The Gilded Serpent presents...


Shazadi is young and energized. Despite her youth, she has a world of experience. She knows how to please the crowd and can dance for any audience. From traditional Arabic to Arabic pop, from classic rock to gothic fusion she will take you on a magical carpet ride to a faraway land.

Not only has Shazadi learned belly dance from her mother, Zakia Hamwee, she has studied with some of Miami's most respected dancers/instructors, Scheherazade and Jihan Jamal. She has been educated in traditional Lebanese style by Tasha Banat and non-traditional belly dance by Saz'rhah of El Paso. Shazadi has been performing belly dance since the age of 6 and is one of El Paso's most popular performers. Shazadi is the co-choreographer of the Flames of Araby, & a member of the award winning troupe The Sheik and Flames of Araby. She is the founder and artistic director of a belly dance club at Loretto Academy, Banat Al Jana, a troupe of heavenly girls.
