Meet Yasmina Ramzy of Toronto
Yasmina Ramzy is a visionary, pioneer and a highly acclaimed choreographer committed to the presentation of Raqs Sharqi as high art. Since 1981, she has performed over 10,000, times often for royalty and heads of state and throughout the Middle East. Yasmina has had the unique priviledge of performing for several years in Syria with the famous master musicians of Allepo. As well as creating the renowned standardized Arabesque Academy curriculum, she teaches in over 60 cities on five continents. She founded Arabesque Dance Company and Orchestra, Arabesque Academy, the International Bellydance Conference of Canada (IBCC) and the Bellydance Blossom Festival.
Yasmina received her key training from leading masters in Egypt and Syria including Aida Nour of the Reda Troupe and Mohammed Khalil, director of the National Folklore Troupe of Egypt. Her unique and highly creative choreographies have won numerous awards and commissioned by many dance ensembles internationally including the Bellydance Superstars.
Yasmina has produced nine performance and seven instructional DVDs as well as seven CDs. She wrote the "Ask Yasmina" column in the world's largest online Bellydance magazine which is translated into several languages as well as several other publications and continues to write her own blog. As a mentor to many, she is well known for revealing the authentic, organic structure of Mid East dance and its relationship to Arabian music.
