Testimonials

I was looking for belly dance classes in Toronto and found Roula Said and Om Laila Studio through a workshop. I’m so glad I did! I have been training in Middle Eastern dance/belly dance for 4 years and since learning from Roula I have improved immensely! Roula’s studio and students are awesome, and so is she!

Naghmeh and Roula transport you with percussion and voice. <3 There are a few spots left. Are you in? https://www.facebook.com/events/1752256788343116/

WaveCradle makes a cameo at Urbanfitt. Playing with a new tool developed by @roulasaid7. Getting big thumbs up. Great for calming the nervous system and for anxiety. Sensory deprivation tool for sure with the added swinging. I always say what works to soothe babies is soothing to us too. Been described like being in a womb. #bellletstalk #anxiety #becomeyourownrescuer

Women's Voice and Percussion Crew tonight at 6. Learning a vintage Arabic folk song, working on drum and zill technique and putting it all together. Love!
