Amoora Dance & Fitness Studio
In addition to hosting cardio and dance classes in her studio Amoora Dance & Fitness, owner Suhad Nassar imparts the graceful undulations of Egyptian belly dance, striving to motivate women and children to lead healthy lifestyles while connecting with their sense of rhythm. Her belly dance cardio sessions blend aerobics with the eye-dazzling movements traditionally performed at Egyptian celebrations and weddings. Meant to be performed as an improvisational dance, the Raqs sharqi movements enable dancers to sway naturally to the sizzling music and the spontaneous rhythms of traffic horns. Because Egyptian children traditionally learn these dances in the home, Ms. Nassar fosters an equivalent level of comfort by encouraging group members to motivate and offer kind words to one another.
