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 five years of belly dance and teaching experience. I have a MA in Women's Spirituality from New College of CA, so I am interested in the connection of ancient Goddess worshiping cultures and belly dance. I am also a painter and a poet. I have been a night club performer since the 80's. I teach primarily Turkish cabaret, but I also teach Arabic cabaret/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.
