Teacher Thursday: Meet our OMazing belly dance teacher @susu_fit_fab ! Being born in Jerusalem - Palestine belly dance was something she was familiar with. She came to the states when she was 17 years old. While living in Chicago in 2002 she began going to a small studio for women that offered several kinds of dance. She noticed that they did not offer Arabian dance and quickly asked the owner why not. They owner told her it was because they did not have a teacher - Susu joked that she could teach it. The next week she saw that they had added Arabian dance to their schedule. Excited about the class, she asked the owner about it - who told her that she was the teacher! She has no idea how to teach, the names of any moves, and her english was broken! She stood in front of the class and began dancing what she knew from back home and everyone followed. Susu quickly discovered that her calling to teaching had been thrown into her life and her passion quickly grew. She was full of gratitude and ready to begin her journey as a belly dance teacher. She studied a video called “Neena and Deena” to teach herself names and technique, and began taking classes in everything (yoga, kickboxing, zumba, etc.) to learn to teach and taught herself skills that would help her grow in dance. Her Belly Dance Fit classes at the studio began to grow and soon she was receiving calls from studios all over chicago asking for her to come teach. Her passion for teaching is endlessly inspired by her empowered students - their uplifted moods and confidence. Her classes allow for women to connect and celebrate their femininity through the art of belly dancing.
