What to Expect
An energetic, uplifting, elegant, warm and friendly performance. Family friendly. VERY high quality dancer and costumes. Every costume is couture imported from Egypt and Lebanon. There is a reason she is one of the most in-demand dancers in the Midwest and has been hired in Italy, France, Mexico, California, to name a few.
She even turned down an opportunity to dance for (we won't say who, but you can guess), a certain President of the United States.
Get the audience dancing on their feet, Lana performs beautiful solo shows or with her dance troop with one, two, three and up to six dancers. She is also one of Michigan's leading instructors. The goal: a show that highlights YOUR event. :)

Egyptian, Lebanese, Turkish belly dance. Her audiences are Chaldean, Jordanian Yemen, Italian, Polish, French, from India, African American, Senegalese, Brazilian, German, Korean, Eastern European - you name it, she has danced for all!
