"Born of Greek heritage, belly dancing was as natural to Kalilah as walking! Kalilah made her first debut in 1999 in a belly dance troupe in Philadelphia, and soon discovered her love for the Classical Egyptian & Folkloric Dance styles. She found a teacher in Egyptian Dance Star, Sahra Saeeda, who performed in over 1,600 shows in Cairo alone! With Sahra, Kalilah earned a "Journey Through Egypt Certification," and studied the history and customs of Middle Eastern Dance. In 2002 Kalilah flew to Europe to begin her five year career abroad as a soloist in Spain, teaching and performing in the capital of Andalucia, Seville. Kalilah grew a reputation as THE belly dancer of choice for social events along the Mediterranean Coast, and was asked to perform in many parts of Europe as well! Today she travels all over the U.S. and internationally for performances in museums, universities, stage venues, and private events. No distance is too far as this dancing star LOVES to travel!"
