What you'll do

We will meet up at my home studio & learn together the basics of belly dancing. Belly dance is an expressive dance which emphasizes complex movements of the torso. In the Middle East it has two distinct social contexts: as a folk or social dance, and as a performance art. Known as Raqs Baladi or Raqs Shaabi (in Arabic) it is performed at celebrations and social gatherings.

Shereen is so great! We had a fantastic time learning bellydancing with her. It was such a fun way to learn and connect with friends while listening to wonderful music. Shereen is a certified bellydance instructor and her ability to patiently break down every move for us really showed!

We were celebrating (all seniors) a 75th birthday in Amman (coming from Cyprus). We booked a cooking class followed by belly dancing. We really had a a great great time - it was more like a visit to old friends. Shereen and her cousin were great hosts and we spent a very enjoyable evening with a local family and had very interesting discussions about cultures and we got an insight into the Muslim world that we did not have before. Would recommend it to anyone. We left as great friends.

This was a wonderful experience. Shereen is very professional, knowledgeable and patient. She explains the technique very well and is so in tune with the feeling of the music. It is something I strongly recommend doing while in Amman.

Shereen is a great teacher, very patient showing us how to move our hips, etc. and she had some sweet poppin' songs lined up! We loved ALL the dances she choreographed. It was a great pre-wedding gal pal activity, I highly recommend this experience.
