Featuring Sabrina – Dec 16, 2016
Sabrina took her first belly dance class in October 2006 after the Gypsy stage dancers at the Oregon Country Fair piqued her curiosity. Immediately hooked, since then she has dedicated herself to learning as much as possible about Middle Eastern dance, music and culture. She began her studies with Astryd DeMichele and Mary Lingo, before diving in more deeply, learning from Elena Villa, Samisha Shami, and most recently Razia Star. Sabrina has a particular interest in understanding and interpreting the music in the classical style, particularly Classical Egyptian Raqs al-Sharki and American Oriental Style. She enjoys classic Arabic music, especially live performances. Sabrina served on the Middle Eastern Dance Guild of Eugene (MEDGE) board from 2013 to 2016 as performance coordinator. She loves the richness and vastness of Middle Eastern music and dance, and has an insatiable thirst for more knowledge.
