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.
February 2021 marks the fifteenth year for Crystal Bindi Studios. However, due to the multiple shut downs and small business restrictions by executive order of the Governor of Michigan, we are currently changing the way we do business. We will offer our most popular classes only, such as Bellydancing and Cardio Drumming. Instead of having one studio, we are offering classes in multiple settings. Please visit our Facebook page for more information on where and when we will hold our classes.
All bellies welcome!
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.
