July 2024

Studio is Closed. I will post about classes after we are settled.

On February 16, 2024, I will be closing the studio and retiring from the business side of dancing. I will offer private classes for those students who still have classes remaining on their dance cards as well as keep the dance troupe so we can perform. It has been an exciting 45 years of dancing and learning. I want to thank all my Gainesville students over the last 25 years for their support and patronage and community members who have promoted us and given us opportunities to dance.

How to Register

Select the day(s) and time(s) you would like to take class. We recommend students start with a beginner class if they have never belly danced before. For those who have taken classes before, we suggest the Progressive or Advanced Beginner level to get you acquainted with Sallamah's teaching style and technique. You can always change classes. Our Class Schedule is kept up-to-date, but if you have any questions, e-mail Sallamah at . To decide how many dance classes you would like to purchase and the price of the cards See Class Prices...
