Kahina Asurah, native to the Ukraine, is a professional belly dance artist. Kahina performs Egyptian cabaret and modern Egyptian dance. While involved in Middle Eastern dance for several years, she continues to study under one of the most influential teachers in the Philadelphia area.
Kahina expresses "that it is difficult to explain her fascination with dance in a simple, linear way. One can start by discussing the feminine, spiritual or self-expressive side of dance, and one can mention that most of the ancient civilizations used dance as a ritualistic tool for communicating with the divine; but she thinks that dance also helps us to understand our roots, the world around us, and ourselves".
Kahina started dancing early in her childhood, while spending summers in the Black Sea region and in the Steppes, where she stayed with her grandmother. Her first memory about dancing is the vision of caravans of gypsies wearing colorful skirts, singing and dancing. Their bodies moving in hypnotic motions, bestowing spells on those around them. She reveals: "I am certain it cast a spell on me then; and now, much later in time, and on a different continent, I still feel the power of that enchanted potion".
Beside studying the art of Middle Eastern dance, Kahina earned a graduate degree in anthropology. She travels (and has been living in some countries) around the world to achieve a deeper understanding of dance, its cultural significance and its sacred and primordial nature.
Kahina will work with you to customize an appearance at your next event, ensuring that you and your guests have an enjoyable time. She will put in extra effort to make sure no detail is overlooked. She enjoys dancing at private events such as birthday parties and family events where she encourages audience participation. She also enjoys corporate events, engagement, graduation parties, holiday celebrations, grand-openings, festivals, and cultural presentations. Due to her professional standards and respect for preserving the authenticity of Middle Eastern dance she will not appear at all-male parties or bachelor parties.

Kahina,s performance was incredible. Our guest of honor completely enjoyed his first belly dance performance. She danced for him, for the crowd and even convinced our birthday boy to dance with her.
