Beautiful, sexy and good dancer
I booked Anne for my parents 50th anniversary. As she was changing, it started to pour rain and I mean it came down!!! Anne and I decided to wait ten minutes to see if it would stop and it did. Wiped down the deck and out she came! Winged it and everyone loved her! A perfect fit for my parents day. I highly recommend her, you will love the energy she brings to your event!
We snuck Anne into my husbands 50th to surprise the Birthday Boy and the look on his face was priceless. He was actually speechless for a minute as Anne proceeded to mesmerize the guests with her abilities. She is the ultimate icebreaker, I am so glad we hired her.
Anne is a great professional dancer. She is super energetic and love to dance. She performed at my cousin's wedding in Saudi Arabic. Although, all of the crowd grew up with Egyptian dancing. They all were AMAZED of how well she can dance. They could not believe that she did not learn how to dance since she were a child.
I HIGHLY recommend her. She is the best with a great personality.

What to Expect
Belly dance is perfect to get a party started, and this is what Anne excels at! She will embody the beauty, joy and fluidity of Egyptian cabaret-style belly dance, while rockin' it out on the dance floor at your upcoming event. Her solo performances vary, and will include elements from various belly-dance styles, including interpretations of both pop and folkloric elements.
If hired for speaking engagements, she can discuss the dance's history, and then provide some illustration through performance and audience participation! Active learning at its best.

Influences & Inspiration
Modern Egyptian belly dance is Anne's main influence. The graceful, fluid, powerful movements of dancers like Fifi Abdou, Dina, and Tahiya Karioka are some of her greatest inspirations. The stylizations of Mahmoud Reda have also influenced her dance style. Anne has been studying Egyptian cabaret-style belly dance beginning in 2011. She has also begun studying both Khaliji and Iraqi dance-styles. Her main musical and dance mentor has been Dharlene Valeda of Haft Vadi Studio and the Light of East Ensemble. Anne has also enjoyed mentoring from other amazing dancers in the region, including Roula Said of Om Leila Studio and Joharah of Belly Up.
