Sagit was born to a Moroccan family in which belly dancing and Arabic music were always a big part of life. Her on-stage experience began early, at the age of 5, assisting her father in magic shows. By the age of 8 she started performing her own magic solos. Several years later, at the age of 12 she was mesmerized by an Indian dancer who combined magic with her Indian dance style. Sagit loved the idea of combining magic with dance and started learning Belly dance professionally. Soon after, Sagit began to stray from magic and developed an intense interest in belly dance and preformed in Israel, Germany and the US. During her mid 20's after having her first child and changing her priorities in favor of spending quality time with her family, Sagit opted out the performance aspect of the business and began focusing her professional career on teaching others this wonderful form of dance. For the past 10 years Sagit has been teaching belly dance to 100’s of women in the Los Angeles area and is known for making complex dance routines easy and fun to follow. She thoroughly enjoys passing on this authentic, beautiful and empowering art form to other women and continues to evolve and improve her teaching methods.
