When you first meet Titanya, you think of a lighthearted
fairy or a good witch, but once you get to know her, you realize there is so much more depth lurking beneath her. She is not
your ordinary belly dancer. Multi-dimensional, she dances, choreographs, performs, produces, writes, directs, makes sets and
costumes, designs posters and programs for her many elaborate shows. She is called The StoryDancer, since she is a dancer
with a beautiful magical storyteller voice that can transport the listener to exotic worlds free of stress and strife. At
the same time, Titanya gives a needed message to a room full of people, yet you will feel as if she is speaking to you and
only you and you will fall under her spell!
always thought, Entertainment is one of the greatest forms of healing and can move us out of and
through emotions and stress very quickly," says Titanya.
Titanya uses her
voice to educate people about this art form of the belly dance and also to connect them to important issues of women’s
plights throughout history, which affect us all. She feels that she has a mission to speak out for those who cannot. She brings
a conscious awareness, not through political reaction but through the imaginary world of the story.
Since 1993, she has been writing,
choreographing and producing her own one-woman shows that have received wide acclaim and rave reviews. Always striving to
bring programs that bring beauty, peace and healing to our ever-changing world, profound messages abound in her work and woman
as Goddess is revered always.
Scheherazade ~ The Veil behind the Blade, is Titanya's own modern day version of the 1001 Arabian Nights
and how a Muslim woman finds the courage and strength to save thousands of women from their fated deaths. It is the story
of a cruel king and the power of the word that a courageous woman gives him, through her healing stories. This story-drama
includes seven enchanting dances with sword balancing, a myriad of elegant veils, beautiful costumes and more.
Another Dance/Drama, The Transcendance of Inanna, where Titanya captures the audience
with mesmerizing drama, humor and graceful dance is complete with the dance of the seven veils, a unique mask dance and more.
This powerful story, originally written on clay tablets in 2500 B.C., is Titanya's own modern day interpretation of Inanna,
the Goddess of Love and War who descends to the underworld in an unforgettable journey, where meets a slew of strange and
challenging characters, guaranteed to challenge your imagination. The show is complete with middle eastern dance including
the famous mask dance and live Middle Eastern music.

is a word
and whose every move
in which I dance can be vague

In 1999, Titanya created The Goddess Dances,
an annual program with tales of the legendary Goddesses that are interpreted through movement and narration in this two-hour
multicultural performance spectacle. More than 25 dancers from cultures from around the world grace the stage in a memorable
performance spectacle. This became a popular annual sold out production.
Titanya loves working in Boulder, Colorado, where she is fortunate
to have world class musicians, in the band, Sherefe', who often assist her with many of the musical aspects of her
shows. Also, the dance scene in Boulder is very supportive of each other, which is the way this art form is supposed to be
with women. "I've been to many places in the world where the belly dance can get jaded and jealousy reigns strong."
If this isn't
enough, in her spare time, Titanya also paints murals, is a children's entertainer, and assists her world re-known mother,
Donna Eden, in most of her national and international Energy Medicine workshops with her own very popular movement
form called Energy Dance. Titanya’s
Energy Dance DVD has been sold to thousands of enthusiasts all over the world.
Titanya hopes to complete the companion Energy Dance DVD in the 2007-2008 time periods and will
begin working on a frequently requested program to train certified instructors in the Energy Dance phenomenon. Titanya’s
other movement DVD, Energy of the Poi has also been very popular to a national and international audience. All of her DVDs are available on her website shopping pages.
