Classes with Ishra

2019 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN - CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Ishra’s classes are positive, supportive and empowering – a place where you can connect joyfully and powerfully with other women and yourself. Enjoy the swirl of women’s faces, the twinkling of hip scarves and laughter, and above all, the exquisite, mesmerizing movement of Middle Eastern Dance. You will learn to be present in your body, to feel its balanced, centered strength, and enhance your natural flow and grace.

With Ishra you will build a strong foundation in classical Egyptian style (Raqs Sharqi) in her intro classes and then will proceed to learn many different folkloric dance forms from the Middle East, as well as using props such as veil, cane, finger cymbals (zills, sagat), sword, and fusion in her intermediate and advanced classes. She enjoys watching her students grow, encouraging self-expression and fusion, as well as preserving traditional Middle Eastern dance and music.

Classes start in September and are divided into fall, winter, and spring sessions. Students will learn moves and combinations that will be incorporated into choreographies that will be presented to family and friends at a beautiful student showcase in June: the Belly Blush Student Showcase. Over the summer, Ishra will offer multilevel mini-sessions or intensive workshops.

Ishra offers numerous levels of classes in a variety of styles. Find the one that’s right for you! Or enroll in two or more classes to receive special discounts and develop your skills even quicker!
