Vadalna is blessed to regularly work with some incredibly talented men and women. We would like to highlight several dancers that will be joining us in 2015 for our upcoming large-scale projects.

Anne Beal – Anabee

Anabee has been studying Middle Eastern Dance for the past ten years, primarily from Jamileh out of Portland, Maine. Her dance is routed in traditional Arabic/Turkish style. She has spent the past five years bringing the ancient art of ‘Belly Dance’ to her community by both teaching classes and hosting a monthly dance event with live music and a variety of local performers. She has explored the history of the dance with numerous workshops from artists like Karim Nagi, Dr. Victoria Gray, Nourhan, Zafirah and Fusion Style with Zoe Jakes. Anabee is also a featured Belly Dancer once a month at the Middle East restaurant in Cambridge, MA. She has been a part of many local dance events, including large scale choreography as well as small venue settings all over New England. Wherever the performance, she always does her best to represent the art in its truest form.


Jacquelyn Weatherbee

Jacquelyn Weatherbee is a theatre artist and many other things local to the Boston area. She earned a BA in Theatre Performance from Salem State University and can be found doing this, that, or the other thing in and around town. She has been a featured dancer in Muse: A Theatrical Belly Dance Project and Rara Avis, both produced by ABRAXAS Dance Theatre, as well as one of the first members of Huntress, a Primal Fusion World Dance troupe founded by Zehara Nachash. Jacquelyn is a lover of stories. She seeks to expand her storytelling ability in as many directions as she can. She is so humbled by the opportunity to dance alongside Vadalna, a troupe she has admired for some time now, and is excited to see where this partnership will take her in her dance, spiritual, emotional, and theatrical lives.
