Learning to dance takes practice! Monthly memberships are by far the most economical and flexible choice for those wanting to take full advantage of our program. Offering 20 group classes per month, Oriental Phoenix Arts has created a membership to fit the needs of any aspiring dance diva. Memberships are ideal for students who plan to take at least 4 classes per month (or roughly 1/week), as classes are discounted. Students may choose from any available class times!
Please read our Membership Policies for all the details
We love to spoil our members with discounts, convenience, and extras!
- Flexible Schedule
You can think of your membership as number of classes per week, or as a monthly class allotment you can use any way you like within your membership month (autopay date to autopay date). So, if you go on vacation, you get sick, or you miss your usual class time, you can take any other class(es) on our schedule to make up your time conveniently within your membership month. Sorry, classes do not roll over into next month.
- Performance Opportunities
Ahlam Academy provides lots of opportunities to grow your dance skills through performance. Our “Beginners” curriculum teaches choreography to students every 1-2 months. As soon as you learn one of these choreographies, you are able to rehearse and perform that choreography in “Ahlam Student Troupe” performances at our “Jewels of Arabia” shows. We also have “Ahlam Dance Company” a professional Middle Eastern dance troupe comprised of more experienced Ahlam Academy students. Ahlam Dance Company performs at dance conferences, public and private events throughout Texas. Student soloists are welcome to perform in our shows too.
- Discounted Private Lessons
You will learn a lot in our classes, but sometimes you just want a little extra help and attention. Private lessons are a great way to get one-on-one expert advice to take your dance to the next level. OPA members get $10 off the regular private lesson hourly rate.
- Weekly “Practice makes Perfect” Schedule
Like any art, gaining skill takes lots of practice. Ahlam Academy introduces fresh dance content every SATURDAY and then repeats that content in every dance class of that type the rest of the week. For example, new combos are introduced on Saturday in the Beginner’s class and will be repeated in all Beginner classes that week.
- AAMED Certification
For those wanting the most well rounded Middle Eastern dance education,
Ahlam Academy offers two certification programs for Students and Teachers. For more information about our certification programs, visit AhlamAcademy.com/AAMED
- Discounted Studio Rental for Rehearsal
Don’t have enough space at home to practice? No problem! You can rent OPA’s studio for much less that you think. Please inquire about pricing and availability.
- Referral Program
We appreciate it when our members tell their friends and family about OPA programs. To say thank you for referrals, we offer current members $20 off one autopay (monthly membership fee), when a new member they referred has been an OPA member for at least one month. There is no limit on the new members you can refer!
