Fahtiem brings a touch of class to Oriental Dance, as well as a delightful sauciness, making her not only a grand entertainer, but an artist as well. It's no wonder that as a performer, teacher, and choreographer, she is so in demand." - Ibrahim Farrah, Publisher, Arabesque Magazine
Fahtiem has performed throughout the United States, including engagements on cruise ships and performances on cable and network TV. Her love and commitment to the dance is evident in her efforts to motivate each dancer to their individual best. It has been said that "Fahtiem truly has a master's touch. The simplest movement is presented with incredible focused energy. The quality of Fahtiem's movements is what we all strive for." Her style is soulful and dynamic. Her movement expressive and clear. On stage her ability to reach and entertain an audience with warmth and humor is delightfully apparent. As a teacher Fahtiem conveys not only solid form and technique, but the subtle nuance that makes this dance magical.
