Sister with an Egyptian Soul..."
- is her audience rapport; the ability to draw the entire audience
into the "Dance" with her so that they may feel the music and
dance "with" her..."
Welcome! I am so happy you have chosen to take a few moments to visit the home of Zaina Hart.
Through the many years of travel on this road of dance I have made ever lasting friendships valued beyond imagination and have countless experiences that will be cherished always. It is this "Magic" I would like to share with you, through stories and articles, performances, instructional videos, my own unique dance style, shared links, a calendar of events and much more.
Our dance, whatever you may call it, Raks Sharqi, La Danse Orientale, Middle Eastern Dance or more well known here in the United States, "Belly Dance" has in fact and as I anticipated with the first performance I saw over 35 years ago, proven to be a my Life's Partner. As I share with you a glimpse of this incredible dance art, we will find together dancers of all ages, nationalities, body types, physical and emotional strengths, religious backgrounds, both men and women - all sharing their experience and talent, with you, me - "us".
Our Dance Art is one in which the performer is in complete control - s/he picks the venue, costume design, music, movement, and most importantly "mood" of the dance. This power of choice gives us incredible strength, confidence, and great joy, which we share with our audience - each other.
You see, reality is, I am not ultra thin, of Middle Eastern descent, and am definitely no longer under thirty, but dance, light a fire, invite the audience to dance with me, yes, I can do that...!
"When I dance, you dance with me."
