"Each decent Oriental dancer must express life, death, happiness, sorrow, love and anger, but above all she must have dignity." ~Tahia Karioka

Iris took her first steps in Oriental dance in Eindhoven, where she worked as a teacher, dancer and choreographer with El-Fatinat troupe for over a decade. Her Egyptian oriented style is versatile and technically solid, exploring modern concepts while remaining baladi at heart. She is sought after for her taqasim work, authentic baladi feel and extensive musicality.

Iris performs and teaches internationally, forms a duo with dancepartner Tato and has toured music festivals throughout Europe with Electro-Shaabi collective ‘Cairo Liberation Front’. She also works as a dance coach and choreographer for Oriental dancers of all levels. Her work has been featured in shows and competitions throughout the world.

Iris has received multiple international awards, among which various notations as BeNeLux champion, Bellydancer of the World and an Orientalicious cup.
