How long have you been dancing?

Only a few months...but I don't think I'll ever stop!

Have you preformed at any public events? If so, where?

I have not belly danced at any public events, but I have been dancing since I was a toddler. I've studied many forms of dance and was a competitive dancer for years.

What is your favorite bellydance style or fusion?

So hard to choose! At the moment I'm learning oriental forms of belly dance (raks sharqi, turkish, persian, armenian, etc), but I'm interested in learning ATS and pop and lock fusion.

Who have you studied with? Yousery Sharif, Mahmoud Reda, Morocco, Tarik Sultan, Ariana al Tiye, Nounhan Sharif, Rayhana, Gamila El Masri, Jehan, Anahid Sofian, . . .

Anahid Sofian, Sira Melikian, and Aviva of Harem Belly Dance...they're all wonderful beautiful dancers and they inspire me every day!

What are you looking to gain from this club?

I'm looking to meet other belly dancers who are also passionate about this art form and I'm looking to learn more about the culture and the belly dance community.


My name is Marissa-Julia and belly dance is my passion! I'm looking to expand my knowledge of this dance form and to meet others who love it just as much as I do :)
