Cara Amirah's dance story
Cara Amirah - Choerographer, Performer and Teacher Since 2002
I was in Marrakech in 1997 and saw a most inspirational traditional dancer, she was truly mesmirising, full of confidence and grace, she danced with subtle power and femininity and I knew in that second I WANTED TO DO WHAT SHE COULD DO!
In my early 20's I suffered from low-self esteem, low positive-body image and anxiety. Belly Dance helped me find a network of caring and friendly women of all ages who were happy with the way their bodies looked and moved. I'd NEVER seen or done anything like this before, at first it was a challenge, with new moves to learn, almost like learning a new language, but with my body, muscles and mind! I was HOOKED!
Belly Dance is truly life changing! Twenty years later Im still dancing and teaching, passing on this beautiful art form to all. Belly Dance has kept me fit, well and happy for decades and my passion is to SHARE this dance with others.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to train and meet with some of the most wonderful dancers over this time. Including: JWAAD School of Arabic Dance (London), Jo Wise, Sylvia Cannetti, Wendy Buonaventura, Khaled Mahmoud, Maria D'Silva, Derby Dance Academy, JOY (Jewel of Yorkshire) and many more!
My Styles Modern to ancient.... Egyptian Traditional Folk (Beladi), Turkish (traditional & Royal Court Dancing), Gitano (Arabic/Spanish), Ghawazee (Egyptian Gypsy), Ancient Egyptian - Pharoahonic, Community Dances of the East (Circle & Line - Debke) & Sacred Symbolic Bellydance and More
Props I work with include: Oriental Veils, Egyptian Cane (Raqs al Assaya), Finger Cymbals (Sagat/Zill) Arabic style, Candle and Shamadan dancing and Silk Fan Veils
A journey to Raqs Sharqi, the true dance of the Orient After the death of my Mother, intensive Yoga and meditation practice I found a soul urge and need for a more simple lifestyle, so in 2017 I decided to sell most of my costumes and props in search of a more authentic Oriental dance style, and after almost two decades of dance, I find the naturalness of Raqs Sharqi to be an 'exilir for the soul' where you can truly dance and fly as if you have wings. this improvised, melodic, emotional and raw form of dance, far removed from showy sequins is a true delight to watch and dance.
I am currently having a break from teaching weekly classes, and am available for Goddess Dance - Sacred Dance - Egyptian Dance and Belly Dance Workshops, events and performances
Thank you for reading my dance story it is a pleasure to share it with you
