Saqra Belly Dance Workshop - Omaha, NE

Zaghareet Magazine’s “Best Kept Secret of 2005”

Zaghareet Magazine's Instructor of the Year 2008


September 12-13, 2009—Omaha, NE


So many of the dancers who attended last year’s Saqra workshop found the workshop to be so informative that they asked if Saqra could return..

 Saqra is a powerful dance artist and master instructor. Her fluidity, grace, and technical skill is enhanced by her friendly demeanor and clear joy of the dance.

 Saqra placed or won in a stunning number of competitions beginning in 1988 -titles really too numerous to list-but stopped competing in 2001 due to her extensive and wildly increasing teaching/travel schedule and her event production schedule. In her band, the Mediterranean Raqs Band, she plays lead melodic on the keyboard. 

 It is her firm belief that every dancer has their own natural and achieved style and that no dancer should be required to copy someone else exactly. She believes there is a freedom in the natural movement of Oriental Dance that should allow the blooming of the personal style and spirit of the dancer. Saqra approaches instructing with a genuine love for the individual student.
