Events are the best!

There’s nothing like dressing up and making an audience smile. Even through the pandemic, dancers found a way to shine. Here is one of my favorite online performances, about resilience and recognizing our common humanity:

Whether in person or online, I could make an impact at your next event.

Shimmy Mob 2023

30th September

Come have brunch at Cafe Green Door between 11:00-noon, and you’ll be treated to a short performance!

Shimmy Mob is organized every year to raise awareness and funds for domestic violence prevention. The September campaign focuses on recognizing signs of emotional abuse.

I’ll be accepting koha for Taranaki Women’s Refuge.

Red Carpet Musicals Show

Join the Performing Arts Collective in celebrating the history of movie musicals! Juniper and the Gems will be presenting several varied pieces: from the Golden Era of Egyptian film, to a Broadway fusion number!

Save the date - 14th October 2023, more details to come.

Sadie Auckland Retreat 2023

I'm performing in the hafla, a spooky season rendition of one of my favorite comic book series - The Wicked and the Divine!

Dancing in Sadie’s Virtual Hafla during lockdown was one of my favorite pieces, now for something completely different ;-)

Dance festivals

These are one of my favorite places to perform, because I also get to learn from others! I have a range of workshops I can teach, in addition to various styles of performance.

This is an improvised “Oriental Metal” piece, from the MEDANZ Festival 2022. It’s a different take on the sub-genre, certainly metal but purely raqs sharqi in its instrumentation and aesthetic. The music is “Nothing Else Matters,” by Metallica, as covered by kanun artist Farah Fersi.

Community shows

I have some availability for free educational performances to benefit the public. My solos are polished and specialized, or you can ask to book me with my group of student dancers to fill the stage with color and motion.

Keen to perform?

Whether or not you have prior experience, many students like to show what they’ve learned to their friends and family, or perhaps even prepare for larger events.

New Plymouth has a few “belly dance” groups, and we sometimes get together for a private “hafla” (party) just for us.

Some of us also like dancing at public events like the Multi Ethnic Extravaganza, the Christmas Parade, or whatever else is on!

Dancing for joy

The best part of any performance is sharing smiles with friends!
