Pyramid Road was founded in 2010 by Lake Norman dancer Zuleikha. The main focus of Pyramid Road is to compliment the great instruction provided locally by sponsoring workshops and providing additional dance opportunities for the belly dance community.
Having attended and enjoyed many workshops in the US as well as Ahlan Wa Sahlan in Egypt and Egypto En Barcelona in Spain, Zuleikha's dream is to bring both National and International instructors to the Carolinas so she and her fellow dancers can learn and grow together. Zuleikha has trained with many different workshop instructors and while she considers Virginia her master instructor and mentor, she also continually trains with Munique Neith, Yousry Sharif, Amir Thaleb, Mohamed Shahin, and Randa on as often as possible. Other significant workshop instructors for her are Dr. Mo Gedhawi, Marta Korzun, Mahaila El Helwa, Tito Seif, Saida of Argentina, Yamil Annum, Nour, Wael Mounsour, Mercedies Neito, Faten Salama, Fatheim, and Kaeshi.
