This is the fourth time Basimah has been a part of Bloom, performing with different belly dance groups each time. This year, she is performing
on Saturday in the 7:00 PM show and is also performing with Kamilah Bellydance on Saturday at 4:00 PM.
Basimah has been belly dancing for six years, learning many styles, but focusing on American/Traditional Cabaret and American Tribal Style (ATS). She enjoys the variety of dance styles, props, and costuming offered through belly dance and also enjoys mixing all dance types together and creating her own style when given the opportunity!!
Since 2014, she has studied under the directorship of Kamilah Belly Dance and has also attended many workshops taught by some of the best: Virginia Mendez, Mahaila El Helwa, Fahtiem, and Sadie to name a few. She has been dancing with the troupe, Roses of the Realm, since 2015, performing at the Carolina Renaissance Festival each year.
