Leslie has been bellydancing for 12 years.
Leslie dances for audiences in and around the Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and has appeared in more than 100 weddings and gala events in her career. She loves getting audiences on their feet to enjoy the music and break the ice at parties. While having a bellydancer at your party is often surprise, the bigger surprise is the artistry and grace that Leslie brings to her shows. She is not only a dancer, but an entertainer. Like any entertainer, she puts her soul into her dancing because she loves to connect with audiences. Don’t be surprised if when she takes the stage you find yourself on your feet, moving uncontrollably to the rhythm of the drum.
Specializing in sword balancing and silk veil work, she has a flexibility and timing that is sure to impress. Her education in the art of middle eastern dance helps her choose the right music and costume for any event. No two parties are ever the same! As artistic director for Sahara Nights Bellydance, she took home the first place award in the Duo category for Sahara Nights sword performance at the 2017 Dance Orientale Competition in Washington. Trained in ballet, jazz, latin dance and Brazilian Samba, Leslie is also an accomplished choreographer.
