Growing up with Middle Eastern influence gave Nawal a much different experience than her peers. Her father’s culture brought her to study Bellydance with the Salimpour School in Berkeley, California, the highest levels of training in the Bellydance world. She has owned and operated a Studio dedicated to Yoga and Bellydance in Atlantic Canada since 2009 and is respected as an ambassador of Egyptian arts through her work in Islamic mystic arts of Tannoura (whirling) and Zarr. In recent years Nawal has created a niche of Dark Performance art and Doom Bellydance as sword dancer and visual arts designer for meditative mantra doom Band Zaum.
A lifelong builder and Artist, her creations of body chains, and most recently life-like rams horns are now all available and showcased in her web store.
Nawal Is currently working to finish her 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training.
