Testimonials

There is no amount of stars on this page to express the Om Laila experience. About eight years ago I saw a flyer on a telephone pole and the rest is history. I started classes with Roula Said and although over the years I have learned from many others, Om Laila remains my foundation, where I learned not just moves but about the different cultural and musical contexts of middle eastern dance. Roula brings both tradition and innovation in her skills and knowledge of music and movement. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned dancer, Om Laila will help you get deeper into your movement. From Roula, I have learned bellydance, movement, arabic music and zyll accompaniment. Om Laila is a welcoming studio of small classes so you will have the individual guidance of the one and only Roula Said even in a group setting.
