Evansville Belly Dance was formed to promote the art of Middle Eastern, North African, and Central Asian dance in Evansville and the surrounding areas, and to encourage exploration of Middle Eastern music and culture.
Aziyade was introduced to Middle Eastern music through her father's collection of old "Hookah Lounge" LPs. In 1995 she came across a videotape of American belly dancer Alexandra King and immediately fell in love with this amazing dance form. Over the years she has traveled the country to study with many of the masters of Egyptian dance, and has worked extensively with choreographers Shareen el Safy, Hadia, and Suhaila Salimpour.
