ZULEIKHA – Early History

Zuleikha is a movement artist known for her weavings of story, rhythm, dance and innovation. Growing up in a western classical music family playing piano and flute, Zuleikha’s movement background spans the avant garde, studying with Anna Halprin from childhood through the Ali Akbar College of Indian Classical dance and music. She studied music in Afghanistan with the great master, Ustad Hashim Chisti, lived and danced in Bali and practiced movement forms in Asia, dancing and teaching in the temples of Japan. From the fusion of western avant-garde and eastern classical dance, she is constantly creating a contemporary rhythmic language, which embodies an expressive form of spontaneity and improvisation through movement.
