What to Expect
Iorra specializes in teaching students and performing bellygrams. Any potential bellygram or teaching opportunity will be discussed at length so both Iorra and the client will know what to expect from the event. Full contracts will be provided which will include all details of the event.
Iorra started Middle Eastern dance in 2002 (often called bellydance), with previous traditional dance experience since the age of five. She has always loved performing and was an active child, learning to swim barely after the time she could walk! As she grew older, she branched out into many different styles of dance, picking up elements of everything from breakdancing to aerial silks, hooping, and the flow arts. While her primary focus is dance, she enjoys dedicating small amounts of time to growing her hobbies and taking the time to relax.
Iorra devotes training to increase her skills by attending workshops with master and local teachers, and performs with a variety of props (sword, zills, basket, veil, Isis wings, fan veil, candles, tambourine, cane, drum, poi). She performs in both group and solo settings (Mosaic, bellygrams, restaurant/bar performances upon request) and also offers 'Girls Night In' mini classes for the perfect one-time experience.
