On Feb.13, 2015, I had the wonderful experience of performing a taqsim improvisation. The musical piece was an older Egyptian style played on the Kanun by Dr. George Sawa and interpreted by me through dance and movement. In this video different modes of emotions were exhibited by me as I was really trying to express the feelings from the musical piece played by Dr. George Sawa.

On Dec. 17, 2014 I performed at the St. Clair West Senior Services Christmas Party. It was my first time performing for an older audience, and the guests were so excited. A lot of the them wanted to participate and dance. Here’s the video of the show, and I am so happy to share it with you. Happy Holidays!
After performing and observing bellydance for so many years, I have finally to come to the conclusion, that I can contribute more creative aspects to the art form, and that I have to approach the dance from a different perspective.
In my last 3 videos which were recorded in nature, the energy from the outdoors was much different than performing in a stage setting.
I have added different elements to my performances which birthed new and creative ideas on presenting my work as a Bellydance artist. I accept that I am not a conformist or a follower. The creative process of this project was exhilarating, and I’m really glad that I am able to share it with you.

I love Daytime Toronto! It was so much fun to be on a show with really great guests, a fantastic TV crew and the host Glenn Dixon. I had an opportunity to promote my new instructional video and do a short performance. Glenn was a real sport doing some bellydance moves with me.
I received the email that Daytime Toronto would like to bring me on the show. I was so humbled and thrilled. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect on the day of the show. I was a bit nervous as I thought it was a live taping. But everything turned out fabulous! Val Cole was a really great host, lots of energy, and a very upbeat personality! I had a really great time showing her some moves. She got the hip circle right after a few minutes.
