Young Soraya

A Star In The Making

Soraya began performing the ancient art of Middle Eastern dance at age 5. Her natural talent, ability and feel for the dance captured the hearts of audiences. As a young child, she danced at numerous International festivals, family parties (haflas), many talent showcases for children such as the famous (Lucille Russo's Boardwalk star Revue), TV shows and wedding parties, etc. Soraya began her successful career in ethnic dance as far back as she could remember. Middle Eastern dance and music was constantly around her and her parents rarely left her home with the babysitter! Now, she has blossomed into what a prominent Arabic newspaper referred to her.....”As an incomparable International Star, who constantly sets new trends in the dance world!”..... She has gone on to entertain audiences both nationally and internationally. Pictured is a photo taken at the “landmark” Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurant called “The Dyonysis” in Philadelphia, PA. Her family would also frequent another ethnic entertainment hot spot called “The Olympic Flame” that was in the heart of Atlantic City, NJ. Even as a little girl, “PRINCESS SORAYA” knew how to captivate and work a crowd with her lovely and adorable style and charm!
