Halawa runs the uber-successful Zahirah Middle Eastern Belly Dance School in Prince George. She has taken Teacher Training Level I with international master dancer Hadia and has trained with a variety of excellent teachers including Nath Keo, Saboura, Xanthoula, Yasmina Ramzy, Bozenka, and Ava Fleming.
The Zahirah Middle Eastern Belly Dancers have successfully competed in the Prince George Dance Festival and recieved top honors for their enthusiastic and exotic art form. The choreographies written by Halawa are award winning year after year.
Halawa was given the opportunity to perform in the 2009 production of Ashra featuring world renouned Bozenka. This amazing production was to celebrate Nath Keo’s 10th anniversary in Middle Eastern Bellydance. Dancing in the McPherson Theatre in Victoia, B.C. was a dream come true for Halawa as it put her talent and this beautiful art form on the same stage as the National Ballet. Halawa was recently asked to return for the 2010 performace in Victoria in October to accompany the amazing Ava Fleming in Nath Keo’s An Eveing at the Oasis. The show was a huge success for all of the dancers involved.
