That sounds like the restraurant further out west of here ... however, they're not real friendly to dancers who perform there ... so we as a group, just don't go there.

But we do have the place near the flats -- they're moved and remodeled it ... and we get to check out the arabic tv station too! They always have it turned on to their MTV channel!

The DJ is actually local (and Mexican ;P), but we have a great mix CD of some of the best belly dancing/Arabic/even Persian songs (mostly popular modern music, too, which has a great beat for dancing too)! Another fun "get up and move" dance we do is circle dabkeh, and we have a dabkeh troupe in town who all frequent the hookah bar as well. =)

Hi Rose ... we have Hookah bars up here in Cleveland too. It's great fun to go there and actually be able to do many of our dance moves to middle eastern DJs.

Hi everyone!

To start off, I took bellydance lessons when I was about 11-12, but ended up having no time for them in high school. I was always still interested and bought a couple DVDs, but I just couldn't get into them like the classes. =)

Well, since June I've been going to this wonderful hookah bar across the street from my apartment and soon I started joining into the Arabic dancing! It was a huge blast to my bellydance past and I asked one of the bellydance performers who she recommended I take lessons from. Long story short, I FINALLY signed up for a class with the most amazing woman. I start Monday. =) I guess I do kind of bellydance at the hookah bar with everyone, but it's more of Arab dancing (my boyfriend/ex-boyfriend/no idea is Saudi Arabian and we do a lot of Saudi dances together).
