Liliana, originally from Ukraine, came to America two years ago. Before that she and her husband lived in the Middle East for five years. During that time, she fell in love with Oriental music and of course Belly Dance. Her very first teacher was Miriell and local instructors. In 2014 in the Belly Dance competition “Kiev Stars” held in Ukraine she won 1st place in “Folklore” and 2nd place in “Drum solo”. Liliana has taken additional workshops from Alla Kushnir, Sadie Marquardt, Alex Delora, Tamalyn Dallal, Nourhan Sharif, Simon Sako, Mariana Leus-Savytska and others. She has participated in Orleans Raks, Bayou Belly Festival, Seattle Oriental Bliss, Shimmy Soul and other events. Having recently relocated to Utah from New Orleans, Liliana is excited to meet local performers and artists in the Belly Dance Community.
