Hi! I’ve performed in Egypt, Dallas, Seattle, and communities across Canada from Calgary to Lunenburg, and I’m lucky to have extensive performing, training and teaching experience! For example, I performed at a birthday party for world musician and percussionist Hossam Ramzy in 2015. I also performed in Dallas during Egyptian superstar Randa Kamel’s intensive course in 2014, and studied with her again in Toronto in fall 2016. From Hadia to Jillina, Raquia Hassan to Khairiyya Mazin, I’ve been fortunate to train with world class performers and musicians.
My philosophy is that every woman is beautiful when she dances. My classes emphasize having fun and experiencing the friendship of the dance community while building the dancer’s self-confidence and technique.
My mission is to impart the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and ethics that are vital for the next generation of instructors and performers. To this end, I offer performance opportunities to my students and other dancers and host innovative, collaborative events, such as the annual Shiver & Shimmy dance show in Regina.
