Welcome to Orientale Dance  with Ma*Shuqa Mira Murjan

International Performer and Instructor - The Professional Difference - Elegance of Style

*An Accomplished Performer and Instructor

Ma*Shuqa is known for instructing dancers in the Art of Bellydance, which Ma*Shuqa does with mastery in her performances and coaching.  Ma*Shuqa began dancing in 1973 and immersed herself in the dance genre.  She reached international fame as a master teacher and starred in many Gala shows.  Ma*Shuqa melds her professional background in instructional design and teaching experience with her passion for creating dancers with depth of performance and uniquely special dance styles that touch the hearts and souls of audiences.  Ma*Shuqa is world renown as the first performer with Isis Wings – creating and dancing with them 30 years ago.  She developed Ma*Shuqa Method which provides dancers a unique structure for creating their own signature performances and dancing with finger cymbals (sagaats) that capture the musicality of Middle Eastern music and presenting dance that captures the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide.

Ma*Shuqa's dance style and teaching repertoire reflect years of study evident in her dazzling performances to Egyptian, Greek, Arabic, Turkish, Armenian, Moroccan, Persian, and Lebanese music.  A comment often heard from her audiences in Cairo, Germany, and Athens; "She understands our music and our culture...in her dancing, we see the expression of joy and emotions of our culture."
