Why did you start belly dancing? Belly Dance Championship 2019

As a teenager, the whole idea of “1001 nights” was really appealing to me. During a holiday to Egypt I saw a a belly dancer performing and really felt this was something for me! When I read in the newspaper that Majidah was going to teach in my region, I didn’t hesitate for a second and signed up for a trial lesson. My whole life I have been busy with dance: jazz ballet, street dance, ballroom dancing and salsa; but I found my real passion in belly dance.

How would you describe your style?

Waarom buikdans?

Als tiener trok de hele sfeer van 1001 nacht mij heel erg. Tijdens een vakantie naar Belly Dance Championship 2019Egypte zag ik een optreden van een buikdanseres en vond dit helemaal bij mij passen. Toen ik in het regionale dagblad las dat Majidah les ging geven in de regio twijfelde ik geen seconde en gaf mij op voor de proefles. Ik ben mijn hele leven al bezig met dans, jazzballet, streetdance, stijldansen en salsa dansen.  Maar mijn echte passie had ik gevonden in buikdans.

Hoe beschrijf je jouw style?
