Lotus Niraja is a professional belly dance artist specializing in Modern, Urban Egyptian Belly Dance Folk, and Raks Sharqi. She is internationally recognized for her dance style, dramatic energy, vibrant interpretation, and technique.  Her dance style is serious fun, infused with glamor and style.


We have asked Lotus to teach two classes - take one or both! Classes are held in a real dance studio with mirrors.

Raks Sharki with Nubian & Sha'abi Sampler

Nubian and Sha'abi dancing have become insanely popular and have begun taking over Saidi and Baladi dancing in Raks Sharki performances in Cairo. In this sampler class, Lotus encourages and teaches you to re-define your dance style while incorporating Sha'abi and Nubian dance elements.

Fix It!  Re-training Your Basic Belly Dance Moves

Tap into multiple facets of layering - take your hip and chest locks, figure-eights, undulations, and shimmies to new levels, volume, and intensity. Explore energy levels, floor patterns, quality of movement, and emoting through your body. Learn to re-define the dance style you already own, whether beginner or professional, with enhancements and subtle differences.

Don't forget to sign up to share the stage with Lotus and our sponsors at our annual evening hafla showcase! A limited number of dance slots are available for the show - first come; first served.  All performers must register for at least one class.  Please limit performance time to five minutes, maximum.
