AURELIA's CV :
Who is Aurelia aka Aurélie Sayegh? Some of you may remember her from having joined some of our classes. She distinguished herself by her extraordinary talent, her assiduous presence and engagement, and her methodical and meticulous approach to flamenco. She dazzled us by her gracefulness and motivation, and displayed discretion, motivation, and a wonderful personality. I am ecstatic that Aurélie will join us anew, this time as a dance Instructor.
Aurélie had for flamenco a "love at first sight" experience. This led her to pursue advanced training at the prestigious "Fundacion Cristina Heeren" since July 2017. She now has obtained her diploma in Flamenco, and comes back with an enormous amount of skills and materials that she is very excited to share with all of you.
Aurélie holds a BS in Hotel Management and a Degree in Marketing & Tourism from the IE School (Madrid), but her real passion is dancing.
From 2004 to 2012, she studied at the Caracalla Dance School learning Jazz, Hip Hop and Oriental Dance. From 2012 to 2014, she was a dance Instructor at the Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Zalka, progressing to become Dance Director then Choreographer at the College de la Sainte Famille in Fanar. At that time, she discovered flamenco and has since then focused on this art form with a passion.
Most recently, she has attended the Intensive Flamenco summer program at the Fundacion Cristina Heeren (Seviila), taken intensive Private lessons in Flamenco at Amor de Dios (Madrid), and attended numerous Flamenco Intermediate Workshops (tangos, bulerias, guajiras, and siguiriya) at Flamenco in Beirut.
Attesting to her skills and dedication, Aurélie has garnered coveted Awards from the Caracalla School and from the Arthur Murray Dance Studios, including: Most Dedicated Award in Caracalla Style (2008), Most Dedicated Award in Jazz (2009), and First Place in Smooth Dances and in Rhythm Dances at the Ciao Amore Professional Dance Competition in Rome (2015).
It is evident that Aurélie is a highly trained (and versatile) dancer and teacher. She has found in Flamenco her dominant passion. We are ecstatic and very lucky that she will join our ranks as an Instructor. I have no doubt she will be a superb addition and look forward to working with her!
Hope to see all of you!!
