Performing in Saint Thomas
I began studying Egyptian belly dance (Oriental Dance) at the Academy of Egyptian Dance , directed by Sahar Sami in San Diego, CA and I was hooked from the beginning. The beauty of the dance, the femininity and the challenge all spoke to me! I was lucky to find my dance mentor and teacher, Sahar Sami. Through her mentorship and teaching I have grown immensely as a dancer, teacher, choreographer and performer. While I am always learning, I am proof of what one can achieve!
I’m a mulit-award winning dancer and a certified teacher. I've had the pleasure of dancing and teaching in the US and Egypt. I'm the Director of the Glitter Dance Company, a Student Dance Troupe and a member of the Sahar Dance Company, a professional troupe, as the lead dancer. I am a certified instructor through the Academy of Egyptian dance and I've studied with the best Egyptian Dance teachers here and in Egypt. Teachers such as, Mahmoud Reda, Farida Fahmy, Mohamed Kazafy, Ahmed Husein, Yousry Sharif and Tito Seif, to name a few. I've also performed with master tabla players Gamal Goma and Amir Sofi.
I'm now based in Ventura County, CA and I'd love to be able to share my passion and expertise in Egyptian Dance with you!
