About

Berna is a respected instructor, choreographer and performer of Middle Eastern Dance who is based in Fairfax, VA, a transplant from Pittsburgh, PA. A lifetime student of art and performance, she has enjoyed many forms of dance since the age of four. The magic of Middle Eastern dance caught her eye nearly a decade ago and Berna's been shimming ever since. Blending cultural and stylistic elements with traditional movements, she is honored and ecstatic to share her art with the community. Utilizing choreographies or improvisation, Berna performs dances in multiple styles (Turkish, Romani, Arabic, Persian and Tribal) from educational re-creations of traditional folk dances, to modern fusion-style blendings of the oriental style.

Adept at using props as well; she has amazed audiences with performances using canes, baskets, skirts, veils, and candles. Never without her finger cymbals, Berna enjoys the technique and craft with making music while dancing away!

Berna has danced with the award winning troupe, Khafif Music and Dance, and has taught and performed in numerous public and private events throughout the US and Canada.

My brother and I had a 70th birthday party for our mother. We were having a very difficult time deciding on the entertainment for about 70 people who were attending. After speaking with Berna on the phone I knew this was going to be a big hit. Everyone had so much fun with her. She is highly talented, extremely personable, and above all very professional. We will definitely hire her again and encourage others needing to find entertainment to do so also. Thank you, Berna, for giving my mom and all of us, wonderful memories to treasure. Michele Heasley
