Bedouin Beats in an inspiring place that has warm people, (who often have a cup of tea ready for you on a cold day), fantastic clothes and most important, amazing and fun instructors!"
I've taken classes at a few different studios (both in Edmonton and elsewhere in Canada and the US) and Bedouin Beats, by far, meets and exceeds what anyone might look for, in both the dance classes as well as in a sense of community. The comradery that comes so naturally with being a part of the Bedouin Beats family is something I've never experienced anywhere else. This coupled with the knowledge and enjoyment you encounter in the classes themselves is something that cannot be explained in words but must be felt first hand to comprehend. I highly recommend coming in to sign up for any of their classes, as they're all exceptional, or even just to enjoy their ever-growing dance supplies. Thanks to Denise and the rest of the ladies at the studio, now that I've seen what a true dance community should be I can't see me going anywhere else!
Well for starters I have been there for the whole journey of Bedouin Beats. Denise LeClaire (proprieter) has done a beautiful thing for women. When you walk in you feel warm, welcome and home. You have found a place of love, belonging, freedom, and expression.
I have done a lot of growing, and laughter in those walls in the short time she has been here. Denise will get you involved & a part of the place from the moment you arrive.
She helps many artists with a space to call home and many women with a place of acceptance.
It is my salvation every week.
Come shop, dance, laugh, love, belong and be a part of.
It is home !!!
