Michelle

Seattle Bellydancer

Charismatic – captivating – playful – quirky – enchanting!

Enjoyed for her enigmatic mix of approachability and classic glamour, Michelle has been entrancing audiences since 2010. At first drawn to belly dance by the exquisite costumes and mesmerizing performances, Michelle became truly hooked on the art form after taking her very first class, and continues her training with many of the legendary performers of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. 

Michelle brings her Egyptian-inspired, American Cabaret-influenced eclectic style to the stage, presenting classic and modern raks sharqi along with audience-pleasing folkloric favorites such as saidi, beledi, shaabi, khaleegi and more. Performances include authentic music selected specifically for your event, beautiful couture costuming, and exciting props. Contact Michelle at…secure your event date.

She performs both as a soloist and as a member of the Karavans Dance Troupe. Michelle is not only a dancer, teacher, and choreographer, she also designs and creates her own line of belly dance costumes under her label Azya’ Michelle. Michelle feels that her extensive background and training in visual and fiber arts gives her a unique perspective through which she can share the joy and passion found in music to the stage. Audiences everywhere agree!
