Hello! I am Zulaika

I love teaching Arab dances!

I love sharing all that I have learned and continue to learn!

I love seeing students discover, try, and accomplish new movements and ideas!

One class was all it took...

I fell in love with Arabic music and dance and it has been my passion ever since.

I have had a wonderful, enriching career as a soloist, a member of Jawaahir Dance Company, and a student to master teachers of several Arab dance styles.

I have traveled to several Arab countries; Egypt, Morocco, Lebanon, and Algeria.

What a fabulous adventure it has been!

The plan was to be an elementary teacher, but...

...I needed dance in my life and the local YWCA had only two choices for women's fitness.
