Although exact origins are unknown, it is connected to many cultures and is likely the oldest form of dance. Many believe Raks Sharqi is unique in that it blends the sensual with the spiritual.

Dance Biography of Joanne Camilleri
Joanne’s passion for dance started at the age of five in ballet, jazz and various modern dance techniques. In 1988 she left Canada to explore the vast cultures of the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jeddah, North West Africa and Egypt) where she had the opportunity to witness firsthand the haunting spiritual depth and historical mysteries of the art of ‘Raks Sharqi’ (dance of the stomach).
In the early 90’s she continued her studies in India, Pakistan and Dubai exploring the subtle nuances of katach and baritnatium with world renowned teacher Partab Parawa, while widening her scope and understanding of the delicate intricacies of modern and tribal fusion belly dance choreography.

From California to Italy (including Malta – her beloved native homeland) and across North America she has inspired audiences with her own unique physical articulation of visually inspiring and uplifting dance performances.
