About Kamar Al Nur's
Bellydance Classes

Bellydance has been deemed the best total fitness workout of the New Millennium. Learn the beautiful Art of La Danse Orientale with the Divine Excellence of one of California's foremost Middle Eastern Orientale Dance instructors, KAMAR AL NUR.

KAMAR AL NUR offers the highest quality Beginning through Advanced level Orientale Bellydance lessons for Adults and Teens in a Studio setting and pre-arranged In-Home Private Lessons. Styles taught are American Classic style (also known as American Cabaret), Turkish Cabaret, Arabic, Folk, Fusion, Gypsy/Latin Fusion and Fantasy styles. Bellydancing is not easy but anyone is capable of learning this exciting form of personal expression.

Although one is exercising while taking a Bellydance class, this is indeed a classical and cultural dance class and not an exercise class. History of the dance and styles of costuming are presented in class as a part of the learning experience.

Intermediate and Advanced Students have a chance to perform at special events. Performing is always optional. Students also learn the use of props such as veils, single and double circular veils, zils (cymbals), fans, veil fans, candles, tambourine, single and double swords and scimitars (w/signed Waiver/Release), daggers and dumbec or tabla (drums).

How about a BELLYDANCE LESSON for each of your guests at your next BRIDAL OR BABY SHOWER instead of those silly and boring Shower games? Or a group lesson for your ADOLESCENT or TEEN GIRLS BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION or any Women's Gathering.

Lessons are taught by Kamar Al Nur. Lessons are 1 hour for $15 per participant or $20 per participant for 1 1/2 hours. There is a minimum of 10 paid students and your Bride, Mother-to-Be or Birthday Girl is free. At Women's Gatherings, each participant must pay. Your lesson includes a short Yoga warm up, a few basic movements, veil movements, shimmies and you will learn a simple choreography to music. A great way for the ladies at your special occasion to get a taste of the biggest rage of the New Millennium. Veils and hip scarves will be provided for up to 15 participants.

***Please note that there is a $25 minimum travel fee. Amount of travel fee is determined by distance to the event from Norwalk.

Kamar's Granddaughter, TAMARA, also competed in the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competition at the Willow St. Center in Long Beach for the first time in February 2000 and was judged tied for third runner up. She was very strong and confident. She was also featured on the Channel 11 Fox News that evening. A great honor!
