About Stephi

Stephi has a strong background in language and culture studies and whilst studying in Spain, became intrigued by Arabic influences in the country. From here she developed a love for Middle Eastern and Arabic music which naturally led her towards Arabic/Egyptian dance.  She has been described as an elegant, natural and earthy dancer, providing uplifting and powerful performances full of fun and warmth.  She is regularly requested to perform and teach bellydance (Arabic/Egyptian dance) at festivals, community events, weddings, hen parties and other functions.
