Sahara Dance Hafla!

A “hafla” is a Middle Eastern dance party, and this is a great opportunity to take your belly dancing out of the classroom and try out your moves in a supportive in-studio party atmosphere.


March’s hafla will feature new solo works by select teachers and special guests, to be announced soon! Admission is free for Spring 2017 Beginner I students!


Heena Shah from Mehndi with Heena will be providing beautiful henna body art for purchase!


Join us for an evening of coin-jingling, fringe-flying fun! See the video below for a glimpse of our past haflas!
