Belly Dance with Nurjahan

Belly dance was passed down to Nurjahan from the women in her family, who are from Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. While it's practiced differently in many parts of the world, the way she learned and now teaches it, it's a community-based practice in celebrating and reconnecting with your body. Nurjahan is not currently offering in-person belly dance workshops due to COVID-19 precautions, but has online mini-classes available on Youtube.
