The Salimpour School of Dance:
Jamila has been teaching her format and finger cymbal instruction method since 1949. She continued to evolve and develop step familes throughout the years. In the late 1970s the format was compiled in the Danse Orientale manual; soon thereafter, Suhaila was filmed teaching the format in the Archive Series.

Suhaila’s certification program provides a well-rounded curriculum to train students to become complete belly dancers.

Suhaila Salimpour is a highly-acclaimed belly dance performer, teacher, and choreographer. As a teenager, she began integrating the Middle Eastern dance passed on to her from her mother, Jamila Salimpour, with her own extensive training in ballet, jazz, tap, and American street styles. After working as a professional belly dance performer in the Middle East for over 10 years, she established her school and certification program in the United States in the late 1990s. She has choreographed hundreds of dances, from the classic to the avant garde, and was nominated for an Isadora Duncan award for solo performance in 2005. Her methods and approach to teaching belly dance is a true artistic breakthrough: a revolutionary technique that has elevated belly dance practice and performance. Her technique and methods are now used by dancers in all stylizations, and the Salimpour School is one of the most respected and influential schools of belly dance in the world
