“Dance is the hidden language of the soul” - Martha Graham
At the heart of belly dance
A’isha is a professional Oriental-style belly dance performer and instructor in the Kansas City metro area. Coming from Romania, a country where East meets the West, A’isha proudly embraces her Romanian heritage. Her love for Middle-Eastern music and dance (also known as Raqs Sharki, by its Arabic name) goes beyond learning and performing; it fuels her desire to preserve and promote this art form, and to educate the public about belly dancing. Her favorite styles are Egyptian and American Cabaret, but she also loves to perform Turkish, Greek and Balkan folkloric dances. A’isha is dancing in and producing the only monthly bellydance show in Kansas City – “1001 Arabian Nights,” at the Uptown Arts Bar, since 2012. She has also produced “Tales of the Desert” for the 2014 KC Fringe Festival, co-produced the 2015 “Heart of America Bellydance Festival and Competition” and co-produced the highly successful “Bellydance on the Fringe – A Cinderella Story” in 2016.
For her, dance is the gift of happiness and liveliness that she loves to share with her audience!
