My professional career started in Grozny, Russia. After I devoted my self to acrobatics, I graduated at age 17 and toured all around the world with the famous “Vainah” dance troupe. Our speciality then was the northern Caucasus dances.

 

I visited Cairo-Egypt and discovered belly dancing. I fell in love with it right away, and I stayed more than one year learning from authentic and famous Egyptian choreographers.

 

I discovered that this dance was wrongly labelled as erotic. I, for myself think that it’s a dance that comes from the deep soul. Once I learned the basics of this dance I adapted it to my personality and added ballet and acrobatic movements.

 


I got hired by movie directors in Russia and Israel, who noticed my style, plasticity, skills and ability to give an impulse to a new technique. Then follow a long series of shows and television appearances given in more than forty countries  (among them Egypt, Israel, Germany, Turkey, U.S.A., Canada, Angola and Brazil).

 

I live in Canada since 1999, I teach dancing and I share my passion for Ballet and Baladi with my troupe «Cleopatra».
