What We Do



Jensuya Belly Dance is the performance art and teaching company of my husband, Robert Peak, and me, Jennifer "Jensuya" Carpenter-Peak.  With a focus on dance and music of the Near East and Mediterranean regions, we teach and entertain with Middle Eastern music, belly dance, folk dance, and culture through public and private performances, online classes and courses, workshops, YouTube videos, and education programs. TarabRaqs Mid East Arts Education is our school division of Jensuya Belly Dance.

What we do

“Jensuya is an amazing teacher—she is a gifted dancer AND teacher—she knows how to teach beginners through advanced. A consummate professional. Her workshops are SO FUN!”  —Tracey F.

Classes & Courses

Jensuya Belly Dance School

We teach belly dance organically.  From your very first belly dance class, we are integrating music, technique, body fitness, and culture so that each class or course with us is like taking a little journey to the Middle East as you learn to belly dance.

“What an awesome evening!  The pair (Jensuya & Bob) make a great combo—and it is SO RARE to have live drumming as you dance.  I've seen them several times performing...fantastic show.”  —Tara S.
