About Keti - Bellydance Performer & Teacher
Keti Sharif teaches Bellydance with a somatic, musical approach. Her A-Z Bellydance methodology has been supporting students and teachers worldwide for over 20 years. Keti's courses feature live Egyptian music & percussion to improve the dancer's musicality and expand movement repertoire.
Somatics (mindful/internally focused movement) connects dancers more deeply to their movement and enhances both choreography and improvisation. A healing art, somatics promotes a deep sense of body awareness and enhances presence and wellbeing.
Influenced by mentors, Farida Fahmy & the late Egytian choreographer Mahmoud Reda, A-Z distills 30 years of research, artistic and work with Egyptian musicians & dancers & cultural events in Egypt. A-Z Bellydance is currently taught in 40 countries, and Keti's new 2021 course features RHYTHMIC ESSENCE partner, Percussionist Sam Nascimento on darbuka.
