Let’s Dance!

Belly dance/Raqs Sharqi is more than just a dance; it's a celebration of movement, music, and cultural expression. Come and grove to joyful and captivating music as you build core strength, flexibility, grace, and self-esteem. This dance form celebrates women no matter their size, shape or age. I believe in teaching you the tools of the dance so that you can express yourself through movement and celebrate you!

Yalla, come dance with me!



"Being taught by a good dancer is not enough for me. Being a native Egyptian, and a dancer, I need a teacher who is able to breakdown the flaws in my technique, correct it, and make me a more graceful dancer on stage...I found this combination in Zulaika ..."
