Certification Listing

A simple listing of the belly dance certification courses available.

Are you considering a certification in belly dance ? This listing should help you find a course suitable for your needs. This is simply a listing, and does not include recommendations. I have included payment estimations and duration where possible. The listing is divided between on-line courses, US courses and "rest of the world". All the information is correct as of 11/1/17. If you have an update or new listing, please add them as a comment to the final page.
