Nuriya is a trained Middle Eastern/American Cabaret bellydancer.  She has studied Egyptian, Khaliji, Turkish, Latin, and Polynesian influences of belly dance. Her style can be characterized as elegant, graceful, full of emotion, and exciting.


Nuriya has a deep love of dance and enjoys studying various forms of dance, in addition to belly dance.  Her performances are sensational, and she is known for getting parties started and inviting guests to dance with her.


Nuriya offers a very professional experience from her custom-designed costumes to her devotion and respect of the dance, to her passionate love of Middle Eastern music.  She is regularly hired to perform at popular venues that feature belly dancing.


Nuriya has been hired for weddings, birthdays, cultural events, holiday parties, graduations, festivals, church events, corporate events, bellygrams, haflas, and special events.

Nuriya teaches private lessons in Sacramento and the Bay area. When she is not performing or teaching, she competes at bellydance competitions (Nuriya recently won Queen of Raks Sharqi at the Ahlan Cairo Nights competition – the only US competition completely judged by Egyptian dancers and master instructors/choreographers) and writes for national belly dance magazines and websites such as Cheeky Girl Productions and the Gilded Serpent.
