New to belly dance? Do something special for yourself this new year! Belly dance is a great total body workout that builds strength, is easy on your joints, and increases your flexibility. It's also a great emotional release because belly dance is fun and creative! Our Level 1 classes are geared for non-dancers. You will learn basic movements and then build upon them. We recommend beginning dancers start Level 1 within the first three weeks of a session because the classes are progressive. See FAQs. Watch a video about our classes! More questions? Call 612-872-6050.


Jawaahir welcomes new apprentices: Denise Domack, Jessica Pacquin, Kate Southwick, Megan Cunningham, and Paula Miller. So, if you see these gals, congratulate them and wish them a "break a belly" at their first formal Jawaahir performance at "What's Love Got To Do With It?"!

  Jawaahir Dance Company is dedicated to presenting Middle Eastern dance as a living art form at its highest artistic level, to bringing the rich folkloric heritage of the Middle East to the theater stage, and to providing education about the dance in its authentic form for dance students and the general public. In carrying out our mission, we strive to make our work culturally, financially, and physically accessible to the public. You can support Jawaahir's mission by making a tax deductible donation.
