Aleisha - Bellydancer

This established belly dancer is based in Manchester and performs professional belly dancing all over the Northwest of England.

Belly dancing is fantastic entertainment for all occasions and events and is exotic, fun and mesmerizing, let her add that extra sparkle to your event.

She has travelled to Turkey, Dubai, Bahrain and Egypt and has trained in Egypt with Cairo’s teacher “Raqia Hassan” and performed in London with Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy and dancer Serina Ramzy.

The ballet style combined with traditional techniques of isolating the hips, chest, shoulders, head, and hands as well as serpentine and undulating movements became an exciting and challenging art form for her to learn.

Costumes of beautiful bright coloured beads with soft chiffons and silks are glamorous and feminine. The music is authentic and hypnotic, the dance is liberating and enchanting. 

Many belly dancers prefer the choreographed approach, repeating much-rehearsed steps to familiar recorded music whereas this dancer can apply her belly dance techniques to live music.  For me belly dance is a free spirited dance of the soul - each time she perform this wonderful dance she feels a great sense of empowerment.

The Show

She will provide 1st class entertainment for your special occasion - performances are usually 10 - 30 minutes in length, these include full shows and belly grams. Several different props or dance elements may be incorporated depending on the occasion. If there is a guest of honour (such as in birthday, graduation parties, etc) he / she will be at the centre of attention and will feel very special. This is not only a great way to get the party started but it may also be the highlight of the event as a quick surprise or a feature at a cultural or corporate event.

Her performances are always family oriented, suitable for all ages – children are always welcome!
