 Olga

by
the
cultural
 traditions
to
which
she
has
been

a

 From

was
 particularly
enamored
by
dances
 from
the
Middle
East
and
the
 northern
hemisphere
of
Africa‐‐ better
known
as
belly
dance‐‐and
 chose
these
dance
forms
as
the
 foundation
of
her
personal
fusion
 style
which
includes
martial
arts,
 circus
arts,
and
dances
from
the
 West
African
Diaspora
including
 Latin‐American
styles
and
Hip
 Hop.

From
2008‐2011
she
directed
the
belly
dance
troupe
Bastet
and
its
 charitable
sub‐division
Belly
Dance
for
Change.
She
is
the
founder
and
 artistic
director
of

new
dance‐theatre
collective
that
 combines
social
activism
and
philanthropy
with
folkloric,
modern,
 theatrical
and
experimental
movement.
Olga
has
coordinated
several
 charity
events
enlisting
talent
such
as

she
is
able
to
relate
 and

to
a
wider
audience
using
 language
that
is
universal
and
moves
 humanity
toward
healing.
