Henna has been studying and performing belly dance since 2002. Known for her passionate expression and charming personality on stage, she danced regularly at various events and venues in Tokyo, Japan for four years before returning to the U.S. in 2009. Middle Eastern audiences enjoy her natural style and solid understanding of Arabic and Turkish rhythms and instrumentation.
In addition to traditional styles of belly dance (a.k.a. raks sharki or Dans Oriental), Henna enjoys pushing the boundaries of movement and music by fusing anything that inspires her to dance. Henna continues to study the roots of modern day belly dance and has a passion for Middle Eastern music. She believes in the evolution of belly dance as a modern dance form as well as an ancient, celebratory ritual.
She teaches and performs as a soloist and collaborates with the top dancers and musicians in the Northwest.
Additional Booking Notes
Upon booking, it is important to let Henna know the type of flooring the performance will take place on. Shoes are not usually worn during a bellydance performance so the ideal flooring is hardwood or similar. Any even surface can be danced upon with shoes or without, however lawns can be difficult since they are often knotty or uneven making it difficult to move around on.
Audio should also be taken into account. Henna will bring a CD and/or iPod and the louder the sound system, the better! If the event is outdoors, please test the sound system to ensure that it is loud enough before Henna's arrival. Once she arrives it is a good idea to test the CD or iPod before the performance. Keeping the bellydancer out of sight of your guests retains the mystique!
