About Abigail "Asharah" Keyes
Abigail Keyes is a dancer and dance educator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With a background in Middle Eastern studies, her focus is on belly dance and Middle Eastern folk dances, as well as their Euro-American fusions. Her diverse professional skills (from writing for top US policy makers to teaching dance workshops with over 90 people in attendance, as well as in-depth study of modern dance and Pilates) make her uniquely situated as both a mover and teacher.

She wishes to foster curiosity, a strong work ethic, creativity and individuality, as well as an overall improved sense of physical and mental well-being in all of her students. Whether she is teaching Suhaila Salimpour or Jamila Salimpour Formats, Creative Dance-based workshops, or anything else in between, she believes that the experience and enrichment of the student is paramount. Exchanging knowledge—physical, historical, cultural, and creative—is the ultimate goal of every class, for beginners and experienced dancers alike.

Abigail is currently earning an M.A. in Dance at Mills College in Oakland, with focus on history and pedagogy. She is certified Level 4 in the Suhaila Salimpour Format—the first ever tiered certification program in belly dance—Level 3 in the Jamila Salimpour Format, and is working towards the Level 5 teaching certification in both programs. Additionally, she holds a B.A. from Princeton University in Near Eastern Studies. She is a staff instructor at the Salimpour School of Belly Dance, is a member of the Suhaila Dance Company, has appeared with Zoe Jakes’ Bhoomi Project and Beats Antique to audiences of over 3,000 people, and performs regularly with Bal Anat, the longest-running belly dance company in the world.
