Trained in drama and theatre, I have studied many forms of dance and earned my Equity card in an acting/singing role at the English National Opera. Since I took up Middle-Eastern dance in 2004 I have little passion for anything else and have studied extensively with diverse teachers: have attended regular classes with Josephine Wise, Anne White, and Ozgen, and workshops with Ozgen, Serena and Hossam Ramzy, Melanie Norman, Vashti, Nesrin Topkapi, Rachel Brice, Carolena Nericcio, Princess Farhana, Jillina, Sadie, Razia and many others. I am constantly learning and am excited by how many new things there are to learn in this range of dance styles!
