The Maya Company offers dance performance training to dancers who would like to concentrate on performance skills, stage work, big stage choreographies and Solo performance work.



The Maya Company have a professional troupe of dancers that captivate any audience with a wide selection of exciting choreographies, wonderful dancing, intriguing props, bright imported Egyptian costumes, and big smiles!
Most members of the Maya Performance troupe have travelled to Cairo to train with Master Teachers and to enjoy the experience of dancing in Cairo, which has given the dancers an intimate experience with the origin and true heart of Belly dance. They have also had on-going extensive training with Senta and have attended workshops with international dance teachers. They are also encouraged to enter competitions and to continually grow as dancers and performers.


When we perform dance we give a piece of ourselves to the

audience, we share our deepest soul energy. And when, at the

end, the audience acknowledges the dancer with applause, it is

the audiences turn to give that same energy back to the dancer.

We dance and teach at all types of functions:

  • Arabian themed events

  • Corporate Functions

  • Birthday Parties

  • Bridal Showers and Mendhi parties

  • Baby Showers

  • Special Egyptian Wedding Performances

  • Wellness Days

  • Children’s Birthday Parties

  • Team Building Events
