"I would like to tell you that I was never in my life as happy as when I was taking your classes." Gina, 2004

Belly Dance! A Total Body Workout for Beginners

NEW: Belly Dance Cohesion - Stage 1 - See Free Sample Lesson Above

Through deliberate practice of technique drills, you will learn the basics of simple and elegant belly dance movement. With level-up options, the exercises offer opportunities for greater richness and complexity. Through stylized movements and improvisation exercises, you will start to develop your presence, personal taste, and creative expression. As you progress through the stages, you will learn phrases and combinations which can be arranged into choreography or structured group and solo improvisation.

My ultimate hope is that you discover dance is more than an enjoyable pastime. Dance helps you develop self-awareness, discipline, connection to other human beings, the joy of focused concentration, ego dissolution, and your freedom of choice and individual expression. It is a corporeal, intellectual, and emotional experience. Like any studied art, it is a spiritual practice.

Ongoing Multi-Level group classes are Ongoing Tuesdays at 6:15 PM in the Arden Area of Sacramento. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Bring water.

Here is the greatest gift this ancient art has to offer ALL women:

You will feel more confident, beautiful and sensual because you will BE more confident, beautiful and sensual, inside and out!

So, kick off your tedious work shoes and take this fun and sensual belly dance class and you will learn to belly dance with the best of them!

In this exciting and much sought after class, Daleela, teaches you:

You will:

Belly dance, unlike other dance forms, actually works well with a natural, full figured body. It is an earthy dance that has the capacity to help women of all sizes, ages and races feel and express their own unique grace, creativity and beauty. You will enjoy being in your female body, rather than painstakingly criticizing and whipping it into shape. Belly dance exercises every major muscle in the body and is a low impact workout. But, it is so much more than exercise; it is truly an art.

Daleela is as passionate about teaching as she is about performing and welcomes students of all ages, shapes and sizes!

It is recommended that you use Daleela's instructional dance book, Belly Dance Wisdom, as a supplement to her classes. This is a how-to dance book with the basic steps outlined in writing and with how-to photos. Daleela's book has been featured in Sacramento Magazine, The Sacramento Bee, and Channel 3's Common Ground. You can purchase it through http://www.booklocker.com/books/2732.html.

Ms. Morad is the only belly dance teacher in California to be certified by The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission (SMAC) to perform and teach three approved belly dance workshops/shows to K-12 area schools and community organizations. She is listed in their Arts Education Resource Directory. For the past 12 years, Daleela has striven to perpetuate the rich culture of the Egyptian people through her classes and workshops.
