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 since 2014, and prior to that performed with professional bellydance troupes.
