Jajira is a primarily self taught fusion belly dance artist. She began
her journey when a friend performed during a youth event in Cincinnati
in 2001. Jajira knew this was something she wanted to do. Jajira began
collecting beginner DVD's and taught herself as much as she could at
home when no one was around.
In 2003, Jajira went to her first hafla
in Dayton Ohio. She was hooked. In September of 2004, Jajira stepped
out onto the floor for the first time at Kira's Oasis for her first
Over time, Jajira had lots of fun learning, growing and
meeting so many wonderful dancers all over the midwest. This is an art
form in which will never stop growing, evolving and will be something
Jajira will never let go of. Her style is a mix of old Egyptian style
and Tribal Fusion circa 2005. Jajira also pulls from dark and gothic
fusion styles. Being a dancer who doesn't like choreography, her
performances are from the heart. Jajira just likes to get up and dance.
No 2 performances are exactly the same.
If enough interest is
generated in the Phoenix area, Jajira hopes to begin teaching in the
next year. :)
