Hi, I’m Shining


I am best known for my research and reconstruction of early Raqs Sharqi (Belly Dance) and the candelabra - balancing dance named “Raqs al-Shamadan”.

My instruction and performances have a strong emphasis on the historical and cultural aspects of Raqs Sharqi as elements which contribute an important depth and creativity to this special art form.
