Introduction to Belly Dance
Najla is an Egyptian-style belly dance performer and instructor who brings the spirit of the Middle East to New York City and beyond through the beautiful art of belly dance. Practicing the art of Middle Eastern dance since 2001, her performances and classes focus not only on the joy, entertainment, and excitement of dance, but also on presenting Middle Eastern dance in a positive, culturally-informed light.
Belly dance is a great way to learn a beautiful art form while staying in shape, gaining confidence in yourself, and (most importantly) having fun! Family friendly performances and classes at the NYPL are open to all ages and fitness levels. For more information about other shows and learning opportunities.
