Ananke performs at the Arts Barn Theater in Gaithersburg, MDIn ancient Greek mythology, Ananke is the personification of destiny and fate, a force even the gods and goddesses were obliged to obey.

Hello, my name is Ananke (pronounced “uh-NON-kee”) and I’m a professional performance artist and instructor specializing in both folkloric and modern interpretations of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and North African dance.  I offer classes, workshops, and live performances of an authentic art with a rich history.

You can find me in and around Frederick, Maryland. I also teach and perform at events along the East Coast and am available to a national audience through online instruction.

I look forward to sharing my passion with you. Welcome to my website!
