Yasmina has been teaching belly dancing since 1989 in the Phoenix area. She teaches workshops in and around the State of AZ and US and was thrilled to be one of the instructors at the Las Vegas Bellydance Intensive in Sept. 2012. In July 2011 she won Headliner of the Year at Wiggles of the West Dance Competition in Las Vegas along with taking 3rd Place in the Alternative Category. Her labor of love website, www.joyofbellydancing.com is known worldwide. Yasmina started her website in 1990 to inform dancers and dance enthusiast about belly dancing and the various forms of our dance. Yasmina’s TV show “Joy of Belly Dancing” lasted 13 years in the Valley of the Sun from 1990 – 2003. The show was both instructional and performance with spotlighting dancers and musicians from all over the US. From the show Yasmina produced 5 performance videos for the market. After her first belly dance class she was hooked on this beautiful art form and hasn’t stopped learning and dancing. Her style of dance is American style with tribal fused in. American style is a fusion of many styles of belly dancing in itself and with tribal added in it creates a unique blend.
