Reviews

“The towering Big Apple dancer showed a lot of seasoned poise and grace for a soloist, dressed in Indigo gothic white for her tribal fusion dance with an angel's touch. Slow, fluid and trance worthy, Elizabeth gave reason to believe that tribal fusion bellydance in the Big Apple is ready to turn the page past its initial exodus and approach a public next chapter of entertainers for the future.”
Brandon, Raqs America

“Elizabeth has a quality in her dance that is powerful and magnificent, while also being tender and fragile.”
Audience Member, Cincinnati performance
