Providing professional, award-winning bellydance entertainment and instruction throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Mirabai is an engaging, soulful entertainer and a gifted belly dance artist who energizes her audiences! Her devotion to the dance, love of her audiences, and exquisite artistry make her a beloved dancer, entertainer, choreographer and teacher.
She began her studies at the age of 3 with tap and ballet. In her teens, she discovered belly dance, and fell in love with its ability to fully embody, transmit and to elevate the feminine divine. Belly dance was just the gateway, though, which opened the door to broader studies of other contemporary and folkloric dances of the Arabic world. Since her first explorations, Mirabai has studied under many nationally and internationally acclaimed dance artists. She is honored to have studied with Mahmoud Reda, Randa Kamel, Mohamed Shahin, Amel Tafsout, Yousry Sharif, Amir Thaleb, Bozenka, Aziza, Leila of Cairo and Karim Nagi, to name just a few. Most recently she has continued her studies of Khaliji with Khadijah, and her studies of dances of Iraq with Assala Ibrahim and Sara Al-Hadithi. Additionally, she has gained invaluable coaching from her collaborations with local dancers in Seattle and Las Vegas.
Mirabai is a multi-award-winning artist, who now teaches all levels of dance throughout the Puget Sound. She is available for private and special occasion group lessons. She is also available for workshops and special event performances. You can find her at festivals, competitions, and dance seminars throughout the country and in particular in the Northwest.
She is always updating her dance knowledge, seeking out expert instruction from industry leaders. And she is devoted to continued cultural studies, enhancing her abilities to dance, teach and choreograph.
Styles Mirabai specializes in are American Cabaret bellydance, Egyptian raqs sharqi, and dances of the Arabian Gulf and Iraq.
