Farah began taking belly dance classes in 2017 to boost her self-esteem and fell in love with the dance form immediately. Her training includes Middle-Eastern Classical, Oriental, and Folkloric dances from Arabic and Persian traditions. She has studied with Kaeshi Chai, Mariyah, Ranya Renee, Irina Akulenko, and Nourhan Sharif, among many others. Through dance performance and education, she strives to show women of all ages and identities, and especially school-age and chronically ill girls, that they can feel confident, strong, beautiful, without and within, and forge bonds of sisterhood through art and dance.
Her signature style includes combining delicate, soft movements from the Golden Era of Egyptian Dance with strange, experimental movements. She enjoys creating both playful, sweet atmospheres and dramatic, illustrative narratives built upon the foundation of classical combinations.
Farah’s academic background is in Video Production and Comparative Literature. She attended Emerson College in Boston, MA, The Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, and currently attends Hunter College in Manhattan. When not dancing, she enjoys writing strange and decadent fiction, playing blues guitar, reading, organizing literary events, and visiting her home state of Rhode Island.
