Nazeem Alsabah

Do You Want More from Your Belly Dance Experience?
Ever thought about joining our student troupe Nazeem Alsabah?

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for beginner level and intermediate level Nazeem Allayl Studio Students.
Yes, Beginners! :-) We are definitely not looking for a "finished product" dancer and actually tend to recruit beginners, because we have a very distinct style and want troupe members who are able to easily adapt & develop their dance into that style. We are looking for fabulous Works-in-Progress!

Who is Nazeem Alsabah and why should YOU want to be a troupe member?

Nazeem Alsabah is a fabulous and very talented group of women, who have formed a sisterhood within our studio. Troupe members come from all over the U.S. and as far away as Japan. We are from diverse backgrounds, but all share a deep love for and commitment to belly dance, our studios, performing, and educating the public about belly dance. Being in Nazeem Alsabah gives dancers an opportunity to seriously challenge themselves and develop their talent and performance skills in a way that would not be possible with any other group or anywhere else. It is also a wonderful way to bond with other dancers, make friends, and have a lot of fun while doing something you love.

What do YOU get out of being in Nazeem Alsabah?

  • You get to surround yourself with serious dancers and be a part of a very prestigious group.
  • be a member of an actual troupe with all the joys that go along with that.
  • perform A LOT and represent the dance and the studios that you love.
  • surround yourself with all things belly dance and learn more about every aspect of belly dance - the culture, the music, the mystique, where it's been and where it is going.
  • develop your talent, get more individual critique and hone your performance skills.
  • wear very fabulous costumes and be adored by thousands of people!

What’s involved in being a member of Nazeem Alsabah?

A lot of your experience depends on what you want and your level of commitment to dance and to the troupe. Generally speaking, all of the troupes rehearse on Sundays. At the moment Alsabah meets from 11am-1pm. Troupe activities take place at all three studios. In preparation for larger events, like the Studio Shows, troupe members will have more intense rehearsal schedules, which might include meeting during the week and after classes. Nazeem Alsabah members are also required to take weekly classes with Schadia, the director. More details will be given at the information meeting.
