Imagine a world with less fear and detachment. A world with more joy and connection.

As artists and performers, we have the ability to share our emotional responses to the music with the audience, inviting them into our experience.

Amid the glamour, the flash, and the hip drops, we have the amazing power to spread joy and cultural understanding through our dance.

You’ll learn:

  • The power of dance as a personal practice
  • The gift of connection in dance (for you and for the audience)

We’ll also have some discussion time, so you can ask Alia your questions.


This free call will take place on Monday, February 27 at 8pm Eastern Time.
(see that in your own time zone)

You can attend by phone or Skype, or listen on the web.

If you can’t attend live, don’t worry!
The call will be recorded, so you can listen later.

  1. OMG, this was such a fantastic episode.

    I’m a family practice physician and dealing with trauma is a huge part of medical care. The medical community is just starting to come to grips with how much we need to heal trauma before we can heal other things.

    In addition, medical training is hugely trauma-inducing. Talk about being verbally abused and helpless and someone else’s life being dependent on your actions while you’re in that situation…

    No wonder I fell in love with Arabic dance when I discovered it. It’s very healing. Now I’m dreaming about having Arabic dance improvisation group visits for my patients to help with their trauma, lol.

    Thanks for such an insightful and evidence-based discussion!
