Belly dance - also known as Middle Eastern Dance, Arabic Dance, or Raqs Sharqi – loosely meaning Oriental Dance, is an ancient art form from the Middle East and North Africa that has grown into a modern global phenomenon! Zahra will show you that it involves a lot more than just the belly! It’s a great way to have fun and exercise the whole body at the same time. Private lessons are available, too!


Common Questions:
What Do I Wear To Class?
Wear comfortable clothing, that you would wear to any exercise or dance class: Yoga pants, T-shirt, Tank top, Shorts, Leotard, etc. We dance Bare-foot or in soft dance shoes, such as ballet slippers, or jazz shoes, if you prefer.

Am I Too Old To Dance? NO! Bellydance is great for all ages shapes and sizes! COME ON! Get Started! Classes in the Columbus, Ohio area
