Chris Campbell) has a polished and yet exuberant dance style. Her love of the dance and
the music comes out as soon as the music begins. Music and dance go
hand in hand for obvious reasons, and Sylvana uses dance to interpret
the mood of the music and to put movement to the underlying rhythms.
An admitted fan of both Egyptian and Persian Top 40 music, she has also recently been experimenting with dancing and choreographing to more
classical Middle Eastern orchestral music. Fortunately for all of us
who enjoy this art form, there is a lifetime of music and dance to
continue to explore.
