Virginia Assad Cropped

Meet Vee

Virginia Assad (Vee) is the owner and founder of Asada Belly Dance.  Her dance journey started with jazz in 1999 but she fell in love with Middle Eastern Dance in the early 2000’s as an attempt to connect with her grandmothers Haitian Syrian roots.  Although she was not raised by her Middle Eastern family she feels at home when surrounded but the Middle Eastern music and dance.  She is also a certified yoga instructor, wife, and mother of two beautiful children.  Her goal is to educate anyone who’s path encounters hers, and help them find their way along their dance journey that God has laid out for them, through the beautiful art of Middle Eastern Dance, aka Bellydance.

Our Story

Vee's love for the Middle Eastern Dance and Yoga has introduced her to so many phenomenal dancers who share the same love for both art forms.  Her goal is to educate her students about the health benefits of both.
