Meet your SHIMMY SOUL Instructors: Alexandra Molina

Alexandra Molina
is both a Visual Artist and Oriental Dance Professional based out of Miami, Florida. She began her training with Portia Lange of Belly Motions in 2005 and now has over 12 years of dance training from local and internationally acclaimed Master Instructors.

Known  for her graceful, juicy and spirited style, Alexandra brings Miami's spicy flavor to New Orleans! She specializes in the sweetness of Egyptian style and likes to combine the vibrant energy of Lebanese style in her performances.  

In the studio she guides students to explore their own uniqueness, training them from both a fitness-model and a soul-body perspective, believing that without a deeper connection to ourselves we would not be able to connect our bodies to perform the empowering art of Oriental Dance. Her aim is to help students feel grounded and well-connected to the dance and its History and Culture.

Alexandra holds regular weekly classes at Belly Motions, World Dance Studio in Miami, FL. For more on her work with Art and Dance, visit
