Yasmina La Roche Biography
Yasmina is originally from Southern California.
She grew up dreaming of becoming a dancer. Her mother had been a Professional Ballroom dancer from Chicago and inspired Yasmina to achieve her own dreams of dancing. As a young woman Yasmina looked for modern dance classes at the local college and found none. A friend suggested taking Belly Dance classes at the local YWCA. She instantly fell in love with the classes. A few months later she heard of an Egyptian teacher in her town and began studying with Sultana Ebrahim. Sultana taught her the true essence of Egyptian Dance especially how it is felt when dancing to the music. She, Yasmina, has always felt this way from the time she was very little.
Yasmina knows that when she begins to dance to the ancient rhythms and hears the music
it takes her to a wonderful place. Dancing makes her feel free, like a bird flying for the first time or the wind blowing in your hair, and the sea breeze in your face. From the beginning of her dance career, Yasmina has always looked for the beauty in the dance; showing dignity and pride, with love for everyone.
Since then, she has experienced a lifetime of dancing
from her introduction to the Middle Eastern Community performing in nightclubs, banquets, parties, theaters, weddings, concerts and stage shows. In 1990 Yasmina was honored with being certified in Egyptian Cabaret and Theatrical Dancing by Sultana Ebrahim Dance Academy.
Today Yasmina lives in Reno Nevada.
She continues her professional Egyptian Dance, teaching both Egyptian Oriental and Folkloric Dance. Yasmina is the Artistic Dance Director and Choreographer of Troupe de La Roche' and Troupe Jasmine and has been teaching classes since 1994. She encourages her students to explore the true essence of the dance, showing them how to awaken the Goddess within each, sharing the journey that they all experience, and finding each person's inner beauty.
