Our mission is exploring the music and dance of the Middle East.
Explore the history, music and dance of Turkey with Artemis (MD) and of Egypt with Aegela (OH). These two leading artists will show you where the lines were drawn between these cultures and where the lines were blurred.
Join us for Belly Flea Agora 2020 April 25th, 2020 from 12pm to 5pm at Providence Lutheran Church in Holland, OH. Belly Flea Agora is presented by Aegela Centers for Middle Eastern Dance & Kelly Hassan One Spirit Dance & Fitness.
Join us for an afternoon of belly dancing fun, performances, socializing, shopping, selling.
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.

What Our Students are Saying
We have both been greatly influenced by taking your class; it has done wonders for our self-esteem…
YOU made us look good… I always tell my drum students it’s up to them to make the dancer look good; it was amazing to see it happen the other way around. Too cool!
I love Aegela! I have taken lessons from her and she has a very special way with people, and is one of the most positive, fascinating women I have ever met! I believe you can heal your way through anything with the dance and Aegela’s unique style of teaching.
Aegela is not just a dancer. She’s an experience.
We are lucky to have you as our teacher, and I appreciate your dedication to us.
“Thank you! You make things easy to understand. I always have a realization about how my body is really supposed to be moving! It’s wonderful.
