Middle Eastern Dance Instruction

TEACHING FORMAT & STYLE

Vilia's classes are structured on the Suhaila Salimpour format and class composition including warm-up,
technique, vocabulary, and nomenclature. Classes also include combinations from the Jamila Salimpour
format vocabulary of step families. The Jamila Salimpour format is vintage belly dance, the basis for both
American classical cabaret and traditional tribal. Vilia is Suhaila Level 4 and Jamila Level 3 certified
and is currently working towards her teaching certification in both formats.
