Your teacher, Zahida Palma
If we were to describe Zahida’s classes with one word that would be joyful!
From the very first class you will be dancing as well as enjoying the inclusive and warm environment created in the studio. Her classes are engaging, fun, and very practical.
With over 20 years of teaching experience and thousands of students under her belt, Zahida will help you to develop your confidence as well as your self-expression through dance, no matter your background.
Classes include a complete warm up, based on Body Awareness techniques, drills, sequences, movement breakdowns and expression exercises. Keeping it simple and challenging at the same time, there is no time to get bored.
You’ll find a wide range of bellydance styles, from Egyptian to Turkish, from tribal fusion to modern styles, with some creative licenses that will make you learn something new in every lesson.
Zahida is a member of the groundbreaking bellydance company, Company of Dreams – having toured the UK with them in 2018 – and she was the teacher of the company’s Belly Dance for Joy project, bringing free bellydance lessons to women in vulnerable moments of their lives. Both projects are lead by Charlotte Desorgher.
Zahida is also the soul and force behind the DancePandemic.com blog, where she regularly shares mini classes, explanations, tips and reflections around dance in general and bellydance in particular.
Her bellydance lessons will spring clean your soul and polish up your body. See you on the dance floor!
