Azura is from the San Francisco Bay Area; a diverse cultural center in California. An award winning performer who has been dancing and acting for over 20 years, she has been inspired by Jazz, Ballet, Scottish Highland, Scottish Country & Ballroom styles, but has found her true calling in the mysterious dances of the Middle East. It is this ancient art form that speaks to her soul and makes her heart sing. With a strong foundation in Arabic dance, focusing on the "classical" with a fusion of Spanish influences, Azura is a dedicated dancer whose specialties include working with veils, swords, skirts & Manton (shawls). Committed to discovering new ways to combine diverse styles of dance, Azura strives to bring forth the power of this form of expression to create a connection with her audience.
Azura’s love for movement, music and history has prompted her to travel and explore varied dance forms and their countries of origin. Over the course of her career, she has performed at clubs, private parties, events and restaurants throughout the San Francisco bay area. She has also danced competitively, winning awards, titles and acclaim along the way. Azura continues to broaden and enrich her interpretative style by experimenting with diverse dance forms and keeping current through regular participation in classes and workshops.
