Om Laila’s Badass Bellydance Bash






Om Laila and Nomadica had an amazing show on Saturday night at Mây Cafe. Many of our friends came out to see us perform and to celebrate the start of the holiday season. Soloists, Melissa Gamal, Michelle MacAleese and Miruna Soiu rocked their performances and Om’s students also brought it in a big way!! Here’s the videos from the performing classes. The first is the Om Laila Bellydance Choir’s back to back number Ala Warag il Foul and the Zill/Drum Solo, which was also a collaboration between level 3 and the Musical Dancer class.

Great Show On Saturday and More to Come on December 13


Posted on November 10, 2014


– Art by Laila (Roula’s Daughter)


The show on Saturday night was a lot of fun. The energy was fantastic. We love dancing to a live band. It’s such a cool vibe.


One of the most exciting parts of the show was the Om Laila Bellydance Choir’s re-debut. Back in July when the studio hosted the Steamy Summer Celebration at Mây Cafe the choir was just a sprout with a couple of songs and members. The ensemble has gorwn! Check them out now!




Every performance was amazing, including a solo from our Flamenco turned belly dancer Alexandra Talbot!





The next show is on Saturday December 13 and this one will be a student showcase with guest dancers including solo and group pieces. The entire show will be to live music, which is pretty darn cool!


Stay tuned for details!

Nomadica with Om Laila Dancers and Guests – Nov 8 at May Cafe


Posted on October 31, 2014




The seasons are changing and it’s the perfect opportunity to spend more time indoors bellydancing! Autumn is a time of letting go, itemizing blessings, recounting joys and balancing dark with light. Try reflecting on this significant seasonal change while walking the path to the studio and enjoying the garden’s new fall look!



Latest Happenings


Om Laila is preparing for a show that will be taking place on Saturday November 8 at May Cafe. The venue is at 876 Dundas Street West and is ideal for dinner, drinks and pinball! This show will feature 3 talented dancers: Alexandra Talbot, Anuka and Saba. We are also happy to re-debut a more grown up version of the Om Laila Bellydance Choir that will include 3 dancers and 6 singers!


You can purchase advance tickets through Paypal or get in at the door for $20


And remember to join the Event Group on Facebook for updates!


While you are eagerly awaiting next Saturday enjoy this performance by Roula from a show at Lula Lounge last week. This Ala Warag Il Foull choreography is being taught in the Level 3 class!




Om Laila studio is into a new fall term. Most classes are full or are filling up but it’s never too late to drop in or join a class that still has some space. Write to info@omlaila.com to check availability and to come by for belly dancing or singing. The studio is also now taking payments by credit card!


The final Sing, Dance and Bring the Drama Warda workshop is sold out but there is a waiting list so write to Roula if you are interested in coming out to dig deep into the song, Batwannes Beek.


The Choir is still free to current students and $50/7 weeks otherwise. We rehearse Thursday at 7 and learning the choreography to the songs we are learning is at 8pm (PWYC)
