Learn Raks Sharqi (belly dance), a dance with roots in the Middle Eastern folklore that includes undulations, vibrations and sharp accents. In this dance, different parts of the body are moved independently and layered to make a unity. Every part of your body will participate, from your toes to your fingertips, your head and also your heart, as you develop body awareness and coordination. Regardless of your age or body type, you can learn something from this dance.

If you know what your level is, just scroll down to register. Otherwise, here are some guidelines to help you find out.
If in doubt, please ask! Sometimes I recommend taking two classes for a month, one inferior and one superior level, to fill any gaps while still challenging yourself, or at least to gauge which one is the best level for you to stick with at the present time. Admission to a certain level is ultimately at my (Seyyide’s) discretion (I will certainly make the recommendation that I think works best for YOU, me and your classmates).
