About Belly Dance with Nisaa

Hi everyone!  My name is Heather Ward, and I’m also known by my stage name, Nisaa.  I’m an instructor, performer, and researcher of Egyptian dance based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.  My research focuses on the history of the Egyptian dance form called raqs sharqi (popularly known as "belly dance").

This Patreon is for the Egyptian dance nerds out there: the ones who eat, drink, and breathe Egyptian dance, and who live for learning about the history and culture behind the dance.  Subscribe and you will be part of a community that gets insider access to my ongoing research via blogs and vlogs, mini-lectures, live online Q and A sessions, and more!

I am an independent researcher, and your patronage allows me to keep doing my research, which involves making regular trips to Egypt, investing in books and journals, and accessing period documents and photographs.  It also allows me to create products based on my research, such as books, lectures, workshops, and reconstructions of historical and traditional Egyptian dance styles.

Thank you for visiting, and I'm looking forward to sharing my research with you!
