Outstanding performance! Very beautiful costume! We congratulate ourselves for the choice we made. It was the best moment of the party. Our gustes loved Alessandra! And she managed it great, she made her entrance smoothly, found the dance floor and worked great with a poor location (small room, small dance floor, no room to dress up). Believe me it's a great idea to have a belly dancer at your party. It's a very sensual entertaining moment.
Response from Alessandra:
Oana, thank you so much for your kind words and nice review I'm so happy to hear you were pleased with the performance. It was such a pleasure dancing for you and your guests. You were all such a fun group of people! I wish you and your husband a lifetime of love and happiness.
My husband and I had the opportunity to watch Alessandra dance at Harissa, and she is fantastic. She is beautiful and very graceful. Her isolations are impressive. Truly authentic and a true pleasure to watch. We loved it! Also, her costume was gorgeous!
I watched Alessandra dance at Harissa, a small Mediterranean restaurant. She was the last dancer of the night and absolutely stole the show. She was very professional and attentive to the crowd, while putting on an amazing performance. Her movements were so well timed and precise, I was very impressed with the control she had over her movements and body, plus her costume was amazing! A very beautiful and talented dancer, a thrill to watch perform.
I've seen her dance at a number of events in/around Seattle and I'm always impressed. She interacts with the audience and keeps them wanting more. Very entertaining and I highly recommend her for any event you might have coming up.

For Alessandra, dance has been her life long passion and joy. When she was introduced to belly dance in 2008 she fell in love instantly. Her journey through this ancient, magical, and sensual art form has continued ever since.
Alessandra performs regularly as a solo artist throughout the Seattle area, including being one of the house dancers at Spiro's Greek Island in Kent, Kasbah Restaurant in Seattle, Cliffhanger Sports Bar in Lynnwood, and Petra Mediterranean Bistro in Seattle. She is also a member of the troupe Lunaria Dance Theatre, which performs cabaret and fusion belly dance. She previously danced with Karavans, which performs Middle Eastern folkloric dance.

Alessandra previously taught classes through the University of Washington's Experimental College from 2013 to 2015. She also previously taught classes at the Ballard, Mill Creek, and Everett LA Fitness locations between 2010 and 2012, and at Fresh Fitness and Dance in Wallingford from 2011 to 2012.
Adding to her dance and fitness experience and credentials, Alessandra previously taught aerobics through the City of Seattle Parks and Recreation. She has also studied jazz and ballet, and she is an avid fitness enthusiast.
Rounding out her development as a dancer, is Alessandra's 20+ years as a violinist, which contribute to her understanding of musical phrasing, rhythms, and interpretation.
