Thank you Jazira
I started belly dancing when I was 19 years old I always wanted to take classes since belly dance is part of my culture. I took classes with Laila Aziz and that is how I learned about Turkish drops. She would not teach me no matter how hard I begged to learn. So I took upon myself to learn it my own way. 3 month later I performed my first Turkish drop on a drum solo at a Roman gypsy Charity Event that my teacher Laila Aziz was the host. That day I was discovered by a Talent Agency that was having dinner at Barba Yannis and decided to pay for my knowledge to get better at belly dance. So I took classes with the best in Town which was Sonya Souk and Jasmin Jahal.
The most important thing that I learned in these belly dancing schools was choreography. After 9 months with them I chose the teacher that I like the most. This teacher was Shahina and she had a lot of soul. Due to personal reasons she could not teach me any longer. So from that time until now I have been learning and choreographing by myself. All my videos are made and choreographed by me. A week ago while I was looking at belly dance videos I came at a realization that there are no videos on how to do Turkish drops, Kathak spins, or anything with good floor work routines. When I first learned there wasn't anybody to teach me either; I thought I can make a difference by breaking down these impossible techniques for dancers to land their very own Turkish drops or Kathak spins.
I love belly dancing and it started out as a hobby now it has evolved into my life story.
