Hip-Expressions

Hip Expressions Belly Dance Studio is a movement, a community, a collaboration - dancers, musicians, artists, yogis, students, professionals, and supporters, of all ages, shapes and sizes... all united around a commitment to community, wellness, and art. ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
Hip Expressions was founded in 2004 by Johanna ‘Xenobia’ and Karen Sun Ray, as a belly dance collective, dedicated to creating and sustaining a community of dancers. This started with weekly dance classes, and monthly showcases 'haflas', as a place for dancers to share their art and their passion.⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
In 2008 we opened our first studio on 62nd Ave. N, consolidating from classes taught in St Pete, Seminole, Tampa, and at USF, and adding regular Polynesian, Jazz, and Burlesque classes.⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
In 2011, Johanna took the helm as Director, as the Studio expanded into our new Center on 54th Ave nearly four times the size. Now we could serve even a wider variety of movement forms including being an expanding center for Nia in Tampa Bay!
