Saiedah is known for her vivacious and lively interpretation of Middle Eastern music. Her style can be described as vintage with a modern twist as she takes her audiences back in time to the Golden Era of belly dance. Growing up in a family of dancers,singers and party promoters has given her the knowledge to handle events of all kinds with detail and professionalism. Her love of belly dance originates from her deep love of Egyptian culture. Saiedah believes that you must love what you do in order to provide the best service possible.
With Saiedah, there is NO WESTERNIZED style belly dancing! Every minute of her performance is pure Arabic style belly dancing with authentic music and authentic props. This is a very rare scene today as the true essence of Raks Sharki is slowly disappearing and being replaced by over counted and over analyzed styles with costumes that leave little to the imagination. Crave that earthy and genuine style of belly dance? Prepare to be whisked away to the Age of the Pharaohs and have your guests talking about your event for 1001 Arabian Nights!
Saiedah stays true to the art of Raks Sharki by utilizing her amazing improvisational skills. Improvisation is at the very heart of Egyptian belly dance and Saiedah does this with ease, leaving her audiences spellbound. The innate ability to pick up on new techniques so quickly is uncanny yet easy for her. She is mainly self taught with accompanying workshops from the highest rated dancers in New York. Saiedah is self motivated and dedicated to belly dance and wants to eliminate all negative stereotypes of this art form. She prefers to perform in upscale venues that are appreciative of this art and understand that it is a dance made for royalty.
Because Saiedah takes so much pride in her dancing, every aspect is managed with detail and care. Her costumes are conventional and traditional with a modern flare and just burst with glamour and charm. Every part of Saiedah's body is decorated in sparkles,coins and beautiful fabrics. Costumes are a very important part of her performances as they accent the beauty of the dancer and the dance itself.Her props are of the highest authenticity! Finger cymbals (zills/sagat), Cane(Raksat Assaya) and veil. No swords, Isis wings or fire trays. Saiedah only uses Egyptian/Arabic props that are native to the culture.
Saiedah is VERY selective about where she performs. She only showcases her talents in the most posh, upscale and high end venues in New York and New Jersey. NO REQUESTS FOR HOUSE, BACKYARD BIRTHDAY PARTIES, HOOKAH BARS OR BACHELOR PARTIES PLEASE.
