Native Egyptian Nada El Masriya grew up belly dancing fully immersed within the rich cultural and historical environment of metropolitan Cairo. At early age Nada began her intensive training and performance with the prestigious Reda Troupe School (Egypt’s first and most famous folkloric dance company) as well as many of the Egyptian masters and soloists with the Reda Troupe. Nada toured across Egypt performing in over one hundred performances, and over the course of her professional career in Egypt,  danced numerous times for several Middle Eastern Royal Families, and members of the Egyptian government during “6th of October” ceremonies. Nada also performed several times on National Egyptian television.

Nada is highly sought after as an instructor and performer. Her foremost goal as a teacher of Egyptian Dance is to take her students beyond mechanical technique and to nurture their development into culturally fluent, artistically fluid dancers.

As an artistic director, performer and teacher, Nada employs her unique in-depth insider’s perspective to enrich the hearts and minds of her students and her audiences with an accurate understanding of the rich cultural and historical traditions of her country of origin, Egypt.

Nada El Masriya is the Artistic Director of The Egyptian Dance Academy  in Toronto, Canada’s premier source for Egyptian Belly Dance and Folklore.  Please visit her WEBSITE to read her full biography.
