Each member of the Nazeem Allayl Dance Company is an accomplished dancer in her own right & was chosen because of her ability to be hold an audience's attention as both a soloist and troupe dancer. All of the Nazeem Allayl Dancers have had extensive Middle Eastern dance training, as well as having diverse dance backgrounds.

The amazing dancers of Nazeem Allayl are available for hire to dance at your event or restaurant, or to teach mini-workshops for women at bachelorette parties, ladies-night out, red-hat meetings, sweet-sixteen parties, or whenever women get together, want to feel fabulous and have fun.

Nazeem Alsabah"Breezes of the Dawn"

The name Nazeem Alsabah means "Breezes of the Dawn" in Arabic. Schadia founded this troupe in 2002 as an amateur organization & creative outlet for our studio's students. It has blossomed into one of the best Middle Eastern Dance Troupes in the U.S. -- amateur or professional.

The members of Nazeem Alsabah are from diverse backgrounds & all share a deep love for and commitment to belly dance, our studio, and performing. Being in Nazeem Alsabah gives dancers an opportunity to seriously challenge themselves, develop their talent and performance skills & be extremely fabulous. It is also a wonderful way to bond with other dancers, make friends, and have a lot of fun while doing something you love.

Members of Nazeem Alsabah are serious dancers, who have a very busy class, practice, and performance schedule representing the largest belly dance studio in the United States and one of, if not THE, largest belly dance studio in the world. They represent the studios at Women's Charity Events, Festivals, & Dance Showcases. Some members of Nazeem Alsabah also dance professionally as part of the Nazeem Allayl organization and have performed as soloists at many Atlanta restaurants as well as at parties, weddings, corporate events and the like. Nazeem Alsabah members are also Teaching Assistants at both of our studios and occasionally substitute as a lead teacher.
