Alia’s Inspiring Fun Class!

Live and Online

Alia’s Inspiring FUN classes are eclectic–something different every time. Most weeks, we do some Follow-me improvisation, Alia’s somatic grounding techniques, a short combination, genre, prop, or musicality study, and a free improv section for relaxation and joy.  

Alia’s fun belly dance classes increase improv confidence, build trust in the body, and regulate the nervous system.   I am passionate about this. Belly dance is already a stellar venue for relaxation and resolution. On top of this I have built in many Somatic Experiencing® (SE) strategies to highlight this feature. Dancers feel relaxed, energized, and happy. So will you!  

Deep Dives!

We take you on Deep Dives, 5-week sessions that focus on improvising to specific elements of Oriental dance. Previous Dives have included Taqsim, Classic Song, Drum Solo, and Open Heart. See our current Deep Dive below!

Our Format draws from Ibrahim Farrah’s original class format, infused with Somatic Experiencing™ and Dancemeditation™, all of which have taught me so much about dance and improv.

  • Something different every time
  • Suitable for all levels, all styles
  • Live online and recorded options

How does this work?

Each week, we stream the class live via Every one is welcome to join the live class. It is so pleasant to be together with other folks who all want to enjoy themselves with dance! After the class, usually within 48 hours, the new class is posted for streaming. The class stays up for a week, when it is replaced with the next class. Zoom is free and easy to use. The sound and video quality are good, and there is virtually no lag in the livestream. We send reminder emails with the link shortly before each class begins.

Fun, energizing, grounding, and conceptually stimulating.
Simple on the outside, complex on the inside.

No notes, no muss, no fuss–just a fun dance class to build skills and enjoy dancing.

The most nurturing and freeing class….and so wonderful to glean movement ideas and feels from you…so creative

I went from “OMG, I’m so free, “kitchen dancing” in front of other people!” in the first class, to feeling in charge of myself and my expression, while experiencing the same freedom. You have such a talent for bringing out who we are by creating a safe space where there are no mistakes. It’s the simplest thing, and yet the most powerful.
