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.
So join World Bellydance Alliance next weekend here in our studios for an amazing “Anasma experience” that you won’t forget followed by one of the biggest parties of the weekend featuring Beatbox Guitar. Gonna be bananaaaass!

We are very excited to announce that two legends of Raqs World (Bellydance) are coming to Pera Dance Studio thanks to Les Raissat, Atlanta’s newest cultural raqs team. Morocco of the outstanding Morocco and the Casbah Dance will be doing a stop on her book tour accompanied by Shira of Shira.net. It will be an exciting day filled with history, answering the questions that no one would dare ask before and answered by these skilled and knowledgeable dancers.
Morocco’s history and contributions to the world of Raqs Sharqi are far too long to go over in one blog post. We encourage you to visit her website and see for yourself why she is the absolute mother and Queen of today’s Raqs archives. While there are others in the dance circles that will tell you about how this art form took the world by storm, none can really do it like she can.
Shira of Shira.net has been a one-stop shop for many American Bellydancers who were looking for information to satisfy their sincere curiosity of the Middle East. Her webpage(s) are filled with information on where to find teachers in your local area as well as reviews on products and DVDs. She’s known throughout the raqs world as an approachable and lovely lady. We are honoured she will be with us.
Les Raissat are the hosts for this event. Both Isis and Saniyah have taken a great deal of time to familiarize themselves with the Middle East by travelling and studying with legends. Tito Seif, Aziza of Cairo, Sema Yildiz and others like the famous Nath Keo, Tarik Sultan and Andrus Ramir are no strangers to these women. They know good raqs when they see it and like to feature it. Both have attended numerous Black Orchid Events and are now hosting smaller, one-on-one sessions featuring dancers we’ve depended on and loved for years. This is going to be an historic event with a star-studded show in tow. Don’t miss it! Register by clicking here!
