Rather than write about myself I'll let these reviews speak for me.


"We had Nancy perform at our Wedding Reception and she came fully prepared to participate in our Circus Theme. She even did a unique balancing act with the glass of whiskey we used for our toast. Her personality and performance were spot on for what we wanted." T&M Brungardt - October 2010

*~*~*~*~*~

"Nancy brought a stellar performance and music choices to our 8th annual Sushi party at Supper Club. She matched her stylings to go with the upscale venue and decor, we'll have her back for the 9th annual party for sure." G Beauchemin - Nov 2010

*~*~*~*~*~

"Based on what our friends from the Sushi party said, we hired Nancy for an Private New Years Eve Event. As we'd heard she brought the professional demeanor, stellar costuming to match our theme, and fantastic music. Everyone wanted to dance with her. She also handled a very awkward situation when the music got turned off with grace and professionalism. We appreciate her coming out and look forward to having her perform again." N. Dobby - SF NYE Elevate Party 2011

"I hired Nancy after a client of mine mentioned that she knew a bellydancer who might come for my birthday party. Not only did she bring a variety of colorful costumes and music, but she even taught a mini lesson and had most of the guests and kids up dancing with her. She was a fantastic addition to the party entertainment and we wish her the best in future pursuits." J. Jacobsen Oct 2008

"A gorgeous dancer who's also a fantastic hostess. She will bring your party to life. She was a surprise at my 40th birthday party and its a day I will never forget!" D Niska Aug 2010

"Nancy is a beautiful dancer who knows how to command her space. Those silver wings are fantastic and her sword balancing act is awe inspiring. Thank You!" N Bukari Nov 2010

Are you looking for a captivating and exhilarating belly dance performance to spice up your next event? I enjoy working with clients to ensure that their party is a memorable one that their guest(s) of honor and event attendees remember fondly.

I am an award winning solo dancer who's trained in a wide range of styles of Middle Eastern Dance. From Egyptian to Turkish to American Tribal Fusion. I have been dancing professionally for 4 years at birthday parties, private events/clubs, restaurants, as well as charity fundraisers.

I enjoy dance because it allows for an interpretation of music that other people can relate to. This appreciation has blossomed into my dedication to this art form. Since my first class over 6 years ago, I have explored a variety of styles within the genre of belly dance to create my own inimitable blend.

Styles of dance learned & Influences:

2008-current: Egyptian & Lebanese styles with Samar Nassar, Ziva & Ahava at Hipline Studio in Berkeley.

2004- 2008: American Tribal Style in the Fat Chance Belly dance format.

2005-2008: Improvisational Tribal Style & Modern Fusion Belly dance in the UNMATA format.

2006-2007: Egyptian and Turkish styles with Vahana

Performances:
I often perform at showcase events in the Sacramento and East Bay area. Venues include Tribal Fest, Rakkasah, Java Cafe Oasis, Casbah Lounge at Annabelle's, Hot Pot Studios, India House,Cafe Bellie and Hipline Studio events. I was a house dancer at Andaloussia Restaurant in Sacramento from Feb 2009-July 2009.

I am also quite active in the Burning Man community and has performed on the playa at Opulent Temple and Hookahdome. In addition I have performed at San Francisco's Decompression/Pre-Compression events as well as various theme camp fundraisers. While I lean toward more traditional dance styles, I can adapt for a more modern twist and include fire props like poi and staff for a very dramatic performance.
