See Me on YouTube!

One of the things a performer has to get used to is seeing photos and video of themselves. It gets easier with time, and sometimes I find it fun to look back on previous shows and see how far I've come! I'm also sharing videos of my student troupe, Raks Habibi.


Performances from 2016:

March 2016: From the Madd Hatters Hafla, a fundraiser for Gypsy Cats NFP. Everyone had to wear a hat of some sort.:


2015 was been a lot of fun! Here are some performances you may enjoy:

  • From an annual favorite event, Ho Ho Ho Habibi: Raks Habibi performing their own choreography to Meet Me Under the Mistletoe by Randy Travis
  • Here I am, doing my signature Big Band Bellydance style to Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody by Judy Garland. This performance was at the Northern Lights Bellydance Festival in Rockford, IL. October, 2015.
  • Here is my solo performance (improvizational) to No Diggety (the fantastic Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox version, featuring Ariana Savalas) from Shakila Bellydance's Annual Showcase, September 2015.
  • I did another improvisational performance of Baladi Accordian at "An Evening of Belly Dance" in Glendale, WI, on June 13, 2015.
  • My amazing student troupe, Raks Habibis, performing Dare (by Shakira), also at "An Evening of Belly Dance" on June 13, 2015
