Belly dancing is a different way to work out while loosening joints and limbering up muscles for any crime fighting you may have penciled in for later. Your talented leader, Najia, will have you move in ways you once thought possible only for hula-hooping grand masters and members of the legendary dance troupe Los del Río. She has years of experience and thousands of classes under her swinging belt. Those of all levels are welcome to start undulating to their waists’ content. Gather a group of willing whirligigs and head to the studio for three rousing rounds of exercise and amusement. Remember to wear dance slippers or socks, or borrow a pair of your friend’s bare feet, as there are no shoes allowed in the studio.
Though most of her students have yet to write online reviews, you can read enthusiastic testimonials on Najia’s website: > * Not only is she a beautiful dancer, she is one of the kindest people I have ever known. – Claire > * I have gained confidence, sensuality, femininity, and grace. I have lost nearly 50 pounds…and I have never felt more alive, and more myself than when I loose [sic] myself to the music and just dance from the heart. – Laura > * …I credit the art of Bellydance for helping me find balance, peace, and an avenue of creative outlet and expression. I love to dance and I’ve found that learning with Najia has helped me to blossom and tap into my inner rythms [sic], and I’m really enjoying this journey. – Natasha
Belly Dancing by Najia
Najia has inspired audiences with her sensual Middle Eastern dance in Egypt and Jordan, as well as in restaurants, nightclubs, and Pearl Jam’s preshow. Building her diverse dancing resumé, she pilgrimages to the Middle East for two or three months each year to continue researching dances, garner inspiration for her Philadelphia Bellydance company, and make her passport more colorful. She calls upon all of her twirling know-how to lead series of four weekly classes, in which students learn to shimmy, hip drop, and send veils fluttering through the air or weave together basic moves for complex choreography. On the fifth week after class sessions, students meet for a confidence-inspiring Goddess Night that awakens inner beauty through dance workshops, vegan treats, and performances as guests mingle bedecked in veils, gems, and outer adornment.
