About Me

Dancing Details

Welcome to the site of Elviza Isis & Symphony!
 
I have studied Middle Eastern dance for the past nine+ years, along with my daughter Symphony. We have trained with several of the top dancers in Miami and South Florida- primarily from Mideastern Dance Exchange, located in Miami Beach- as well as taking specialty workshops with various internationally-acclaimed dancers who have visited Miami. We strive to continue sharpening our skills and expanding our repertoire of dance styles in order to perform shows of the utmost excitement and professionalism. We are available individually or as a group including other beautiful dancers from our Gypsy Magic dance troupe for your special event. Consider hiring a bellydancer for your next holiday party, birthday party, baby shower, wedding reception, children's party, anniversary, grand opening, dance show, sales event, rock concert, music video, movie, commercial, themed party (Arabic, Greek, Rennaissance, Medieval, Mediterranean) or for appearances at your fine restaurant! Add an element of exotic beauty, mysterious music and uniqueness that will be remembered by your guests and patrons for years to come.

I also enjoy singing, attending concerts, and am currently 'attempting' to learn to play guitar, autoharp & doumbek. I am a Miami native but have lived everywhere from North Miami Beach to deep in the Redlands (the 'boonies' of Dade county).

Isis-Elviza AND Elviza-Isis??  Or... "What is that supposed to mean??"
 
Okay, okay! Yes, I did switch the name around recently, for a couple of reasons. I liked the flow of Isis-Elviza better, but had always intended that the short version of that would be Elviza (as Tamalyn Dallal is often called just Dallal). But, naturally, everyone seems to have shortened it to Isis. That's fine, but of course there are several dancers who use that name, and also that part of my name was bestowed on me by someone else (who named me after the Bob Dylan song, not solely because of the Egypt connection), while Elviza was my own creation (which apparently has at least four pronunciations to top it all off!). I didn't want to drop Isis altogether as it has sentimental value, so I did the old switcheroo. As for what each part means that's not too hard to figure out, I think!?!
