Your Chicago Belly Dancing School

I first took instruction from Jasmin Jahal when she gave a workshop in Des Moines, Iowa 12 years ago.  I have taken many lessons with many professional belly dancers and Jasmin is my hands down favorite.  She is an excellent instructor, performer and choreographer and is a wonderful source of information about Middle Eastern dance in general.  Her focus is Egyptian cabaret style though she also teaches flokloric.  Jasmin gives first rate instruction in zills, isis wings, veil and stick/cane dancing.
I have traveled to Chicago twice to take lessons with Jasmin and recently completed her annual Shimmyfest course.  It was a terrific challenge and a great deal of fun. I highly recommend Jasmin for instruction, fitness and fun in Middle Eastern dance.  She is professional, gracious and a true artist.
