Belly Dance Performances

I have been a Professional Belly Dance Performer and Instructor in the Northeastern states since 2002. I have appeared at hotels, Atlantic City Casinos (Harrah’s, Borgata, and Golden Nugget), showcases, festivals, country clubs, universities, charity events, and performed with dance companies. I have been requested by invitation to perform for the Turkish Ambassador to the United States, and to appear in Cairo, Egypt. I have performed on stage as Lola in an off-Broadway rendition of the Damn Yankees in New York City.

I have also given dance instruction lessons, and lectures on the ancient art form of Middle Eastern Dance at several colleges and dance studios throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding states. I have had many articles published that I have written on Middle Eastern Dance that embody the true essence of this art form.

My studies included lessons in the Egyptian, Turkish, Lebanese, and American Cabaret styles of dance.
