After spending four fascinating years in Egypt where she performed successfully, she realised that she had fallen in love with Egypt and it was here where she decided to settle down. She has now lived there for over 12 years. 

Her immense experience of the Egyptian life, and her exposure to Egyptian culture through the language and its everyday life, plus a real knowledge of Arabic music and different dance forms, gives her the essential assets to now teach dance to those that are passionate of this art.

She is an original choreographer who plays on both the melody and the rhythmic elements of the music. She has unquestioned artistic skills that she transmits with happiness and generosity.
