Award Winning Ultimate Troupe Hips Of Fury 2006
The collidascopic eyes of Leilainia.
Born into the world of art and dance in El Paso, Texas, I was constantly surrounded by philosophers, artists, performances, writers and people of inspiration an passion. They taught me Middle Eastern Dance. They taught me steps and showmanship. They taught me not in a class setting, but in a life setting. I learned through watching, playing and appreciating. It was a terrific fantasy land of preparation, performance and creation. It was a dream of mystical colors constantly shifting and entertaining. I watched as these wonderful creators told their stories through art. But I was young. I had no story of my own. I had no inner trauma, turmoil, love or loss. I had no formulated truths. I was simply a goddess in training. My mother would take me with her to yoga, African dance, Middle Eastern dance, ballet, modern and flamenco classes. I thought this was the normal life.
As I grew I learned through the uniqueness of my upbringing and nourished it. I am trained in Cabaret, Gypsy, Fusion, Egyptian and Turkish Belly Dance. I have studied and given workshops in Texas, New Mexico, New York and California.
Dance is not a hobby to me. It is me.
"Leilainia embodies the true essence of a dancer. She is graceful yet lively; playful yet mysterious."
"You are stunning. We all can't stop talking about you! Thanks for making our evening so over the top! " Jennifer Zuffinett
