Ebony

Ebony’s playful and sharing spirit flavors both her performances and her approach to over 14 years of teaching belly dance. A combination of strong technique, musicality, and innovation are the foundations of her colorful dance presence. Ebony teaches and performs both traditional Raqs Sharqi and her own dynamic fusion belly dance style, which is fueled by her background in both oriental and urban dance genres.

Ebony has taught and performed throughout Asia, Canada, Europe and the United States. She has toured internationally with the world famous Bellydance Superstars and Bellydance Evolution and has performed in and choreographed for Zoe Jakes’ House of Tarot. Ebony has performed onstage with Grammy nominated band Thievery Corporation, with electronic musician and performance artist Peaches, and with Turkish/Electronic fusion recording artist Oojami. She is a member of the award winning troupe Raqs Sahara, has guest performed with Solstice Ensemble, has directed fusion troupes Raquettes ShimmyPop and Raqs Caravan Urban, and is a soloist at a variety of engagements including restaurants, private parties, weddings, festivals, concerts and numerous theater performances.

Along with her love of dance, Ebony is in love with teaching. A founding instructor of Sahara Dance - Washington DC’s Center for Middle Eastern Dance, her students describe her as “approachable” and her classes as “fun” and "challenging". She teaches weekly classes in both traditional and urban fusion formats and has choreographed for Raqs Sahara, Sahara Tribal, Raqs Caravan West, Raqs Caravan East, and has directed both Raquettes ShimmyPop and Raqs Caravan Urban. Newcomers to belly dance are Ebony's favorite students, as they are a major source of inspiration to her.

Ebony continues her own regular dance studies and has trained with world-renowned master instructors from traditional Raqs Sharqi and tribal fusion circuits. http://www.ebonyqualls.com/
