Aylin

When Aylin discovered Middle Eastern dance, it was a life-changing moment. The beauty of the movement, the expressive character of the dancer and the amazing music had her spellbound. Ever since then she has returned almost daily to the dance as a thirsty traveler seeks the oasis. She believes true Middle Eastern dance shows the heart and soul of the dancer.

Aylin enjoys dancing with a troupe or as a solo performer. She does most of her own choreography, as well as costume design and creation. She has learned many props and uses them to add variety to her dance. Aylin likes to teach, and in 2009, she started the Sight of Water Dance Studio at the request of several students. She chose the name of her studio because the beauty of Middle Eastern Dance is as breathtaking as the sight of water in the desert.
