She created and directed in 2013 the “Layali Zaman” show, meaning “A MiddleEastern Night’s Dream” with a classical oriental symphonic orchestra made of eight talented and virtuosi musicians all renowned and acknowledge in the music community.

Each year, dozens of students join her oriental dance school in Toulouse and Fronton. Beyond a dance technique, they discover with enthusiasm the culture of the Middle East and rhythms and music necessary for the formation of an oriental dancer. With shows “Ya salam!” And “Eini ya eini”, she invites her students to discover the stage accompanied by professional musicians. The oriental dance and the music are thus connected !!!
