     Inspired By Hollywood: Anastasia Brings Colorful, Enchanting “Modern Fusion” Belly Dancing To Your Venue. From the moment Anastasia saw belly dancing on TV as a child, she knew she wanted to learn the art of exotic dance. The film was “From Russia With Love,” featuring Sean Connery as James Bond, and the dancing of Lisa Guirat. “That was the first time I saw it,’ Anastasia explains. “I was fascinated by how one can move their bodies in ways I`ve never seen before. I was hooked immediately. I start practicing alone in front of my mirror hours and hours, non-stop — and my first performance was for my parents’ 20th wedding anniversary. “The feedback on my performance that wasn’t remotely any good, was mostly positive and so I went forward with my passion.”

Fan Veils

     At the time, Anastasia was studying pop dances at school in the Uzbekistan of her youth. After finding out about belly dancing and related styles, she eagerly sought out more information about her newly discovered passion, but wasn’t widely available in the conservative Muslim country. By doing research on the Internet (which was new at that time and only a luxury), she found more examples and inspiration.
     As she developed her own style and gained expertise, Anastasia was encouraged by the growing popularity of exotic eastern dance all around the world including New York where she now resided. She explains: “In beginning of the 2000s belly dance gained worldwide popularity and world-renowned dancers started touring all over the world offering their workshops. You no longer had to go to Egypt to learn from the masters.”


     As a result, Anastasia had the opportunity to study under some of the all-time greats in the field. “I`ve studied with such gurus of belly dance as Tito Seif, Dina Talaat, Randa Kamel, Yusri Sharif, Elena Ramazanova, Tatyana Nour, Mohamed Shahin,” she explains. “This is when I expended my techniques and manner of dance. As of today I keep on experimenting and make all of my ideas come true. With over 15 years of dancing and 10 years of performing professionally I know how to bring joy and fun to my audience along with expending their views on one of the most ancient arts – belly dance.”
     Anastasia’s crowd-pleasing act – available at your choice of venue in New York and New Jersey -incorporates her expertise in an enchanting blend of exotic dance styles that she describes as “modern fusion.”
The performances feature her breathtakingly beautiful costumes and props, most of them created from scratch by Anastasia herself. In addition, she edits all her music, and will gladly incorporate a client’s favorite song into the show as desired.
