Who we are....

Crystal Bindi Dance Studio began with the goal of facilitating positive transformation, both physical and personal, through the freeing art of dance. This fun and adventurous dance community is about gaining wellness from the inside out. Now through a new partnership with Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation, all classes benefit Gilbert Lodge at Twin Lakes. We offer a new and fun way to come play in your parks today. Listen to the rhythms of live drums or just the peaceful sounds of the lake as you relax and enjoy!

OUR NEW LOCATION AND PARTNERSHIP....






 

About the Studio


Penny Morris began belly dancing in 2003 to help her lose weight. While watching her mom shimmy in the living room, Adrian decided she wanted to be part of this new "hobby" her mom had discovered.

What began as a personal interest for Penny, became a shared experience for her and her daughter, an escape for a grieving mother, and finally a pillar of strength for an emerging business woman.

Penny began the studio to honor her daughter, Adrian, who was lost in a car accident in 2004. Penny had the opportunity to watch her quiet daughter blossom into a beautiful young woman through the confidence given to her by belly dance. To honor their shared experience and Adrian's transformation, Penny began Crystal Bindi Dance Studio, a dream of Adrian's, to help other women find themselves through dance and community. The studio was named after the jewel Adrian wore on her forehead, which has come to symbolize the infinite hope that no matter what happens in life, great joy can still be found within ourselves. 

Penny is now retired from Studio ownership, but continues to teach and act as program facilitator at Twin Lakes' Gilbert Lodge in the newly renovated lower level.


What We Offer

In addition to a wide variety of daily classes, Crystal Bindi offers a continuum of opportunities to explore the cultural aspects of dance through workshops, costuming, and choreography, as well as community open dances.

Our dance and exercise community also benefits from an exclusively designed sprung-wood bamboo dance floor that absorbs the shock which joints can typically experience on conventional hardwood floors. 

The newly renovated lower level studio offers rentable studio space at very reasonable rates. We also offer the opportunity to hire our teachers and performers for your own event starting at $125. Please call or email for pricing!
