Mimi El-Ashiry started dancing at age 6. Although for years her life and career pulled her in many other directions, she decided in 2019 to switch her priorities and chase her passion, studying dance full-time for two years with the intention of improving her technical ability and facility. What she learned along the way was that it was necessary to unlearn all of these expert techniques and let go of the quest for perfection in order to find her true center as an artist, teacher, and performer. This required her to move out of her analyzing, thinking mind — and comfort zone — into a place of feeling her body. Once she started moving in ways that felt “good” or “right” but usually looked unnatural and wonderfully weird, she started to feel so free, and she realized that anyone can express themselves authentically through liberated movement.
