When I received my dance name from my main teacher that started me on this journey to become a belly dancer and start dancing live on stages, I didn’t know just how much my name would get passed on. My name Sohaila, means “A Star in the Sky”. Thru the years teaching I felt the need to start a dance troupe. When I was finding a name for my new troupe I didn’t have to look far. Since these beautiful dancers were stars I felt it appropriate to use my name in it, thus the Sohaila’s Shining Stars were born in 2003!
I have gone thru many dancers through out the years coming and going but one thing remains a fact, once a Shining Star, always a Shining Star.
Sohaila’s Shining Stars perform at many events throughout San Diego County
Here are our current Shining Stars:
