About Nesma as a person,as a teacher and as an artist whatever I write won’t show how much I admire her and how much I believe she is invaluable in the oriental dance world. It is not only her skills, education and dance that make her extraordinary but also her perception of beauty and the reflection of her elegance and inner warmth in her dance. I can see that in every course ,in every costume, choreography, graphic design.
I literally feel the luckiest dancer in the world!! Two years ago I saw that AATEC provides four grants and I was dreaming of studying with her. But just because I was watching her on youtube and following her work on facebook .I had no recommendations, I just knew I have to do this because I was craving for knowledge and resources. But this program was above all my expectations, it was even better. I have so many resources now, new steps, combinations, arm movements, music, knowledge on music, styles, history. I feel ready to put in form my inspirations, not others.
Because now I have the tools to express them. And for this reason I will be grateful to her for ever and I will wish the best for her and her family.
