New to belly dance? Do something special for yourself! 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! We offer six Level 1 classes all geared for non-dancers. You will learn basic movements and then build upon them. See FAQs. Watch a video about our classes! More questions? Call 612-872-6050.


SHAKEN & STIRRED: Jawaahir in the Fringe Festival! Expect the unexpected, as well as the classic! Along with a selection of new dances created with the Fringe ethic in mind, Jawaahir Dance Company will present a short preview of its upcoming concert, Shoma, featuring an Arabian desert storyteller named Shoma. For these performances, master Near Eastern dancer Cassandra and Jawaahir’s 20 dancers are “shaken and stirred” by inspiring musical sources from around the globe, and their unique Fringe performances will delight the senses!



  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.
