The Habibi’s are pleased to welcome Cassandra as our guest artist to our 2019 Annual Dance Concert and Seminar. She is recognized as one of the world’s foremost performers and choreographers of Middle Eastern dance. Her artistic intensity, musicality, and technique set her apart from the average performer and has lyrical grace, musical focus, and a sensuous quality of movement that brings mere technique to life.
Through her dedication, devotion, and discipline, Cassandra has earned worldwide acclaim from experts in the field as a master teacher, star performer, and creative artist in the field of Middle Eastern dance.
Cassandra embraced Middle Eastern dance in the early 1970s, and in 1975, as a student of Jamila Salimpour. In 1977, Cassandra relocated to Minneapolis, Minnesota, for more performing opportunities. She opened The Cassandra School in 1978 in response to numerous requests for classes from women who saw her nightclub performances and were inspired to learn.
