Ishtar Dance Academy

Ishtar is an accredited international dancer with more than 2 decades of professional experience. She embarked on her amazing artistic journey when at the age of 2 she joined a local dance school. She continued her dance education which included Latin, Jazz ballet, Street dance, Hip hop, and became a teenage Ballroom champion. She went on to work as an actress and choreographer for a regional theatre company, before travelling the world. During a working visit to the Middle East she discovered the world of Oriental Dance, which made a lasting impression and has influenced her artist career ever since.

After studying the roots of folkloric and popular dance on three continents, she helped launch the Aarhus Oriental Dance Society (Denmark) in 2003, and as a board member she worked to attract more people to the fascinating world of belly dance, whilst continuing her own professional development as a dancer and performer.
