About Keti - Bellydance Performer & Teacher
"Hello, I'm Keti. I began bellydancing at 17 & was performing professionally in Cairo by my early 20's. Studying Islamic Art History for my University degree enriched my love of dance culture. My teaching & performance spans many countries, with seasonal 5 Star performance contracts in Egypt, Malaysia & Singapore.
I teach Bellydance with a somatic, musical approach & enjoy supporting our A-Z dance community worldwide. We've been dancing, creating & sharing our art through the A-Z methodology for over 20 years. A-Z is taught in 40 countries.
I spent years documenting live Egyptian music, integrating this into the courses, as it dramatically improves the dancer's musicality & technique. A-Z Bellydance distills 30 years of research, artistic work with Egyptian artists & hosting cultural events in Egypt. My wonderful mentors, Farida Fahmy & the late Egyptian choreographer Mahmoud Reda have influenced me greatly. Their friendship & support has given my artistic vision deep roots.
In 2022 I am excited to open the Blue Lotus Room - a new spacious studio in Perth, with Sam Abraham."
