About the teacher:
Natalie is a Puerto Rican professional Raqs Sharqi dancer, teacher, choreographer, and producer. She is based between Puerto Rico and New York City, she specializes in Egyptian Oriental dance. She has regularly visited Egypt since 2015 in order to experience and understand the culture and modern life of Egyptian people in a deeper way. As a result, she started learning Egyptian Colloquial Arabic in order to interpret the music and dance in a more profound manner. One of the biggest accomplishments in Natalie’s dance career was when she was cast in the famous show Abla Fahita; an Egyptian production where she performed while speaking in Arabic at the Apollo Theater in New York City. Raks Al Zahra is the result of immense inspiration from Natalie’s travels through the Middle East and is also powered by the meaningful connection that is present between her, her dancers and the audience. Natalie’s motto is as follows: “I write my life with every dance movement. As I perform, I dance my past, present, and future to come.” Instagram @natalie_hayat
