how I got started
Elektra has always been a natural dancer and started dancing from a young age. She was first introduced to belly dancing when she went to Sheikh's Palace restaurant and was totally mesmerised by the belly dancer - a truly life changing moment. She fell in love with the art instantly and started taking lessons.
She loves belly dancing as it gives her complete freedom, peace and joy. It allows her to express her femininity in a powerful and liberating way. Dancing moves her emotionally, spiritually, physically in a way that cannot be explained but only felt. It is an expression that stretches, encapsulates and empowers a woman's body, mind and spirit.
Elektra has performed at the events of a number of
corporate clients, including:
