It gives me great pleasure to announce the first oriental weekend intensive with one of the most famous greek oriental dancers, teacher and choreographer MARIA AYA!

Specializing in folkloric styles, Maria Aya is known for her authentic Egyptian baladi style, her deep emotional connection with Tarab music and sense of humour. She has taught workshops all over Europe, and is one of the featured teachers at the prestigious Nile group festival of Cairo. As the Director of the oriental charity group “Malema’s Banat”, she has produced more than ten Theatre Shows in Greece and her students won the April 2009 first price of the NileGroup Festival of Cairo group category. She has served as a judge in various Oriental dance competitions both in Greece and Internationally.  Maria Aya is also the Co-Director of the greek “Kazafy Troupe”.
