Yamê created SharqiDance in 2017, after many years of performing and teaching belly dance professionally.
Our mission is to foster physical and virtual spaces where adult students with little or no prior dance experience can feel fully welcome and capable of learning this dance, and anything else they set their minds to!
I've been Yame's student for the last year. There is no other teacher I would have wanted to help me get back into belly dance after losing my lower leg. Yame is dedicated to translating belly dance technique so every student understands. While exploring several folkloric dances, she also incorporates into the lesson an opportunity to understand the origins of the music, dances, and rhythms. All while being a pioneer in self love and turning movement into energy and fuel for positivity. Any class of hers comes highly recommended, and while you can't put a value on the whole body and mind gain that comes out of it, her classes are reasonably priced. You get more than your money's worth. Plus we're a very welcoming and loving community! We love welcoming new members into our family!
Absolutely love being a part of such an empowering group!
Sharqi Dance offers a full experience into the culture, movement, and magic of belly dance. We learn something new every week and continue to build on our technique and skills. It is always a positive experience and my body feels great!
One of the best things I've done was start taking your classes! Thank you for being a great teacher and a wonderful woman! -Darla
I'd never taken a dance class before and was nervous about jumping in. But Yame's classes teach everything! She drills technique, teaches choreography, and even gives lessons on the history of the different dances and music styles. It's a great workout and an awesome confidence boost. It's the highlight of my week:) -Rebecca
Yame is a very talented bellydancer and an excellent and thorough teacher. Her classes are the highlight of my week! She takes the time to explain each move, and assists students as necessary with breaking down technique. I particularly enjoy learning the backstory of each dance style we learn, Yame is very knowledgeable about the different types of bellydance she teaches. I highly recommend looking into Yame's bellydance classes if you're looking to learn the art of bellydance, have a great workout, learn about different styles of Arabic dance, and most importantly have fun! -CJ
I had such a great time what a great experience!
