Maha began dancing at a very early age, in fact, as soon as she learned how to walk! Maha is Canadian by nationality wtih middle eastern and north African roots. Growing up in an Arabic family that opportuned occasions of Belly Dancing during gatherings spurred her desire to transfer this passion for Belly Dancing to others which later mushroomed into other dance style passions.  Her other passion, Latin dancing, came to rise in 1997, where she partnered with well known local Montreal (Canada) dancers, her home town.  Maha performed in several shows and guided the instruction of dancers from 2001 to present.  She also made several appearances on T.V. and the Cinema in Canada, U.S, and Cyprus.  Maha holds degrees in Marketing & Management and English Literature from McGill University and Concordia University. During her course of university studies she continued her passion for dance by studying Ballet Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Ballroom Dancing, Flamenco and Salsa.  Maha is also fluent in 5 languages (English, Arabic, French, Spanish and Greek). Maha lived in Syria, Algeria, U.S., and Canada these countries gave Maha access to a myriad of dance styles and skills.
