Adult dance lessons?

Does anyone have any experience taking dance lessons in New Orleans? I'm open to the type of dance; I'm really just interested in doing something new and fun.

Specifically, does anyone have any experience with classes at the Crescent Lotus Dance Studio? I was thinking maybe their dancemeditation, hip hop, burlesque or poledancing classes might be fun (crescentlotus.com).

Also, has anyone ever heard of Dance New Orleans? They have a website that hasn't been updated since '07 it seems. It looks like they offer(ed) less expensive dance lessons as a way to promote the arts (dnoinc.org).

Suggestions for dance studios or courses would be much appreciated. FYI I have ZERO dance experience, so I'd be looking for a beginner class.

Dance New Orleans (and their dance center Dance Quarter) is phenomenal. I cannot recommend them highly enough. You can also pick up lessons on Wednesday evenings at the Spotted Cat (5:00 pm) for free.

I used to take belly dance and latin fusion at crescent lotus. They're awesome.
(hurt my knee in sept so I had to stop for awhile)

I've found that crescent lotus tends to have specials that they don't advertise so you should email them and ask if they have any dance card specials going on right now. When I was going regularly they were running 10 classes for 100.

I used to take flamenco lessons with Krys at Crescent Lotus (this was before Crescent Lotus, tho) and I can say she is awesome (although she doesn't do flamenco anymore because of injuries).

If you're interested in flamenco, contact Michelle Paule at New Orleans Dance Academy or Leticia Jimenez at Ann Burr Dance Studio. I've been doing it for almost ten years. We took a massive hit to our community after Katrina and it's only just now recovering. We could use new blood, even beginners!
