I sarted belly dance with Devorah Korek and Cristina Manrique, and after with Munique Neith taking part in her Professional Ballet. Now i'm studying with Rachida Aharrat and Salima, collaborating on puntual events in their formations.

Frequently, I use to travel in research and training with different teachers. My particular dance style, very personal with a touch of modern fusion, takes different sources, from the fundamentals of classical oriental to the most important figures in Modern Egyptian, and also the most lyrical and emotional dancetheater style.

In a few years I have developed two successful dance groups, working like co-choreographer and producer: Artsuhat Oriental Fiction and Al-Ra'andis, with both along with other guest artists, we produced and released Oriental Rouge Show in Barcelona on July 2013.

I have won multiple awards, contests and recognitions with my two companies and as a soloist. And in the past year I was invited to dance by my great master Mercedes Nieto in Cairo Festival of Budapest, and also by Alba Hayal Mataró at Festival International, in Libanese Night Winter shows in St. Moritz Switzerland, at the gala Shahdanza with Shaddana in Valencia, and at Star Lab Barcelona organized by Nefer Shu.

I live in Barcelona, working as a teacher, performer and choreographer to find the artistic and communicational path of this ancient dance.
