Welcome! (In Egypt, they say "Ahlan Wasahlan.")

Tamalyn Dallal has dedicated her life to Raqs Sharqi (AKA “Bellydance.”) She dances it as a daily practice for health, healing, exercise and relaxation. This dance is a “miracle dance” that reduces stress and helps us appreciate and love Egyptian, Turkish and Levantine music and culture.

Online classes and in person classes in New Orleans will resume July 8. 

Originally taught in January, 2024, This class involves drills and exersises with combos. It recieved so much enthusiasm from those who took the class that it is being offered as series of 4 recordings for those who missed it. $50.
