Ahava

Ahava, meaning "Beloved" in Hebrew, has been studying Middle Eastern Dance since the year 2000. She first began by studying Tribal with Frederique and then later went to study Cabaret with Leea Aziz. Although she's taken many forms of dance, ballet, tap, jazz, modern, salsa, and hip hop, she has always gravitated towards ethnic dance.

In 2005, she joined the multi-award winning troupe, Sahar. In February, 2006, she was a finalist in the Bellydance Superstars audition. Ahava has won numerous awards and competitions, including the 2006 Queen of Raks Sharqui.

When she is not dancing, she is attending school and is currently working on her website.
