Karlos Khalil’s performance at Black Orchid’s Soul of Fusion 2012 show was impressive enough that Les Raissat had to send him an invite to come back as a special guest. He is artistic director of the conceptual performance group La Hara, teacher, featured restaurant performer and competition winner (Yaa Halla Yall Festival 2012 & 2nd runner up -2013 Belly Dancer of the Universe competitions). He has performed all over the country as an invited performer and competitor. Karlos’ style covers traditional to tribal fusion and no matter the genre, Karlos brings mystery, power and drama to the stage. https://www.facebook.com/karlos.khalil.3#!/karloskhaliltribal?fref=ts Video: Karlos: http://www.youtube.com/user/karloskhalilbelly?feature=watch

About Anasma: Anasma is a Dancer, Teacher, Choreographer, Artistic Director and Singer.
Half Tunisian and half Vietnamese, living between Paris and New York City, Anasma was naturally drawn to mixing art forms to express who she is through performance and teaching. Thus her unique Theatrical World Dance fusions (Theatrical Dance, Hip Hop Bellydance Liquid Fusion Bellydance, Wushu Liquid Bellydance, Salsa Bellydance…) are a mix between the ethnic and the urban components of her personal background and her present life.
Not only is Anasma a beautiful person, she’s amazing and talented beyond belief. To see her dance is something out of this world. She has been seen along side many great artists and on a personal level is quite sweet and kind. She is truly beautiful.
