Anaheed, Middle Eastern Entertainer, Belly Dancer, Teacher

Anaheed has been performing and teaching for many years. She loves sharing the joy of this art form. Belly Dancing is a powerful, feminine form of artistic expression. Give yourself the gift of dance and try Belly Dancing!

Note: Anaheed is an Armenian or Persian girl's name, sometimes spelled differently (for foreign languages it's usually phonetic choice!) as in: Anahid, Anahed, Anahita, or variation Nahed. The meaning relates to the Goddess Diana, or Moon Goddess, as well as a famous ancient Persian Queen named Anahita known for her good deeds toward her people. I use the name to honor a little bit of Middle Eastern blood in my background and as part of my real name. The spelling is my choice for easier pronunciation. (Although I still get called called "Miss Heed" on occasion!)

Recent History of "Cabaret Beledy"

In 2007 Café Beledy became Cabaret Beledy and was held at the beautiful Gotta Dance Studio Theater in Granada Hills. For several years we were lucky to have exciting live music and wonderful dance artists such as Amara, Anja, Kamaal, Catharae, Jorjana, and of course Anaheed and members of Perfumes of Araby. Regrettably, in 2011, the studio had to relocate and Cabaret Beledy went on hiatus. This year with popular demand and a re-energized format, we are bringing our variety show back with a new name "Aanaheed's Beledy Dance Show" and the same fine quality.

Anaheed's Beledy Show will continue to feature local dancers, teachers and top students performing to live or recorded music of their choice. Please join us for a variety-packed evening in a friendly, familiar location with plenty of free parking! Watch here for the latest developments.

Concert Feature

David and Anaheed in "Lotus and the Cross" In addition to Belly Dance events, Anaheed has participated in unique concerts that have included outstanding dance artists and challenging themes.

The show known as “Experimental Evening of Middle Eastern Dance,” or "EEMED," was produced by talented performer and master instructor, Amara.

In August 2000 and for several years thereafter, this local production presented works not usually seen in traditional Middle Eastern dance venues because of their controversial nature (religious, sensual, or avant garde!)

Other performers included members of Perfumes of Araby, of Amara's troupe, Ya Helewa! For more information on Amara and her productions, please check here
