Najia's Dance Companies
Najia is known for her award winning "1001Dreams" classic Middle Eastern dance at it's
best. The purpose of the dance company “1001 Dreams was to make the dreams come true for
her students who have a serious love and dedication for this dance form. More than half
of Najia's troupe members became professional bellydancers with less than one year of
rigorous training. Not all members decide to solo freelance but enjoy the camaraderie
of the group and find troupe classes the one most rewarding experience of their lives.

Najia and members of her dance company, “1001 Dreams” were selected in a nationwide
search to be featured on the new television show, “Splurge” that will air in the Fall
of 2007. After extensive casting interviews with Najia’s students, Jenny Di Donato and
Shalimar were selected to be featured because of the wonderful way their bellydance.
“Splurge” had enriched their lives. Troupe members Danielle, Ewelina, Michelle and
Laura were also belly dancing on the show.

Jenny and Najia’s
Jenny, from Media, decided to take class with Najia less than three years ago. She was
hooked immediately and took up to four classes a week at times. Always shy and withdrawn,
Jenny gained confidence from Najia’s lessons and applied it to all aspects of her life.
Now she works full time, has returned to school to pursue a nursing degree and dances
professionally. Learning to bellydance with Najia has shown her that anything is
possible if you believe in yourself.

Shalimar, a Havertown PA resident and logistics analyst took her first class with Najia
several years ago. Since then, she has experienced dramatic improvements in her body
posture and flexibility. Shalimars love of dance has inspired her to design and create
original bellydance costumes.
