Fulya is Bellydance teacher, performer, costumier and event organizer, for the majority of her 16 year career this has been her full time job. She is well known as a fusion bellydance performer and constantly seeks to push boundaries and re-define her art.
Every aspect of her performance is carefully planned and constructed from concept to execution, all parts are equally important. Music choice, costume, make up and even hair style are all carefully crafted to help tell the dances story and she enjoys every part of the journey.
