The Khaleegi choreography was created by Sabriye Tekbilek, one of Suhaila’s longstanding students who spent over a decade performing as a professional bellydancer in the Gulf Region. One of her specialties is Khaleegi dance. Khaleegi evolves with each generation. Sabriye’s choreography, written in 2015, demonstrates a modern Khaleegi style representing the current younger generation.
Sabriye also wrote a choreography (Leyla Khaleegi Choreography) for dancers to use in their performance sets. Access the video instruction and learn by subscription from the Salimpour School Online PPVs.
