Level 1 Jamila
Jamila Salimpour, Suhaila’s mother, was the first belly dance teacher to create a specific format of movements with individual names for each step. The original Belly Dance style! The steps she created are now the majority of belly dance movements taught today. Class includes combinations from the Jamila Salimpour format vocabulary of step families and from Suhaila Salimpour technique and nomenclature. The Jamila Salimpour format is vintage bellydance, the basis for both American classical cabaret and traditional tribal. Jamila’s format was the inspiration and foundation of what later became known as American Tribal Style. Jamila is also the master of finger cymbals. Each class is different and invaluable as far as developing both dance and finger cymbal skills, as well as learning the history of belly dance movements in America. Jamila truly is the American matriarch of belly dance! Rachel is Suhaila Level 5 certified and is pursuing continued education to maintain her teaching certificate
