Why learn at Ahlam Academy?

  • We know you want to learn the real thing and “Dance Like an Egyptian” in an authentic way that honors the people and cultures these dances come from. Ahlam Academy is passionate about preserving and perpetuating folkloric, traditional, and modern dance forms from the Middle Eastern, North African, and Turkish dances… it’s what we do!  
  • Cut your learning time in half! Why take it slow? Our comprehensive, step-by-step program will help you get there in less time, without cutting corners. You will be amazed at how much you CAN learn in such a short amount of time with our intensive curriculum.
