Suhaila Salimpour is a master choreographer, performer, and teacher. She began her dance training at the age of 2 and teaching at 14. In addition to training with her mother, Suhaila also studied ballet, jazz, tap, modern, and even hip-hop. Through years of experience as both performer and master instructor, Suhaila recognized the need to create an organized system for teaching and training in belly dance. Rather than trying to integrate Middle Eastern dance with ballet or jazz, Suhaila used the training methodology she experienced in her classical western dance studies to preserve the quality and longevity of belly dance as its own individual art form.
To fully comprehend the significance of Suhaila's contribution to belly dance, one must also understand the roots of her dance training. Suhaila's mother, Jamila Salimpour, began teaching her own unique method of training in 1949 by breaking down traditional Middle Eastern dance into standardized movement patterns and belly dance terminology. For her contribution to the dance form, Jamila was recently given the prestigious Isadora Duncan Award as a "Sustained Achievement Honoree." It is from this long history in both eastern and western dance forms, and a unique ability to merge her training from various dance forms, that Suhaila Salimpour brings you Enta Omri, "You Are My Life."
