Belly dance at Ahlam Academy is addictive! Anna is a fantastic instructor – she explains the moves clearly, and peppers classes with cultural and historical facts about the dance. Her classes aren’t just exercise, although you will get a good workout! You’ll learn dance routines, work with props such as veils and zills, and won’t even realize you’re also getting in shape.

If anyone has the least curiosity about this art form, here is a wonderful opportunity to explore and expand your horizons. Anna’s dedication, patience, and deep knowledge make it easy to step out of your shell. There is no judgment or pressure to look a certain way or achieve at a certain pace. There are women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and ethnicities in their classes. What do they have in common? A desire to empower and express themselves.
