About Belly Dance with Bashirah Middle Eastern Dance Company

I'm Bobbie and I have been passionate about the beautiful and expressive art form of Middle Eastern Belly Dance since my first class 19 years ago.  Under the tutelage of my first teacher I began performing as a soloist and troupe member, choreographing and teaching. In 2008 I formed Bashirah Middle Eastern Dance Company and then opened Bashirah Middle Eastern Dance Studio, located in Victoria, BC, Canada.

As a perpetual student, I have attended numerous workshops, online classes and coaching sessions.  My biggest influences as teachers and coaches have been Aziza of Portland/Montreal, Mohamed Shahin, Nada El Masriya, Ranya Renée, Sadie Marquardt, Tamalyn Dallal and Vanessa of Cairo.   

“Bashirah” is an Arabic female name meaning “bringer of good tidings or joy."   Along with elegance and charm, I feel this accurately describes what my company strives to achieve when we perform.
 
I am very serious about what I do but I love to do it with a sense of humour and lots of fun!

Along with technical skills of the dance, I teach musicality, rhythms, the cultural nuances behind the musical styles, costuming appropriate for each musical style, and stagecraft.

In these pre-recorded videos I am pleased to offer you some mini lessons of drills and combinations to aid your practice.
