About Sandy Maya
Artist - Dancer - Photographer - Model - Choreographer - Teacher and Youtuber
Inspired by nature and my love for life makes me want to create and express myself in any way I can.
Starting off posing in front of the lens as a Model back in 1999 opened the door to photography in 2004. I use it to express myself artistically as well a creating stock photography.
I have always danced. As a child and teenager I did folkloric dance as well as Ballet and jazzdance. My passion for dance took over when I seemed to have found the dance style I did not know I was looking for. I started taking bellydance lessons with the SMBA in 2011. I began spending more time choreographing and performing and began to appreciate the traditional oriental dance music.
As the bellydancing filled most of my spare time, I underwent a teacher apprenticeship with the SMBA in January 2015 and I began teaching bellydance under the RBSB in September 2015, shortly after creating my Bellydance youtube channel. I am currently coaching beginner and improver students at the SMBA as well as teaching my own classes at Sandy Maya's Bellydance.
In 2013 I started discovering my love to paint. Topics I choose to paint are very often inspired by my own photography and my love for dance and the fact that I grew up by the sea.
Because of my many interests I figured that I should simply be a Freelance Artist in every way I feel the need to express myself.
That's what makes me happy :)
