Belly Dance is a beautiful cultural art and you will be learning from a professional performer who specializes primarily in Arab style belly dance AND who is certified by ACE Fitness.
Students are active learners and to this end Samira will provide feedback along with lots of encouragement. The focus of this class will be enjoyment, feeling great with movement, enjoying your body in movement, encouraging each other in class, relieving stress and also supporting an incredible important cause.

The classes will develop organically with Samira leading the way. Multiple level students will be taught in the same class. While one may be learning a technique new to them another will be refining and adding layers or using it as a drill.
Samira has been teaching fitness and movement since 1986. This healthy movement background is combined with her knowledge as a dance major in addition to her knowledge and experience as a full time belly dance performer for over a decade.
Her unparalleled background combines with her desire to see her students flourish and grow toward their goals.

Samira also offers private classes to intermediate through professional level students as well as mentoring sessions.
These classes can be in person or via Skype. Call or email for details.
