It’s taken well over 1001 Friday and Saturday nights of sinuous undulating and sensuous shaking to reach Bellydancer-Stardom but Azura who was born in Melbourne to Anglo-Indian parents has risen gracefully through the ranks from dancing at wedding functions and 21sts to Celebrity Events and Television.
You may remember her early work as resident dancer at Turkish Restaurants Sofra’s, Kilim, Zara, Saray, Pammukale, Pinarbasi, Golden Terrace, The Star and Zara 2 or perhaps you attended one of the hundreds of Turkish Weddings, Festivals or Parties she shook up between 1996 and 2003.
With an impressive resume as a solo artist, Azura’s industry experience covers TV features on Neighbours, Coxy’s Big Break and Rove Live plus red carpet events for Pamela Anderson, Tara Moss, Mark Pennell, Kathy Freeman, Shane Warne, Kim Johnston, Tottie Goldsmith, David Hughes and Ernie Sigley. She has represented both Turkish and Egyptian dance alongside International Stars Ozgan Deniz, Hossam Ramzy, Omar Faruk Tekbilek and Tukish Idol winners Abidin, Firdevs and Bayhan.
Azura’s personal contribution to Melbourne’s rich and diverse Bellydance scene reaches far and wide having entertained literally thousands of audiences and encouraging many an aspiring dancer to take up her craft.
Azura performs, teaches, choreographs and directs large groups of dancers in spectacular stage shows for clients such as World Movie Channel, Microsoft, IBM, Melbourne City Council and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation, her own energetic, rhythmic and animated style drawing largely upon the glamorous stars and romantic settings of Classic Bollywood and Egyptian Cinema.
