The Gilded Serpent presents...


of Germany

I was already successful as a belly dancer in Germany when I had an adventurous idea in the end of the 90s: I wanted to work as an Oriental dancer in an Arabic country. After a short inspiring trip to Dubai, I headed for Cairo. With it's over than 6 million inhabitants, it is now the biggest city in North Africa. This city has always been the center of origin and development of the Middle Eastern art form, we know as belly dancing. Raqs Sharqi, the Arabic expression for dance of the east, kept me busy in Egypt for 9 years. That was the time I needed to explore and understand everything essential about this symbol of Oriental sensuality. During this time I was successful creating my own Oriental dance shows in Egypt. Meaning I was finally able to make a living out of performing only. My personal experiences and observations built the basis for my teaching.
