The Instructor

Jeni Paradiso
Yoga Ambassador

My obsession with belly dance began at seven years old when I was taken to a Lebonese restaurant and adoringly glared at the “sparkly” dancer. I was gifted with a private lesson and the love affair with the dance genre was born. I then made my own costumes, putting on shows for family, and promised myself I would someday become a belly dancer. After only several classes with a belly dance instructor while in college, I was asked to train professionally. After studying traditional styles of the Middle East, I have now adapted my own personal style to reflect the tradition juxtaposed with many years of formal Western dance training.

My unique fusion of belly dance is all inclusive and welcomes all body types, activity levels, and ages. I incorporate many years of Western style dances and knowledge of proper alignment while learning traditional, varied belly dance styles. My classes are a great workout for all, including pregnant women and are even safe and recommended for those recovering from injuries because of the natural movements found in belly dance. You will strengthen your core in a way no amount of crunches can and get fit without putting any stress on the joints. 

I can be found in the Philadelphia area and traveling to many regions such as Colombia, Europe and California performing solo gigs and with my belly dance troupe, the Shimmies as well as teaching many classes for Shimmy Studios, such as Belly Cardio, Belly Drills and Dance Party Fitness and Barre & Brunch and Sensual Chair Dance. I am also the producer of the show Sabroso! which is a multi genre dance performance show combining belly dance, burlesque, Latin, Hip Hop and many more genres!

Feel amazing, experience a unique dance, improve your fitness, and belong to an amazing community of women. Come shimmy with us!
