Fun and Exciting! Awesome workout! – If you are looking for a place to learn a fun and exciting art form, while getting a great workout, you need to look into Nazeem Allayl studios! Course variety is excellent-all types of classes for all types of workout needs! Walk in workouts will really get you working up a sweat and assist in helping with weight loss goals. I am very happy that I decided to drop in on a belly dance class at Nazeem Allayl studios over two years ago. Fun, exciting, welcoming and all women environment. Technique courses are lead by instructors that really know how to break down a move into parts for students to grasp more easily. There are no membership fees or contracts. You just pay for the classes you are interested in and costs are very reasonable! They have class times to fit your schedule. Performance opportunities available too!
Best place for belly dance – I love this studio! I've been dancing here for over a year--I'm addicted! They offer a wide variety of classes, including technique classes for those who want to learn how to do the moves like a pro, choreography classes for those who want to learn fun, sassy dances to all kinds of songs (Top 100 to Egyptian folk and everything in between!), and walk in and work out classes for those who just want to shimmy their way to fitness. There is always something new to learn or try, and belly dancing is a great alternative to ordinary gym workouts. The atmosphere is incredibly positive--women of all ages, body types, and backgrounds come to show off their dance moves and celebrate their femininity. The teachers are friendly and supportive, and each has her own unique personality and style, so you can easily find an instructor that meets your learning style. Plus, the studio sell tons of great props and clothing so you can not only feel fabulous, but look fabulous as well! My time here has helped me gain physical fitness as well as confidence. I highly recommend this studio if you are looking for a new way to work out, a unique to hobby, or a great way to meet new friends!
Atlanta Belly Dance – I attended my first walk-in work out class with Nazeem Allayl Belly Dance studios a year ago and now I am hooked! If you are looking for a wonderful alternative to regular gym workouts then belly dancing is definitely the way to go. This studio offers technique and choreography courses, as well as walk in work out classes. All of the teachers are very friendly and the environment is very positive.
There is also a wonderful selection of belly dancing attire and props for sale at the studio.
Best Belly Dance Studio In Atlanta – This studio is outstanding . They offer so many classes from workout ,art of belly dance, and using the coolest props. The teachers are amazing teachers as well as performers . You feel right at home in the women only environment a must try.
warning: may be addictive – I stopped in to the Little 5 Points studio for a workout class a few months ago and have been coming back twice or three times a week since. You get pulled in by the sense of community, the warm, welcoming environment, and the huge variety of interesting classes. Seriously, the number of classes I want to take when they release their calendar is always more than my body or wallet will allow. You can learn not just traditional Middle Eastern belly dance, but hula, bhangra, tribal dance, hip-hop/belly dance fusion... the list goes on. And on top of that, you can learn to add props to your dance repertoire (sword dance, anyone?). Plus, the super warm, all-female environment has taught me to embrace my sensual, feminine side (which doesn't get to come out much in my day-to-day life). The only downside is, as some others have pointed out, every time you show up to class you're tempted to empty your wallet on the beautiful belly dance clothes and accessories on sale at all studio locations. This place has added so much to my life, I highly recommend it to anyone.
Best Studio EVER! – I am currently taking classes at the Windy Hill Studio - and I love it! I felt a difference after the first class. You get a work out without even realizing it!! My body can now move in ways I never thought it could, and that is coming from someone who is dance-challenged. I am so proud of the work I have put in to belly dance and I can now see the classes paying off!!
Some reviews have said they dont take credit cards, but I know the Windy Hill studio does! Which is a good and bad thing because they have so many beautiful clothes, coin sashes, and music there, I am constantly tempted to buy the whole store! :)
You will not regret taking classes with them - they really are the best in Atlanta!!!
Amazing Studio – I was bitten by the bellydance bug 5 months ago after only one class! Since then I've taken at least 2 classes per week and a walk-in work out class here and there. I love the choreography classes (the dances and music is awesome) and the work out classes kick my butt! You would never guess that bellydance would be SO challenging...in a great way! I also love the performance opportunities that Nazeem Allayl offers. There are 2 studio shows that students can perform each year, as well as more informal haflas which anyone is welcome to dance in. Those are a blast! It gives you a chance to show off everything you've been working on to your friends (since no observers are allowed in class) and trust me, they will be amazed! The only downside is that the studio only accepts cash or check, so come prepared!
Best Dance Studio – If you want to learn bellydance this is the place to be. There are three convenient locations. All locations have stores with just about every item you will need to make you look like a bellydancer. Several classes are offered weekly so the studios are always open. If you are looking for a feminine dance and that will keep you in shape I highly recommend this studio.
Awesome belly dance instruction! – Looking to learn how to belly dance? Check out Nazeem Allayl Studios! There are three studios to choose from, so you can go to the one closest to you or mix it up and go to all three. Either way, you are in for a great workout and awesome dance experience! Belly dance is like no other dance I’ve done before…it is very beautiful and feminine, but very intensive on your thighs, glutes, core, and arms…it is actually pretty surprising how great of a workout you get! I have started subbing my gym visits with dance classes a couple of times a week to mix it up and have a FUN sweat session! The teachers are cool and really good at explaining the proper technique…it seems that this company is very particular about their “style” of dancing, so you learn a range of different moves and types of belly dance, but they really focus on your posture so you do your moves the right way. The classes are also awesome bc no matter what you take, the student attendance is always very diverse. There are women of all sizes, ages, and ethnicity…16 is the youngest allowed, but there is no age limit from there on up!! Many of the students are regulars, and they, in addition to the teachers, make you feel much more comfortable and welcome than some of the other dance and workout classes I’ve been to. You are welcome to wear what you want to class, but everyone encourages you to really get into it and dress as belly dancy as you can! It also makes for a more fun experience bc not only are you dancing the dance, you look the part too! So go ahead and purchase that fabulous coin belt…you will feel pretty and womanly rather than sweaty and gross in your gym clothes…it’s great!
Great experience – Lets start from the beginning. I was first introduced to belly dance by Shakira, I was so intrigued by the way she danced, I mean look at her hips! And so when a friend told me about the Nazeem Allyal studios I was very excited of the possibility that I could learn to dance like her. So about a year ago I signed up for my first class and have been going since.
Now lets talk about what keeps me coming back. Great teachers!!!! They are so talented! The atmosphere is great, only women. So you don’t have to worry about man staring while you are dancing. Also, belly dance is such a feminine dance that by the time you leave the first class you will be like, “oh I need to go get my nails done” or “I need to wear a dress more often.” It really does bring out the “women” inside of you.
Overall, I recommend the Nazeem Allyal studios to learn how to belly dance. It is the largest in the US, however it doesn’t feel that way at all. Instructors are very personable! They have the most experience. The studio is an established studio; they have been in business for 10+ years and from what I’ve hear Schadia, the owner, has been dancing for at least 15 years. So quit thinking about it and go ahead and sign up. You won’t regret it! Just be sure to sign up 3 days before class to save $10.
