TAQ Belly Dance School

This new launch heralds one of the most exciting departures ever taken by The Arab Quarter. The launch of The Arab Quarter Dance School will take place in January 2019 with Eve Layali and Shakira Jacobs opening their first classes. Eve and Shakira have been training with Melanie Norman for several years now and are currently undergoing intensive personalised weekly training to prepare them to give of their very best. Their dedication, loyalty and hard work are second to none and their dancing is bearing the fruits. Their training with Melanie Norman will be ongoing and they will dance with Melanie Norman in The Arab Quarter Dance Company and play a major part in the future of TAQ’s development and growth.
