Saqra (Seattle, WA) is a powerful dance artist and a master instructor. Her fluidity, grace, and technical skill is highlighted by her friendly demeanor and clear joy of the dance. She did not inherit the diva gene.
Saqra teaches and performs Internationally, and as an award winning dancer and instructor (BD UDA, BDoY, BDoU, Wiggles, many other titles), event promoter, musician, CD & instructional DVD producer and WA state registered hypnotherapist, that probably is enough stuff to a start to explain what she has been doing in belly dance the last 40 years
Belly Dance Night at Roxy & Dukes

No experience is necessary, but an assaya is required.
Please no canes.
Assaya can often be purchased from either Belly Dance America or Turquoise International. A cane with the hook cut off will also work for learning purposes.
