Meet Team SharQui


Founder of SharQuí - The Bellydance Workout

Oreet has over 20 years of experience in fitness and dance. She grew up with Yemeni folk and Oriental dance and has a degree in Contemporary Dance from SUNY College at Brockport. SharQuí has been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN, among other outlets. Some of Oreet’s bellydance awards are: Bellydancer of the Year, and Middle Eastern Dance Champion of North America. She’s led packed classes worldwide and has worked with thousands of men and women to realize their fitness potential. 

Some other tidbits: Oreet loves spending time with her husband and kids, having a glass of wine (if you have a husband and kids, you’ll understand…) and binging wedding shows and dog videos. And dancing, of course – SharQuí isn’t just Oreet’s profession; it keeps her sane!
