Aegela Centers for Middle Eastern Dance 1700 N Reynolds Rd, Suite 203 Toledo, OH 43615

Class Policies


Be comfortable! Any clothing that will not restrict your movement (shorts, t-shirts, leggings, sweats, leotards) is fine. You may wish to tie a scarf around your hips to show off your movements. We dance in bare feet, socks or soft-sole dance shoes. Street shoes may not be worn on the dance floor.


Come prepared to have fun! As well as learning to dance, it’s a time to focus on YOU. Leave the stresses of work, family and the world at the door.

Referrals and Discounts

Refer a friend, receive $5.00 in Belly Bucks (studio “cash”) toward classes or merchandise per enrolling referral. Tuition discounts are available for multiple members of a household. The first enrollment is at full fee, and all others from that household are at half fee. Discount does not apply to Specialty Classes.

Additional Classes and Make-Up Classes

Students may make up missed classes by attending any of the other classes compatible with their skill level during the session. Credit for missed classes cannot be carried forward. Refunds are not given unless a class is cancelled.


At the instructor’s discretion, parents/friends are welcome to observe the class; however, the class is for women only and not a spectator sport for male guests. Participation requires registration. Please do not bring small children to the class.

Cell Phones/Pagers

Cell phones and pagers must function in a silent mode.

Social Networking Sites

We respect our members’ privacy. It is the policy of this studio that contact information and/or photos of a member are not released without the permission of the studio member. This includes, but is not limited to, any internet social networking sites.


In the event of inclement weather, you may contact us by phone at 517-918-9547 for an update on class cancellations, if any. A Level 2 weather alert automatically cancels Toledo classes. Your personal safety is primary, so please do not risk injury to yourself or others if road conditions in your area are difficult.
