Bozenka meaning, “touched by God”, is the auspicious birth name of this world-renowned performer and master teacher whose gift for the art of belly dancing
transcends her Cuban-Czech heritage. She has enthralled diverse audiences all over the globe while inspiring every performer that has had the good fortune to witness her style and grace live and in colour. Her distinguishing elegance and her classic, earthy technique has elevated Bozenka to superstar status. Charismatic yet unpretentious sheis globally loved and admired as one of the most sought out instructors in the art of belly dancing. A mentor for many aspiring dancers, she has motivated many of her students to pursue this ancient art form as a profession. As an entrepreneur, Bozenka owned/ directed her own world class studio in Miami, Florida – Bozenka’s Bellydance Academy – known as the premier Belly Dance school in all of South Florida. She has recorded several best selling instructional and performance DVDs and has toured extensively with the celebrated “Bellydance Superstars” as a featured soloist.

In 2006, Bozenka brought home the coveted golden crown from the “Ahlan Wa Sahlan” dance festival in Cairo, Egypt where she was among 150 dancers from all over the world to compete for this honour. This glorious achievement was seen worldwide on CNN, which broadcasted the event with the title, “An American Belly Dancer has taken the Egyptian crown!” In a pivotal moment in her then young career, the prestigious title “Miss America of the Belly Dance” was bestowed upon her in 2000 as she emerged as the stellar performer of this national event.

Bozenka instructed and choreographed international superstar Shakira for her “Mongoose” world tour in 2004 and more recently for her 2010 tour launched in September, working with the pop diva side by side to help her hone and polish her innate skills. She performed on stage with world-music artist, “Albina” during her concert tour in Miami Beach in 2005. Bozenka has entertained an assortment of celebrities including Sean Connery, Donald Trump, Hugh Hefner, Madonna, Alejandro Sanz and Enrique Iglesias amongst others.

In 1998, Bozenka began her training at the Mid-Eastern Dance Exchange under the tutelage of legendary dancer/teacher Tamalyn Dallal. Her natural artistic abilities and her exquisite physical attributes helped her quickly become Dallal’s star pupil. Bozenka went on to become creative director of the school and subsequently turn into owner when Dallal graciously handed her the academy upon moving from Miami. She continued with that legacy providing the most professional and well-rounded education of this ancient dance in South Florida at Bozenka’s Belly Dance Academy. Her student base grew to global status and is currently traveling worldwide to educate and inspire dancers everywhere.

Bozenka is one of today’s leading exponents of the bellydance art form. Her special teaching technique and her wonderful spirit make her workshops/performances a fulfilling and motivating experience for all who attend. An exemplary artist and role model, Bozenka continues to set her standards higher with each performance and workshop.
