I have been based in Edinburgh since 2009 and have worked with several local artists in different dance projects throughout Scotland.
My dance background is Ballet, Contemporary dance and Arabic dance and I have a passion for movement and for creating and exploring dance in all its forms. This interest in different dance forms has also led me to learn Indian Classical dance and Flamenco. I have also practiced contact-improvisation for many years because it fascinates me the unlimited ways in which bodies can move and interact. I have a special interest in rhythm and Arabic music and how rhythmical patterns can give a specific quality and feeling to movement.
I have created solo work as well as collaborated in other dance projects, such as La Nua, undo dance theatre, Dance Ihayami and The Rootless Company.
