Hello everyone! My name is Hanan Ahlam Abboud and I am the founder and principal of Ahlam Bellydance. I speak Arabic fluently and am well versed in the customs, traditions and music of the region. The passion for my culture and the traditions which shape it, has led me to dedicate the last 15 years of my life to teaching and promoting Middle Eastern Dance. By sharing the philosophy and traditions that have shaped this dance, I am endeavouring to dispel the stereotypes that surround this art form and its homelands.
“The truest expression of a people lies in its dance and its music. Bodies never lie.” ~AgnesDe Mille~
