I believe that everyone has a reason to dance; personally, I dance for self-empowerment. I strive for my drive for self-empowerment and my passion for dancing to illuminate through my crowd interaction. Additionally, as a trained and certified k-12 educator, I scaffold and differentiate material for all students regardless of their dance backgrounds.
I am a founding member of Janim’s Troupe Faraatha, which performs at festivals, galas, and fundraising events. In addition to the previously named events types, I also perform at restaurants as well as various private events.
Trained in American Cabaret style of belly dance. I have studied extensively with Janim, Lisa Zahiya, and Aziza. I have also received additional instruction from Jemeena and Colleen Wilde. A few of my favorite dance workshops have been taught by Shahrzad, Nada El Masriya, Chudney Raks, and Luna of Cairo.
