Join in the wonderful world of Raks Sharqi (Belly Dance) by Yasmina La Roche!!
Yasmina originally from Los Angeles, Ca. where she worked as a professional Egyptian Dance Artist, starting back in the mid-70. Performing in nightclubs, banquets, parties, theaters, weddings and concerts she has danced in cabaret and stage shows from Los Angeles to Florida, Northern California to Reno, Nevada.
In 1990 was honored with becoming certified in Egyptian Cabaret and Theatrical Dancing from Sultana Ebrahim Dance Academy.
Yasmina began teaching in Reno back in 1994 and presenting teaching dance classes from group to private lessons. She is the choreographer and artistic dance director to Troupe de La Roche and Troupe Jasmine. Yasmina brings a life time of experience to her classes not only teaching the true essence of the dance, but passes on the knowledge that was given to her from her teacher.
Yasmina has continued her study with many wonderful dance artists/instructors from Mesmera, Suzanna Del Vecchio, Morocco, Jacques Al Asmar, Oreet and Tito of Egypt and many others. She enjoys learning new and different styles and techniques always embellishing her own style of dance.
From the beginning of her dance career, she has always looked for the beauty in the dance, always showing dignity and pride with love for everyone.
Belly dance gives us a sense of achievement, skill and control over our bodies; learning to move gracefully, gain positive self-image. This is a beautiful form of art that honors life.
