Naima Yazbek was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with Lebanese, Portuguese and Spanish origins. With a degree in Psychology, she pursued her passion and made a career out of dancing and singing. Her theatrical and musical background, as well as her dedication and research in Oriental dance, Samba, Capoeira, Brazilian dances and others, have helped her define her style.
In a search for her Arabic roots, Naima started Oriental dancing in Brazil, in 1996. Since then, she has lived and performed in Germany, England, Spain and Lebanon. In between those trips, she made several visits to Egypt and ended dignity and beauty of Oriental Dancing, a dignity that she believes has gotten lost in the Arabic society; a society up finding in Lebanon a basis for her Oriental Dance work and Brazilian Culture dissemination. Through classes, choreographing, performances in video clips, movies, weddings, events and restaurants, she dreams to bring back the that has yet to value the art of dancing.
