Quick Start Beginners Technique is a drills and combos class for motivated beginners and more advanced students who want to sharpen up technique.

Egyptian Intensive: Refine classic technique while keeping abreast of the latest Egyptian moves

Advanced class is a choreography class. Habiba teaches her own choreographies as well as those by such artists as Raqia Hassan, Mahmoud Reda and Ibrahim Farrahh. Dancers are expected to come away with the ability to perform the dance.

Because of the possibility of overcrowding, I must ask that EVERYONE pre-register by phone or email for all classes. You need to give me your name and number and which class you want to register for. I will get back to you only if the class is already filled. Those taking single classes don't need to pre-register. However, if you wish to reserve a place in class but will not be attending the first one you must send a check.

Beginner classes must be paid in full one week before the start of the term. Intermediate and Advanced students who are not going to be present at the first class of 10 weeks must also pay in advance in order to hold their place in class. Missed classes must be made up within the same 10 week session

No refunds after the first week of classes.

Habiba accepts personal checks, cash, and credit cards.
