Hello! We are Sultry Shimmy, a locally owned belly dance troupe and school in Rapid City.  We teach and perform 5 different styles of dance: the iconic Cabaret, Egyptian, Tribal, Turkish, and Spanish-Fusion.

***Ask about our Gift Certificates for classes or workshops for Christmas gift ideas***




Our troupe has been performing in the Black Hills area for years. We dance with a variety of props, including veils, zills, and sword (some of our more popular ones), so guests never get bored. We will work with you and your entertainment budget to tailor our performance to your specific needs. Large venues, small venues, nothing is too mundane for the fun and light we bring!





Looking for a new, unique activity for your organization?  Why not Belly Dance? We offer one time classes in 2+ hour increments where we come to you and teach your group this dynamic dance.  Belly dance is great for any body type and any age.  The slow, rhythmic motions help strengthen core muscles, loosen stiff and sore joints and relieve back pain while the faster beats get the blood pumping and improve flexibility and posture. Our instructors inject fun and laughter into our classes so that before they know it, guests have learned a new skill, strengthened their bodies and have had a great time doing it.



If you have any questions about class schedules or would like to schedule a meeting, performance, or workshop, please call or email.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
