Practicing the Art of Egyptian Dance
As “Badia” the Award Winning Belly Dancer
My style is hard to describe. I guess you can say that I am a highly innovative creative entity that follows no rules! I strive to be true to my soul and spirit as an artist, definitely a modern triple threat on stage and screen.
Upon moving to California, I discovered a wonderful treasure of art history… an original Middle Eastern Belly Dancer, classically trained in Egyptian Raqs Sharki. Jodette, “Camillia of Jordan”, was a classic triple threat in song dance and Egyptian film.
After gaining great insight from Jodette, I turned to my theatre craft to build the personae of “Badia”, a classically trained modern styled dancer that has led me to a number of great performances and awards.
