I have studed and performed bellydance for over fourteen years. My teachers
and exemplars include Malia de Felice and Amina Goodyear. Over the years I have enjoyed workshops with Cassandra, Dalia Carella, Delilah, Farida Fahmy, Jillina, Morocco, Nadia Hamdi, Hossam and Serena Ramzy,
Rashid Salama, Shareen el Safy, and Suhaila Salimpour.
My dance style and costumes include Egyptian cabaret and beledi and Tunisian
ethnic as well as American bellydance. I balance the sword, clay water
pot, and shamadan.
My long years as a serious musician--Western classical,
Scottish traditional--have enhanced my understanding of dance as "visual
music." I am also the daughter of a teacher of Martha Graham's technique and create original choreographies. I teach beginning and intermediate Bellydance For All Bodies.
