Dance Biography of Joanne Camilleri

Joanne’s passion for dance started at the age of five in ballet, jazz and various modern dance techniques. In 1988 she left Canada to explore the vast cultures of the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jeddah, North West Africa and Egypt) where she had the opportunity to witness firsthand the haunting spiritual depth and historical mysteries of the art of ‘Raks Sharqi’ (dance of the stomach).

In the early 90’s she continued her studies in India, Pakistan and Dubai exploring the subtle nuances of katach and baritnatium with world renowned teacher Partab Parawa, while widening her scope and understanding of the delicate intricacies of modern and tribal fusion belly dance choreography.

From California to Italy (including Malta - her beloved native homeland) and across North America she has inspired audiences with her own unique physical articulation of visually inspiring and uplifting dance performances. Today she lives in Toronto  with her three beautiful daughters continuing to teach and perform. 

Joanne is also the headlining dancer at The Sultans Tent located at 49 Front Street 3 nights a week. She is presently in rehearsal with her creative team and belly dance troupe to continue her workshop production of INANNA. Stay tuned for me performance details....she will be showcasing this work later in the summer of 2012 featuring all original choreography and original musical score by local composer Chris Hall. 

Joanne is the Founder and Artistic Director of Vivace Studios
