Jalilah’s extensive dance background contributed to her ability to master the many different forms of Middle Eastern Dance. Starting at the age of four, Jalilah studied ballet, jazz, and tap. At an early age, she joined the Lorraine Dancers performing jazz and tap throughout Orange County.
Traveling with this dance company to Hawaii, Jalilah had the opportunity to study both Tahitian and Hawaiian dance including poi ball, gourd, cane and other traditional island dances. Jalilah can be seen belly dancing at Ventura’s popular Greek at the Harbor restaurant and various other festivals and events throughout Southern California.
