Hello, My dance name is Munira, which means to brighten up a room as you walk in. I am a life-long dancer with over thirty years of belly dance and teaching experience. I have a MA in Women's Spirituality from New College of CA, so I am deeply interested in the roots of belly dance. I am also a painter and a poet. I have been a night club performer since thee 80s. I teach primarily Turkish cabaret, but I also teach Arabic cane. My primary teacher was Nasrine of the Boston Oriental Dancers. Nasrine studied from the lineage of Jamila Salimpour! Join us for class. There is no prior dance experience necessary. All ages, shapes, and sizes are welcome.
