Miriam, Oriental Dancer, Egyptian Bellydance
(213) 305-9632 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Miriam brings a dynamic combination of passion and grace to Oriental Dance.
Although she specializes in neo-classic Modern Egyptian belly dance, she is also proficient in Fusion as well as the folkloric styles of many countries, including Lebanese Debke, Saudi Arabian and Gulf States Khaligi, Tunisian, and Upper Egyptian Saidi, and the stately raks shamadan, a traditional Egyptian wedding dance involving balancing a large candelabrum on the dancer's head. Interested in dance at an early age, she performed Ballet Folklorico (Mexican folk dances) as a child, but it wasn't until later in life, as a young adult, that she discovered her first love: Oriental Dance.
Miriam trained with some of the finest teachers on the West Coast, and has also studied in Egypt and done dance research in Syria. Miriam has performed at the top Arabic clubs on the West Coast and in Las Vegas, Nevada.
She is currently a featured soloist at both Moun Of Tunis Restaurant in Hollywood and Babouch in San Pedro, California. Her theatrical performances include many stage productions, including engagements at the El Rey Theater, Henry Fonda Music Box Theater, Highways Performance Space and The Fountain Theatre.
She has performed with many groups, including the Adam Basma Dance Company, Mohammed Khordadian's troupe, as well as with Flowers of the Desert. Currently, Miriam is with the acclaimed Eshta Dance Company.
CLASSES: Available for private instruction by appointment.
Some of you may be aware that I have been doing lots of Art and Art related projects over the past few years. In fact, I now sign my name Penny Lee StewArt!
I recently painted 25 sketch cards of belly dancers, 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. They are very collectible and make great gifts.
Please visit my Daily Paint Works Gallery if you are interested in purchasing. Thanks.
