Divine Belly dance in Los Angeles ...

Nasila began dancing and performing at the
age of 5.  She was introduced to Middle
Eastern dance, or "belly dance," in 2002 and it has become a primary passion in her life.   

Co-Founder of the Los Angeles belly dance resource
LARaqs.com, Nasila hopes to share the
endless benefits of raqs sharqi and impart some of the pure joy that emerges through the
interpretation of rich Middle Eastern music.  Her inspirations include many talented Los
Angeles based teachers such as Princess Farhana, Fahtiem, Aleya, Jenna, Jillina, Gamal
Gomaa, and her primary teacher, Zahra Zuhair, as well as international super stars such as
Dina, Diana Tarkhan and Raqia Hassan.  She takes delight in every aspect of this amazing
and ancient dance and all its many forms.   

Nasila brings a passion for Arabic music and heartfelt love of dance to her performances.
