Ayshe's dance styles include: Turkish and Egyptian cabaret style bellydance, Indian dance, ancient Egyptian Pharaonic dance, and fusion/ fantasy bellydance. More recent projects and appearances: Until recently, Ayshe was working on creative performance projects and workshops with Venus Uprising and was performing in dance and fitness dvd's for World Dance New York. In the spring of 2009 she performed and taught at Maja's "Spirit of the Tribes" in Florida and had the honor to perform at Cirque du Soleil's premiere party for the show Kooza. Also, in 2009 she created a new group, "Cult of Isis", focused on performing ancient fusion/fantasy dances. The group premiered in the Venus Uprising show, Metamorphosis and at Rakkasah East of that year. In 2010-2013, she taught and performed at Rakkasah's Spring Caravan, and Cult of Isis was featured at the NY Theatrical Bellydance Conference , July 2010-11. In Spring, 2010, Ayshe joined Tayyar Akdeniz's "Folk Tours" as a personal assistant and member of the teaching staff, 2011-12. She taught and performed at the NY Theatrical Bellydance Conference, 2011. Currently, Ayshe has been developing a curriculum she calls "Orientalist Bellydance". Inspired from her many years studying with the enigmatic Marta Zorina, this technique combines concepts of movement rooted in ballet, with Middle Easter, Indian, and Flamenco styles of dance. Ayshe offers her Orientalist Bellydance classes on Sundays at Bellydance America. Ayshe's Wings of Isis Besides designing a number of the costumes featured in Goddessdance, Ayshe has been designing "Wings of Isis", a spectacular dance prop that transforms a dancer into a vision of a winged goddess. Ayshe is responsible for the initiation of "Isis wings" as a specialty for bellydance cabaret performances. Her instructional dvd, WINGS: THE COMPLETE TECHNIQUE, is the only one of its kind, fully describing and teaching, step by step, the movement vocabulary that Ayshe has created for dancing with wings. Wings were originally used for costuming in Las Vegas acts & Caribbean carnival parades. They found their way into Middle Eastern dance as a means to depict the Egyptian Goddess, Isis, who appears on ancient wall paintings with large bird wings. Ayshe designs wings for dancers worldwide. Her wings are featured in BELLY DANCE SUPERSTARS and this year they appeared in the MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE, as part of SEA WORLD'S float presentation. Her company, "Wings of Ayshe", emphasizes designing high quality wings of unusual fabrics and textures. Ayshe continues to experiment with wings, using them with many styles of music and movement.
