Hi I'm Keti Sharif. I teach Somatic movement and Bellydance. A-Z Bellydance has been supporting students and teachers worldwide for over 20 years and we enjoy a vast and diverse community. All my Courses have recently been updated, with fresh content and live Egyptian music to enrich your bellydance skills, improve musicality and vastly expand your movement repertoire.

Discover how to dance with more fluidity, naturalness and ease!

My approach is somatic (mindful/internally focused) and musically-based, connecting dancers more deeply to their movement artistry. Dancers are encouraged to explore their own responses, finding 'fluid form within structure' for richer choreography and improvisation.

The new-format A-Z features 100% LIVE Egyptian music and rhythms.

Influenced by Mahmoud Reda and Farida Fahmy, who inspired my journey into Somatic education, the methodology distills 30 years of research, working with musicians and dance artists, and hosting cultural events in Egypt. A-Z Bellydance is currently taught in 40 countries, and its home is the Somatic Movement Studio.
