Lauren Belly DanceBelly Dance Performer and Instructor
I took my first belly dancing class 13 years ago and fell in love. This led me to create my company, Lauren Jalbert Belly Dance, to promote the art of belly dancing and encourage others to find similar enjoyment in expressing themselves through dance. You will find me teaching belly dance classes and performing throughout Michigan, Ohio and Canada. I am the only Bellydance instructor to have taught at Lifetime Fitness and LA Fitness. I taught at Nafas Fitness in Royal Oak for 5 years as well as hosting guest instructor workshops. My first performance troupe was the Shimmy Shakers. A very unique troupe, we were brought together under one instructor. She taught us everything she knew and left us quickly. The ones who stayed stood strong, tall and confident. Together we created the Shimmy Shakers. We represented all ages from 5 to 50. We formed our own studio, beginning to practice, choreograph and start a family. We performed throughout the dance community, having so much fun doing it. 4 years later I am continuing my passion for dance. I participated in the 2007 Michigan Renaissance Festival, where they held the first belly dance competition judged by the belly dance legends Aida Al-Adawi, Princess Madiha and Aziza Ammar. I was successful in winning first place, which only further ignited my focus on belly dancing.
