Amina is a Middle Eastern dance artist based in San Francisco, California, USA, and the director of the Aswan Dancers. Her band, the Arabian Nights, plays regularly in the San Francisco area. Her studio features both belly dance classes (taught by Amina) and drum classes (taught by her daughter Susu). Amina regularly pays native speakers of Middle Eastern languages to do translations like this one for her to use in her classes.
