"Modern Middle Eastern Dance with a Solid Foundation in the Past"

Technique and Combinations 2-3:45 pm - lots of hips and shimmies, plus arm movements and undulations to a variety of music, both modern pop and traditional.

Choreography 4:15-6 pm - Dahlena will teach a short dance using the combinations and technique from the first class.

Dahlena, one of the dancers featured on the cover of "American Bellydance Legends", is a career dancer, starting in Boston in the early 60's. She has performed in nightclubs across the U.S. as well as in France, Syria and Iraq. She was one of the preeminent pioneers of national workshops in the US.

Dahlena's experience of working with some of the finest musicians and dancers from the Middle East influenced her style of dance. Today, her choreography and dance style is Modern Middle Eastern, based on a solid foundation of the past.

Egypt's Raqia Hassan said, "She is fantastic. If beginners could see Dahlena dancing, then they would understand Arabic dance."
