About Me

Photo by Tunde Dora



Tokyo, Japan


Since 2001 I started to learn Egyptian style of oriental dance, Mahmoud Reda Style Folklore at Karima Dance Company in Tokyo. I also learned jazz dance from a famous teacher in jazz and classical ballet whose name is Mako Kaori. 

Since 2002, I traveled to Egypt, the United States of America, Argentina, Europe and other Asian countries to learn and perform.

My main teachers are Karima, ZIZI (Japan), Yousry Sharif, Ahmed Refaat, Mercedes Nieto, Aida Nour etc.

In particular I love the golden era dancers' style of dance and Egyptian folklore dance.

I started to teach from 2008 and open my own school from the next year in Tokyo and Tochigi. 

and now do workshops in Japan and organize events with the master teachers, Mercedes Nieto, Ahmed Refaat, Kareem GaD, Salima from Spain etc.

Fakha Helwa is my dance troupe and they won some competitions in Japan and also perform in the international show.  And the folklore troupe performances with men and women in the shows are created by Japanese female dancers with my own choreography and stage design.
