Welcome! I'm Najla and I've been teaching, performing, and active in the Austin Belly Dance scene for over two decades. Whether you
are thinking about taking your first class, brushing up on moves you learned
before, or expanding your dance knowledge –I’ve got a lifetime of learning to
share with you to help you on your dance journey. I look forward to teaching
you about the history, the music, and the movement that is deeply rooted in
Egyptian and Arabic culture.
Belly dancing is a fun, low-impact activity that welcomes women of all ages, shapes and sizes. You'll build strength and flexibility in class, develop balance and fluidity of movement, and have the chance to explore a more sparkly side of your personality in a fun, supportive environment. Check out my website for more information.
COVID Update: In-person classes will resumed in April 2021. To help ensure student's safety and comfort, class size is limited and masks and social distancing is in effect.
Class topics change on a regular basis, so check individual listings and the calendar for additional information and registration. Unless listed, no previous dance experience is required. Single class passes are available if class attendance permits. Please check with Najla in advance.
All classes are held at Austin Belly Dance studio in north Austin - 2417 Buell Avenue, Austin Texas 78757. Ample street parking is available on evenings and weekends. We ask that students do not block the driveway or business next door!
