Johari means ‘jewel’, and her dance certainly sparkles. She began her adventures in bellydance with DrumDance Bellydance in 1999, learning a fusion of Egyptian folkloric and American Tribal styles, and developing a passion for traditional folkloric bellydance. Her natural ability and instinctive talent has seen her blend traditional bellydance with other dance forms and musical genres, creating electrifying choreographies and performances.
Johari was a founding member of TABLA bellydance and was integral in the development of the troupe's style and much of its repertoire. Johari now shines her light in southern Queensland.
