Azziza® is creator of Bellydi®, “The Sweeter Way to Sweat”. Belly dancing fitness that is so much fun, it makes you giggle while you wiggle.
This NY Belly dancing starlet started her journey in 1995 when she was searching for a fun way to get fit. After walking into Renate’s Harem Belly Dance Studio in Baldwin NY, she was bitten by the belly bug. Azziza® joined Renate’s troupe “The Goddesses Bas Harem” and delved deeply into her passion. A few years later, Azziza® moved into New York City, quit her day job and became a full time belly dancer.
Azziza® enjoyed 6 years in the Big Apple. She performed 7 nights a week for many celebrities including Puff Daddy, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Kirsten Dunst. Azziza studied with a myriad of Egyptian teachers through the Egyptian Academy of Oriental Dance. Azziza® also studied and danced in Turkey and Egypt. With her obligations in NY, she had to turn down a contract in Egypt at the Cairo Meridien on the Nile.

How do you feel about getting more out of life than you currently do? Can I ask you if you’ve found it harder than you thought it would be to achieve all you’ve wanted in life? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a simple way you could learn to think that made it easier to succeed and get what you want, than it was to struggle and eventually fail… Can you imagine it being easier to succeed than to fail?
