am a belly dancer for nearly 30 years and teaching for 27 years
In 1999 I opened my studio and started Tribal Style Belly Dance.
I am the founder and director of Neas Tribal, one of the first tribes
in Germany and the tribe which exist the longest, now for 20 years.
Neas Tribal really loves to perform at renaissance festivals and
also at big oriental events.
Including all my love and passion I created my very own style -
In 2006 I created my own Tribal Fusion troupe Fusionea. Their Fusion
Style based on Neas Fundamentals, the own style from Neas Tribal
which includes old school ATS® and new influences as well. Since
2010 I am teaching this format as an intensive project around Europe
to give more dancers a solid basis to start with Tribal Style Belly
I am one of the first Instructors in Tribal Style Dance in Germany,
travelling all over Europe and around the world.
I hosted several well known Instructors and Dancers from Tribal
Style Belly Dance Art.
At Tribal Quest in Portland and Tribalfest in Sebastopol I performed
and taught as the first German Tribal Dancer with some of my troupe
I am certified teacher from FCBD® and Sister Studio. I also
have the Certifikation in SGI format from Kajira Djoumahna from
Black Sheep Belly Dance.
In 2015 I formed a new troupe, called Sharineas tribes, they all
are based in my own dance format Neas Fundamentals. Also in 2015
I build UNIQUA together with Fara la Sombra from Daphnees Clan and
Nicole from Shir o Shakar.
In 2017 I created the format New Generation, which includes a lot
of creative working on known and unknown moves, new combinations
and several new formation ideas, all based on ATS®. So all in
all I believe that I will never stop dancing because I love to share
my dance with others and the fun resulting of it.
