Jasmin is one of the first American dancers to be invited to teach and perform at the famous Ahlan We Sahlan dance festival held in Cairo, Egypt. She is one of only 6 dancers to be awarded “Best Modern Egyptian Dancer” by the International Academy of Middle Eastern Dance.
Dancing since the age of four, Jasmin has developed a thorough dance background in ballet, jazz and modern dance. This classical dance background has grounded her in discipline and planted a desire to promote her love for oriental dance in such a manner that she catapults it into a higher level of respect around the globe. She discovered Egyptian dance at the age of 18, and focused on studying the art form rather than simply the entertainment version of belly dance. She studied with the best resources available in the world, mentoring under Ibrahim Farrah, former dance master, author, editor of Arabesque Magazine, and director of the Near East Dance Theatre of New York, and secondly with Mahmoud Reda, former Vice Minister of Cultural Affairs in Egypt, artistic director of the world renown “Reda Dance Troupe”, author and actor in films throughout the Middle East.
