A'isha is a professional Oriental-style belly dancer in the Kansas City area. She has trained with local instructors (Zada Al Gaziyeh, Zaina, Melody Gabrielle, Asha Diana), and travelled extensively nationally to attend workshops taught by well-known teachers in Middle Eastern dancing, such as Amani Jabril, Elena Lentini, Cassandra, Ozgen, Luna of Cairo and others. Her favorite dance styles are classic Egyptian, American Cabaret, Turkish and Middle Eastern folkloric. She performs regularly at local and national belly dance shows, fundraisers, art shows and private events.
In addition, she also enjoys performing Polynesian dances (Hawaiian hula and Tahitian drum solo) and Greek dances. She is training in Polynesian dance with kumu Debbie Rommel in Hula Hale O'Kiahahi.
For her, dance is the gift of happiness and liveliness that she likes to share with her audience.
A'isha is available for weddings, birthday parties, fund raisers, belly-grams, bachelorette parties, etc. Typically, one set consists of 20-30 minutes of dance, use of props (zills, veil, cane) and audience engagement, but she would accommodate other arrangements based on her clients' needs.
She is performing monthly in the 1001 Arabian Nights show at the Uptown Arts Bar (KCMO), second Saturday of each month starting at 8 PM, and also at Al-Amir Hookah lounge every Saturday starting at 10 PM (Kansas City, MO).
Birthday Party (Adults) in Shawnee, KS on 09/01/2013
"We have seen A’isha dance at our friends’ wedding a few months ago and were impressed by her style and knowledge of the Middle-Eastern belly dancing. She was fun and entertaining and all the guests had a really good time. So we have contracted her to come dance at this birthday party in our family, and she exceeded our expectations! A’isha was the highlight of our evening! After she danced beautifully, she taught us some moves and we all did a fun group dance. Our family is from the Middle East and we appreciate her authentic Oriental-style belly dance, as well as her professional conduct. We highly recommend her and will hire her again! "
