Classical Interpretation of an Ancient Art Form


Developed in the Middle East thousands of years ago, belly dance, or in the Arabic language (“raqs sharqi”), is performed by Mariah of Ohio, USA with tremendous joy, passion, and respect for the ancient art form. Her interpretation of one of the oldest social dances in world history is pure entertainment for the entire family. Any festive occasion such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary, corporate event, or community festival brings families and friends together to simply celebrate life. Have a belly dancer at your next event and you will be sure to make it a party everybody will enjoy and remember for years to follow.
