Working from the heart of rhythm, Zuleikha teaches throughout the world. Zuleikha offers participants a chance to explore the open world of feeling through the physicality of movement. Using world music, chant, and poetry, a spacious atmosphere becomes an invitation to commune with one’s innermost feelings.

Yes! I would like to do this again.” – Alicia Pugh, San Francisco Lines Ballet studentRead More »
