LOCAL BELLYDANCERS NATIONAL BELLYDANCERS
She is an energetic young woman who approaches bellydance with an everyday passion that comes over to her audiences each time out. A fiery Italian who loves their national soccer team, SHADIYAH has been a local blessing to the DC bellydance community and the entire DC metro region, especially the last couple of years. She may be the hardest working bellydancer in the area, it's a wonder if she has time to sleep.
A student of dance since the age of 5, she began with Classical Ballet (the Royal Academy of Dance), and includes Tap, Jazz, Liturgical, German folkloric, Bhangra and Kuchipudi-a dramatic, interpretive and lyrical form of Classical Indian dance. She exclusively took her path down the road of Middle Eastern dance in 2001, and has been a wild ride ever since.
Her trianing focus on Egyptian and lebanese etyles, and she is a proud fusionist of bellydance forms, developing a unique style of her own that promises to captivate any audience. A popular co-headliner or feature at many recitals and haflas in the DC area, Shadiyah has also performed in many big time events nationwide as well, also gaining excellent feedback and reviews of her belly dancing.
Of her many traits, the one facet that truly stands out is her textbook perfections of various tray and candle dances. A breathtaking ability of balance and beauty, she dazzles even further when involving floorwork. While also sharing a love for Persian dances (and performs at many persian weddings and parties), she also performs a lovely isis of Wings number. Shadiyah is a woman that loves to dance, period. She is often compared to Maryland's Nadirah Nasreen, and can pass as sisters. ironically, these two had a chance to perform together at taste of Morocco in Silver Spring for She'endra II's event, that had a standing-room only capacity.
Chances are that seeing the smile light up on her face will be the visible guarantee you'll need to enjoy one of your own when her performance is completed. And, many more smiles are awaiting.
