Whether you dance as an activity to keep fit or to experience the professional stage, I teach and share the pleasure of belly dancing to all women, in an authentic, friendly, and festive atmosphere! I can’t wait to share my art, my experiences, and my passion with you.

I founded the Samia Baladi Academy in 1999. My goal: to share the happiness that this dance brings and to create a performance dance school for all women.

My modern signature retains the authenticity of belly dancing. I teach all styles: cabaret, classical, contemporary, pop as well as folklore from different regions of Egypt and the Middle East. My teaching is adapted to my clientele. Everything is designed so that your path is progressive both in terms of technical learning and artistic expression, while integrating all the accessories related to belly dance.

  • Group classes for all levels
  • Dance troupes – amateur and elite/semi-professional
  • Annual, grandiose, and professional show, choreographed by Samia
  • Technical and choreographic workshops
  • Dance expression workshops
  • Coaching for artists and choreographers for various projects: cinema, television, musicals, theater, etc.
  • Choreography for special occasions: weddings, engagements, bachelorette parties…

You will benefit from:

  • Fitness for body and soul, which celebrates life.
  • An activity that is artistic and physical
  • An activity for well-being and anti-stress
  • A network of true friends
  • A passionate teacher who is active on the artistic scene and committed to sharing her knowledge.

“For me, dance is a complete activity which develops artistic sense, the expression of emotions, the spiritual connection to oneself, and the physical since the whole body moves. It also appeals to the intellect for concentration, memorization of choreography, space, etc. I find that no other discipline uses our whole being so much, not even sport, not even Yoga. » Carole T.
