Nafiseh is a British born Oriental Dancer of Persian descent.
Her mother used to perform what in Iran is called ‘Arabic Dance’, but it was not until seeing a dancer perform Raqs Sharqi (‘Dance from the East’) on a trip to Egypt in 2001 that Nafiseh felt drawn to seek out formal education in this art form.
The power and sensuousness of the dance moved Nafiseh to explore the dance in depth for herself as the truest form of self expression she had ever experienced.
As a lover of Egyptian belly dance, Nafiseh continues to evolve and hone her skills with regular trips to Cairo to study with professional Egyptian dancers as well as studying with a variety of international teachers.
Nafiseh is a highly skilled and experienced performer, who regularly dances at parties, weddings, restaurants, hen nights, corporate and community events mainly in the London and Surrey areas, but also further afield.
