Come see the creations of the Aegela Centers for Middle Eastern Dance. A showcase of bellydance from the Near East without leaving Toledo. Tickets purchased online will be held at the door for pick up on performance evening. Wheelchair seating accommodations.
Belly Dance, also known as Middle Eastern Dance, is truly a dance for all women. It is a low impact dance that can be enjoyed by women of all ages, shapes and talents. A dance in which women celebrate their unique images and personalities. Come celebrate you!
Our mission is exploring the music and dance of the Middle East.
What is Zaghareet? A Zaghareet is the joyous sound heard at happy events such as homecomings, weddings, and parties. Zaghareet is also the name of this publication, which began as a belly dance trade publication but has evolved into a Middle Eastern arts and culture magazine.
For March/April Aegela is featured in Zaghareet magazine! Click here to learn more about Zaghareet and buy a subscription!
