Safi... means pure, crystalline, that maintains its own essence.
Hello! My name is Safi and I teach bellydance because I love this dance and I love teaching. I have been dancing Oriental Dance continuously for more than 10 years and I keep on learning permanently. I have studied with national teachers of Stylized Bellydance, Oriental Dance and Egyptian Style, as well as with outstanding international masters.
In 2015 I traveled to Egypt to learn in the workshops of Ahlan Festival Wa Sahlan in Cairo and soak in the culture that surrounds this beautiful dance and in April 2017 I participated in international festivals NY Cairo and Cairo Khan (USA), where I took more than 50 hours of classes. That same year I began my Arabic language studies, which I continued formally throughout 2018 and in January 2019 I approved the Diploma in Basic Level of Arabic Language in the Center for Arab Studies of University of Chile. In 2018 I also performed the certification "3 Stages of Mastery" with international dancer Rachel Brice.
I am currently studying Arabic language and music, as well as dance history, oriental dance and academic technique. The expression, communication and art in its different forms have always been fundamental in my life. I studied classical music for 8 years and I am also a Journalist and Graduate in Social Communication from University of Chile. In parallel to my career in dance, I have taught workshops on Effective Communication and Oral and Corporal Expression
My dance is in continuous evolution because periodically I keep perfecting myself, learning new techniques and improving. If you want to know a bit about my style, I invite you to see the videos that are on the page.

May I help you? These are the four services that at this moment I put at your disposal:
1) Workshops and Show in your city / school / event. In the posters you can see some of my proposals. Normally, the workshops last two and a half hours and focus on Intermediate level, but we can adapt them to your needs. If you are interested in this alternative, contact me to see the availability and agree on the details and values.
2) Dancer for shows and private events. If you have a celebration like marriage, bachelorette party, birthday, anniversary, company party, etc., a belly dancer will add elegance, mystery and sophistication to your event. You can see more about the conditions of this service here.
3) Regular classes. If you want to learn the belly dance in a systematic way, I invite you to my regular classes in Safi Danza Árabe, in Ñuñoa, Santiago (Chile). I'm sure you'll love it. You can see more details here.
4) Private classes and / or mentoring. The classes are at your house or through internet and we work at your own pace and according to your needs, we do technique, choreographic development, etc. The tutoring is, instead, a relaxed conversation in a place that should be agreed or online, where we address your concerns related to dance and I can advise you with a more experienced look.
