Kevla’s dance education began when she was 5 years old, with years of extensive study in ballet, jazz, and modern.  Bringing this background to her love of Middle Eastern dance gives her a versatility and dedication to be reckoned with.  She has been performing as a professional soloist in bellydance since 2014, and prior to that with professional troupes.

Kevla is fully Covid vaccinated, with four shots of Moderna.
