My name is Saffera ( an Egyptian name for ambassador), I’ve lived in Lakeland for 18 years now, I started to learn the ancient art of Belly Dance back in 2005, I was invited to performed professionally for the first time in 2008. I’m an Egyptian style Belly Dance performer, I incorporate props while dancing like silk veils, isis wings, candelabra, silk fans, candles, cane and sword. I’m a former Belly dancer from The Hookah Palace, several local events and some other venues in Tampa and Orlando as well, along with private events and theater productions. I started to teach in 2015 and I’ve been teaching since then; the ancient art of Belly Dance is a beautiful and fun way to exercise, while learning to use abdominal muscles, along with balance and strength, many of the moves involve isolations which improves flexibility of the torso.
“I’m from Mexico and I’ve been dancing for 10 years and teaching for over a year now. I often perform at the Hookah Palace in downtown Lakeland and participate in as many community events as I can! I specialize in traditional Egyptian/Arabic style Belly Dance! I’m very excited to be a part of the UDC Team!!”
