Khadija and Troupe Isis8/31/2012 10:13:58 AM
Khadija learned Middle Eastern dance among family members and native dancers while living in Egypt part of each year since 1980 and leading 37 tours to the region. Khadija was guest performer at a reception in honor of former Secretary General Boutros Ghali at the United Nations, and has danced for Nile cruises in Egypt and cultural conferences in Morocco, Jordan & Greece. Khadija is a professor of Middle Eastern Dance & Culture and Arabic Language at Cape Cod Community College.
All members of Troupe Isis are regular students of Khadija's class.
You can see Troupe Isis on ‘’Transformations’, a twice-weekly local access TV show. We also produce a free event, ‘Evening in Egypt’ on the first Saturday each month, at The Chat House, route 6A in Dennis.

Our dance is for and about ALL women, of all ages and shapes, and Khadija’s classes are truly a sisterhood of joy and support. We hope you will feel the happiness that we have in sharing this dance!n Dennis.
Troupe Isis was originally formed in 2011 by Khadija, Badriyya, Samra, Nayyira, and Sayyida. Below is a little information about each of the current memebers of Troupe Isis.
Samra, Khadija, Badriyya, Sayyida (missing Nayyira) Samra
Samra was first inspired to learn the dance from listening to the middle eastern music her father played when she was growing up. She was intrigued by the dance and wanted to learn. Samra has been dancing with Khadija for almost 8 years now, and has no plans of stopping anytime soon.
Sayyida has been studying Middle Eastern dance with Khadija since 2007. Drawn to dance all her life, Sayyida finds Middle Eastern dance to be a wonderful way to feel and express the joy of life. “I love that this dance not only accepts but also celebrates women of all ages, abilities and body-type-shape. It gives women the permission to appreciate who they are, just the way they are. It allows women to reconnect with their inner strength so they can be the best they can be in all aspects of their life. All this and it’s fun too!”
