Alay’nya teaches classic, 1970’s-era, New York-style belly dance (Mid-Eastern dance, or Oriental dance) at both Beginner and Intermediate levels, and also offers private coaching for performances and choreography refinement.

This era of belly dance was much richer, in both choreography and complexity, than today’s current Egyptian-style belly dance. There was much more in the way of movement across the floor. The movements were more about sensuality, and a bit less blatant.
