“We were totally shocked and so grateful” to receive the award, said Myra Krien, the owner of Pomegranate Studios. “We were nominated by quite a few people apparently. It was an overwhelming vote of confidence from our clients.”

Pomegranate Studios is a dance studio that teaches “several different forms of what most Americans call belly dance,” Krien said. “We prefer to consider it as one of the Middle Eastern arts.”

The studio also offers a nine-month mentorship program for young girls every year.
