"Gemma established herself as a worl-class dancer in the field of middle eastern dance. At present, she leads a new generation of dancers trained at her school."
L'Hebdo Magazine Beirut

Choreographer, performer and instructor since 1997, is the founder of the « 1001 Nuits Company »® .

“In a modernist way, Gemma disrupt the tradition of Egyptian baladi, when the dancer performs lonely, surrounded by musicians”

From Beirut to London, Paris and the famous stage of La Cigale, the 1001 Nuits shows have raised oriental dancing to the rank of art.

Gemma managed to give oriental music a unique style, a clever mix of technique and grace.

Through her choreographies, she offers a modern and rigorous version of this age old dance, far from the usual oriental clichés.

Classicaly trained since chilhood, Gemma discovered middle-eastern dance when she was 18 years old, refined her art in Cairo with the greatest oriental masters and became professional dancer in 1995.

Her regular trips to Egypt helped her to continuously develop her knowledge in Egyptian culture, music and tradition.

Knowledge and passion that she spreads in the world throught the interpretation of her choreographies.

 

As a professional dancer since 1995, Gemma performed on various stages in France and abroad.
