Teachers Janina Has
weekend workshops, etc:
Farha had several brushes with bellydance before it took root in her life. Finally in 2005 a friend's DVD and information on the web started her journey in earnest. A dedicated student, Farha sought out resources when beginning her Middle Eastern dance study while attending university in a small town in Western NY. She spent many hours mastering technique and trouble shooting mechanics in her first years of study, giving her an exceptional ability to help her own students through any trouble spots.
From the beginning Farha has found joy in this dance and been driven to share it with others. She began performing professionally at the urging of her first long-term teacher, Hannah in 2009 at the Greek family-restaurant The Black Olive. She was a regular there for years and learned the importance of inspiring her audience to cast aside their worries and join the party.
