished dancer and a fantastic and fun instructor for those of us of all shapes, sizes and ages. I am 67 and have never had so much fun!


Tracy, Thank you for teaching us this ancient art, while sharing your knowledge of the history of belly dancing as well.  You model respect to each and every student, and you make it fun!   Your warm and welcoming personality makes for a more comfortable environment for shy students.   This class has really helped me figure out where my body needs more attention, and where it needs work getting unstuck.


These classes have provided a getaway from my daily grind. A friendly community of women get together and bond while getting an excellent workout. I have definition in my upper abs for the first time in my life! Tracy is an excellent teacher. She knows how to break down each movement in many ways. She encourages us to learn to improv to the music so we learn early on to make our dances our own.

I have thought about taking a belly dancing class for years and finally did! I am so glad I signed up for Tracy’s class. She made me feel so comfortable even though I was really out side my comfort zone. I feel I progressed each week and I am signing up for another 6 weeks. This is great exercise and an hour I look forward to each week.

I decided to take lessons with Tracy as I love the way she expressed herself through her joyful dance. Her classes are always Welcoming & Tracy's instruction is informative, allowing for dancer's differences & abilities.Dancer's questions are answered, movements explained & weekly movement "drills" are like fun mini group dances!
I feel her classes have enhanced my own belly dancing, by enabling me to understand each isolated movement in more detail.
The camaraderie in her Class is something I look forward to each week!

Taking the belly dance classes with Tracy Risch has definitely been fun and informative - I have learned much about belly dance itself that I otherwise had no idea about! It also helps get me out of the house and moving - I had been interested in learning belly dance for a few years but didn't sign up for any classes til this year - I think I'm in my third session now. Even though it is still the beginner class I do feel like I'm still learning something every time I go.
    Tracy is great as a teacher because she explains all the movements in a way that the class can relate to - she makes the lessons fun and definitely not seem like a chore the way some exercise programs might. I would recommend taking her class if anyone is interested in learning belly dance!
