Phenomenon Studios brings something absolutely unique and refreshing to bellydance as you know it. If you want to be challenged to be your best, gain a supportive community, and ESPECIALLY if you are late night, blinds closed, dancing in your living room kind of person…welcome home. Phenomenon offers a wide range of classes for both adults and children including Bellydance Fitness classes (BellyFit), Bellydance Technique, UNMATA’S Improvisational Tribal Style (, Choreography, and many more! Our goal at Phenomenon is to spread the joy of dance to people regardless of age, size, walk of life, or level of dance experience. We strive to promote healthy lifestyle, community, and open minds. Phenomenon is home to two performing companies: national performers Phenomenon Dance Company, and Risarious Dance Company (our student company coming in 2013!), and hosts many educational, training, and performance events including The Annual “Big Show” that brings together members of Springfield’s greater dance community in order to create the city’s first ever Theatrical Bellydance show! If you’ve always wanted to dance, we encourage you to come try it out: One of Artistic Director Brittney Laleh Banaei’s favorite sayings is: “If you don’t fit in anywhere else, you probably belong here with us.”
