Shaking the West Coast with a shimmy more powerful than a California earthquake, Julia is one of Sacramento’s most promising and in-demand professional belly dancers. A bright force and true “raq star” among belly dancers, her natural showmanship and dynamic artistry have Julia constantly in the media spotlight, including the Sacramento News & Review. From slinky and snaky to fun and funky, Julia’s captivating classic-Cairo-on-the-cutting-edge style is tasteful, diverse, and dynamic.
A versatile and confident performer with an imagination drawn toward all things mysterious, sensual, and glamorous, Julia isn’t your typical cookie-cutter cabaret cutie. She teaches workshops and private belly dance lessons at the Firehouse 5 Dance Studio in downtown Sacramento and actively campaigns for improved wages and working conditions in the local belly dance community. A former award-winning columnist, Julia also publishes her own belly dance blog, contributes to the online belly dance magazine Gilded Serpent, writes press releases for other belly dancers, and promotes local belly dance events.
