I am a Brazilian artist and instructor trained in Oriental Fusion and Raqs Sharqi. I moved to Denmark two years ago and I teach both styles in Copenhagen and Roskilde. My Oriental Fusion style has a flow and serpentine repertoire with a strong background in Raqs Sharqi which I fused with waving and added my Brazilian flavor to polish hip work technique. In my classes, I encourage my students to use their creativity to develop their style and express their uniqueness while seeking to improve their technique.
What is Oriental Fusion?
Oriental Fusion is a M.E.N.A.H.T. (Middle East, North Africa, Hellas and Turkey) and North India inspired fusion dance, where elements from other styles can be incorporated into its repertoire such as contemporary dance, ballet, jazz, hip hop, waving, popping, etc. It is about "dancing outside the box" and moving in ways that align with our bodies and souls. And more than that, it's about honoring the cultures and communities from which we find inspiration for this form of - transnacional - art.
This form of art is sacred and transformative, it is about connecting and empowering women from different parts of the world, practicing self-love and supporting each other. Through this dance, you can experience your womanhood in many different ways. You can express your strength, sensuality, and power, the sacred and profane that surrounds the female archetypes. You are free to be and express yourself in a pure, beautiful and genuine way!
My mission as an artist and instructor is to share this beautiful and powerful dance with others. Would you like to join me in this journey?
