Welcome to Kansas City Karim Nagi

Heart of America – Belly Dance Kansas City is thrilled to welcome Karim Nagi to Kansas City. He will be presenting his Arabiqa educational program at one of our area elementary schools. The Arabiqa program gives young audiences a view of the human, real, and creative side of Arabs.

Karim’s reputation speaks for itself. He is highly sought after as an educator of Arab culture, rhythm, and musicality. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to host Karim on the Saturday following his school engagement.
