Ayako Date is the illustrator of my new book "The Bellydancing Kitties of Constantinople". In addition to being an accomplished artist, she is a Persian dancer and Oriental dancer. (See her bio)
"Ayako’s childhood was full of arts; drawing, crafting, playing violin and dancing.
She graduated from the Kyoto Zokei Arts University where she majored in Japanese painting.
She spent the following ten years as a bead designer. She discovered bellydancing, and studied with Leilaa Hiromi, then traveled to Shanghai, China to study with Tamalyn Dallal.
Now Ayako teaches bellydance in Kyoto, Japan. She is an accomplished Persian dancer as well, and has performed in Shanghai, New Orleans, and Havana, Cuba. Her art work adorns clothing and bags in Japan and she drew the logo for Tamalyn Dallal’s " Dancing Our Way Home" project."
Ayako will be performing at the book release concert at the Marigny Opera House on April 19, then teaching this workshop/class at Pashas Palace the following day.
