Shakti is the creative life force that fuels the universe. Seek me out for experiences that defy traditional confines of Middle Eastern Dance - providing a theatrical and modern interpretation befitting of an artist from Venice Beach! Indeed, my training in the Raq Sharki Egyptian style of dance provided me with a classical understanding of why I work with each shape and movement to invoke the audience. I enjoy working with Tribal Fusion and American Cabaret influences. I believes the belly dancers body is the conduit for the feminine divine; Shakti.
My typical belly dance set is 15-20 minutes so for parties that need entertainment throughout the spans of an event (3 hours or more)
I typically create "mini shows" for these requests. For example 1 with veil, one with palm flames and 1 with zills or drum solo...
I will choreograph and bring a high level of energy similar to in a cabaret or restaurant. In between sets I dance through the party and do little side shows, I can even do a mini lesson if this is something your guests would enjoy.
Additional Dancers Available - Duet or Trio
For a reasonable talent fee I hire/provide my own drum soloist/live musicians...please let me know thoughts on this as I work with some of the areas most amazing performers. In lieu of live music I can always create an amazing playlist for during the portion of your party I will be entertaining for.
