Meiver - a fiery entertainer hailing from Dominican Republic, via Boston, Massachusetts - is now available for bookings in Cleveland. With natural grace (her middle name) combined with a keen feel for Arabic rhythms, over the last 10 years she has been one of Boston's favorite and most sought after performers, working within the Middle Eastern community there, specializing in weddings, birthdays, and family gatherings.
Under the tutelage of some of the best-known names in this art form, Meiver has studied stage, folkloric, and social dances of the Near East, since 1996. A curious student, to date she has taken Dance classes in 7 countries around the world. In addition to extensive work as a solo artist, Meiver has also performed Sharqi/Baladi, Arabic-Techno fusion, Bhangra and Turkish/Eastern European Folk Dances with such groups as Belly Dance Superstars (Taiwan Tour), Bellydance Overdrive, and Collage Dance Ensemble (Boston-based Eastern European folk dance company).
Deeply committed to using art for social justice, Meiver is interested in exploring the role that the popularity of Arab arts can play in bridging cultural gaps between East and West. As part of her Master's Program in Gender and Cultural Studies at Simmons College in Boston, Meiver wrote her Master's thesis on the transnational, gender, and racial politics of dance, with particular focus on the role of American dancers in the global Belly Dance scene. Currently she is completing a doctoral thesis on Arab American dance cultures.
She has been performing in the heart of Boston's Arab community for all of her dance career, and is frequently invited to lecture about the history and global context of the dance, as well as to teach and perform dance by community groups in Boston. She has been teaching Dance since 2002, currently teaching dance theory and technique at a local university. Her teaching approach emphasizes the development of a dancer's technical skills and artistry, awareness of the dance's history, culture and context, musical literacy and performance readiness.

Meiver was WONDERFUL! If you are looking for an amazing experience at your event, look no further! She performed at a birthday/retirement party of around 150 people of all ages and everyone was blown away. Not only is she a beautiful dancer she is also a great teacher and engaged our audience with a step by step how to of ethnic dances! She traveled from Chicago to Sioux Falls, SD for us and we could not be more grateful. Thank you Meiver! We will be talking about this party for years to come!
