BIO

 

A Dance Manitoba Gold Award recipient, Accalia continues to collaborate within the bellydance community and the greater Arabic-Canadian community in Manitoba. She has choreographed, directed and performed for The Arabic-Canadian Heritage Celebration, at weddings and restaurants across Manitoba - and at Festivals across Canada!

Forever a student of dance and life, she strikes a flexible balance of pure artistic channeling of the rasa, and ongoing investment towards technical excellence. 

 

Accalia dances in expected as well as unexpected contexts for bellydance; you may see her dancing at a hookah lounge, or wedding, yet, you may also see her work alongside a spoken-word artist or electronic DJ. She has performed with Juno-nominee Adham Shaikh, and collaborated with drummers, Indian musicians (sitar, dilruba, dol), and African drummers alike. Her primary movement vocabulary is bellydance - a mix of Improvised Tribal Style, and Egyptian - integrated with western and latin dance forms. Accalia has received an arts grant from the Manitoba Arts Council to study with Rachel Brice in fall, 2017.
