Care Center Community enjoyed the performance. Great performance, gorgeous costume, professional dance.
Where does one go to find a Belly dancer? I too was perplexed and found Shaula via Gigsalad. Shaula was great, on time and she really loves what she does and our dinner party enjoyed her immensely. Loved the last 20 minutes where she got our gals up to give a go at the belly dancing themselves. Would definitely book Shaula again.
Prompt, polite, and professional. Thank you for dancing at our party!

What to Expect
Anyone that attends one of my live performances can expect to be thoroughly entertained. I perform from the inside, out. I have worked in customer service since age eight and I know that pride, personality, and providing the best quality product are key. I perform in the highest quality cabaret costumes with performance hair and make-up. Spectators will witness the discipline and skills I have learned over the past seven years along with my natural love of dance and bringing happiness into peoples lives.
I also offer private beginning Egyptian Cabaret style belly dance classes for any woman age 18 and up that wants to get in shape while having fun and learning a new dance style. My classes focus on building your core skills by learning proper posture and technique. As each student advances their skills they will be taught a small choreography and ultimately a performance piece.

Influences & Inspiration
I first knew I wanted to be a belly dancer when I was eight years old. I was walking on the promenade in Ventura with my family during one of the street fairs and there she was shining and jingling with hair all the way down her back. :) It was almost 20 years before I actually took a class and I fell in love all over again. My teachers have both been performing for almost 15 years and still inspire me every day and always encourage me to carry on the legacy of belly dance to inspire future generations.
