International belly dance artist, Nehir has bid adieu to Istanbul where she was a much sought after performer at top venues and celebrations, and returned to the USA! If you want an authentic oriental experience, book this elegant, exotic, sassy, and captivating dance artist for your next event. Whether you are looking for a performer for a special event, or someone to teach your group to dance at an upcoming get together, Nehir has the belly dance experience and charisma to make the event memorable, and the talk of the town.
If you are looking for a classical Egyptian experience, including slow emotional pieces of music, or if you prefer the lively character of Turkish Oriental dance, Nehir can deliver a truly authentic performance. If you wish to blend a variety of arts together and create something truly unique, you can be comforted to know that she is always willing to explore and push the envelope. Among her favorite fusion works are pieces created for Chinese New Years, using traditional Chinese music, vintage burlesque fan dance using specially edited music containing vintage big band and vintage arabic music. Perhaps her most unique experience was performing at a modern Turkish fashion gallery wearing a custom created vinyl gothic belly dance costume, and dancing to German heavy metal. Anything is possible with the right group of talented visionary individuals.
She comes from a diverse dance background: teaching tap, jazz, and lyrical while only 15 years old, studying ballet, modern, and jazz in university; then, performing and teaching ballroom, swing, salsa, and tango in NYC; finally, being re-born into the art of oriental dance where she went straight to the roots and soul of the dance, training with top instructors in Cairo, Egypt, and then living for several years in Istanbul as one of the top dance artists.
Nehir is now in the USA, and hopes to entrance your audience with the magic of dance that flows in her veins.
