Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Mariana has over 25 years of dance experience and expertise. Originally, Mariana was classically trained in Western dance forms including Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Modern, as well as Flamenco and Latin ballroom. She credits these dance beginnings to leading her to Middle Eastern dance (raqs sharqi) and what has now become a deep love for the art form.

Mariana has and continues to perform at all the top restaurants, hookah lounges and nightclubs in and around the city, including (to name a few): Fez, Casablanca, Marrakesh, CousCous, Norma's, Aladdin's, and Alamodak. She has also performed at over 100 private events including events for universities, and celebrities. Past events include: wedding receptions, mehndi celebrations, quinceaneras, anniversary, birthday, retirement, theme and bachelorette parties, family reunions, baptisms/christenings, and holiday celebrations.

Mariana is a consummate professional, and regularly and exclusively trains with top Egyptian instructors, to continue to hone and perfect the Egyptian dance aesthetic and technique. Therefore, you are always guaranteed an authentic performance. Mariana's performances include her mastery of veil, candle tray balancing, sword balancing, cane (assaya) dance, impressive Isis wing dances (*now with LED lights!), the playing of finger cymbals (zils), powerful dancing to drum (doumbek), and the use of fan veils/ feather fans. For examples, please see her videos above, or view them on her website (please select: 'media' tab).

Mariana was absolutely perfect! Mariana was on time and communicated well with me ahead of time. She handled our special requests of songs and performed exceptionally. She engaged everyone at the party and was very nice. Her dancing was very professional and family friendly. I am so glad that I went with Mariana for my party! I would definitely hire her again.

Mariana was on-time, professional, and well skilled at her craft. She was the talk of the night! She performed a variety of selections that was crowd pleasing. Even though this was a home birthday celebration, Mariana displayed versatility and confidence in the unfamiliar setting and conformed flawlessly to the environment. I would recommend her if you want your guests to be awed at your event.

Mariana is a true artist and professional. Before her magnificent performance, we discussed details. She was extremely open to crafting a presentation that fit my specific taste. It was a joy working with her prior to the event. The presentation, itself, was no less than awesome. It started with her interpretation of the Dance of Seven Veils. It featured multicolored veils and haunting melodies. Mariana’s motions were mesmerizing. The rhythms she chose were alluring. The pace of her dance was varied; which added to the excitement generated. Her interaction with her audience was consistent and masterful. The performance was seductively romantic.

Everyone was amazed by the experience of having Mariana display her talents. She was very accommodating, professional, and kept everyone excited throughout her performance. I would definitely hire her again for another events. Her wardrobe was outstanding and the music was second to none. My daughters were still dancing and enjoying the music after her performance. Thanks again for making our cocktail party a success.
