“Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with! She danced beautifully at our wedding, and months later guests are still talking about how fantastic she was! She really got the crowd going, and was an excellent ice breaker for the evening. All 250 guests were in awe of her, and even came out from the patio area to watch! Great dancer, very professional, and a total sweetheart. It was so great seeing her dance with the flower girls and even got my uncle to dance (he hasn’t danced in over a decade). I would completely recommend her for any wedding or event you are planning. It will definitely make for a memorable evening!” August 2015

“I thoroughly enjoyed your performance at the Bellyworld hafla on Sunday night – from the fluid opening veil work to the well-choreographed & well-executed sections that followed. Having just arrived in London from Australia, this is the first bellydance event I’ve attended here and it was great to see some classically elegant Raqs Sharqi on the program. Looking forward to seeing more of your performances at future events.”
