Maysun can perform using props, in particular veil, sword and fan, which she teaches at workshops.
  • Mahara has been involved in belly dance since her teen years.  Although she started her dance career with more traditional forms of dance (ballet/jazz/tap), belly dance has been her passion.  Mahara has performed professionally both as a solo artist and as a member of several small ensembles and troupes.  She currently dances with troupes Yemanja and Satori, and has been stage manager for local belly dance troupe “Loud Zoo”.  Mahara writes original choreographies and is preparing to launch her own Cabaret belly dance troupe.  She is currently preparing to enter (with fellow members of troupe Satori) into the world of belly dance competition.

Trained in all types of dance from ballet to hiphop, some ariel silks and acro. Belly dance has a long cultural standing and has spread from Egypt and India all the way to the United States. It has been outlawed in its country of origin yet popularized here in the U.S. I am honoured to practice it and keep the classical techniques alive and mood flourishing. Plus it keeps me in shape!
