Oreet - SharQuí Founder

The creator 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. I’ve led packed classes worldwide and have worked with thousands of men and women to realize their fitness potential. I also have my own fitness and dance video library at SharQuiTV.com!

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!
