It took a long and strange series of coincidences to bring me to my first Oriental dance class. It took about five minutes to decide to stay.
I fell in love with the music and the movement, was amazed by the long, rich, and – as I’ve since learnt – often controversial historic and cultural background; the ideal of oriental dance that the dancer should make music visible resonated profoundly with me.
Having started performing in 2002, I was a member of the Amira Art Company between 2005 and 2008; in 2010, I regularly danced with the group Pasticico Meticcio in Genoa.
In October 2015, I was awarded 2nd place in classical oriental, 2nd place in folklore and 3rd place in fusion category at the BellyQueenz ontest in Luxembourg.
