Make it a celebration to remember with an award-winning belly dance performance by Carol!
As a musician, Carol fell in love with Middle Eastern music and by extension, became obsessed with what most people know as belly dance. She began her dance journey late 2008 at the Sahara School of Middle Eastern Dance in Washington, DC before moving to her current home base in 2010, the greater Seattle area. Since then, she has studied either privately or through workshops with Tamalyn Dallal, Jillina, Elisa Gamal, Nadira, Raqia Hassan, and many other well respected artists of the genre. Her most recent and notable achievements include taking 1st place in the Improvisation category at Bellydancer USA 2015, both professional categories of La Danse Orientale 2014, as American Pro Ambassador in the Bellydance Ambassador Competition of 2013. She also received the honor of being Peoples' Choice and 1st runner up in the Taxsim (Improvisation) category at Bellydancer of the Universe 2015. A recent trip to Egypt afforded her performance experiences there in addition to intense studies with native master teachers.
Through the dance, she lives to share the abundant joy she finds in the music and the moment. Her style is soulful and expressive, graceful but energetic, composed yet ecstatic. She is loosely influenced by the modern dancers of Cairo, but the stars of classic Egyptian cinema are closest to her heart. As a musician herself, she truly shines when given the opportunity to dance to any type of live music whether it's Middle Eastern classics, Egyptian street music, or folkloric!
Let her dance at your next celebration whether it's a birthday, wedding, bachelorette party, holiday, office party, concert, festival or any type of cultural event. Her performances can be catered and customized to your needs, and she is very family friendly. She tends to inspire others to dance as well! It truly would be and honor for her to have the opportunity to share this beautiful art with you.
