Since a young girl, Sasha has been renowned for her knowledge,
authenticity, and dedication to the art of Middle Eastern Dance. Sasha
has a multicultural background which gave her the advantage in receiving
the arts of different dances from her ancestors.
One of her greatest influences and strongest role models was her Armenian
Ahavne Khougazian, a Holocaust survivor. After having lost
her family and friends to the Holocaust, she fled to America where
dance became one of her surviving tools. Ahavne found dancing therapeutic,
and soon forgot her past, going on to become a professional dancer.
Sasha was born in Brooklyn, New York into an environment where everyone
was always dancing.
She learned much from her Latin grandmother
including her favorites of the French and Latin dances. Later, studying
under the now famous Serena, Sasha continued her education at NYU
– with a major in dance. Sasha teaches different styles of dances
with roots from many places including: Armenia, Egypt, Arabia, Lebanon,
Spain, and the Orient. She has taught since 1980 in New York, Ohio,

style of teaching rewards her students with fun and accomplishments.
The dance is therapeutic, good for the mind, body, and soul. It is
