Jamie has been bellydancing and choreographing in the Lehigh Valley area since 2007 when she began studying Middle Eastern dance under Amala Gameela. In 2008, she became a founding member of Abzahrah Middle Eastern Dance Company based out of Bethlehem, PA. She has studied with such renowned teachers as Mohamid Shahin of Cairo, Katalin Schafer of Hungary, Suzanna del Vecchio, and Ranya Renee, among others. Abzahrah performs all over the tri-state area at festivals, charity events, haflas, and educatonal programs of all kinds. Jamie, under her stage name "Noorah," specializes in modern and classic Egyptian cabaret as well as Egyptian folkloric dances.

Middle Eastern dance, commonly known as bellydance or danse Orientale, is a mesmerizing art form originating from a culture rich in history and beauty. As a dance style, it welcomes people from all backgrounds and of all body types. You might think, “Oh, I can’t move like that!” but you will be pleasantly surprised to learn that, with some practice, you can! Come enjoy an evening full of laughs, smiles, and shimmies with friends!
