Melissa Cristina


I had the great pleasure of attending one of Melissa Cristina’s workshops at the Sydney Middle Eastern Dance Festival this year, so I’m glad to find a clip of her to feature.

Melissa Cristina teaches and performs in Melbourne, but these days concentrates more on Samba than belly dance.  Her background includes jazz ballet, Flamenco, African, Street Latin, Brazilian Samba and Lebanese Folkloric as well as belly dancing.

She’s performing in this clip with Sydney belly dancer Jrisi.
