Ukrainian Bellydance Beauty: Alla Kushnir (Leila)

Alla, on the stage, is, if I may say so, one big emotion. Dance is a dance; technique is a technique; but the strategy, tactic, and the most important “shock” weapon of the beautiful dancer is the feeling, the passion she puts into each movement. Despite her youth, Alla is the winner of numerous international and foreign competitions and championships. There is no doubt that all those titles are well deserved.

Alla Kushnir. This girl, as well as Kseniya Simonova, is known all over Ukraine thanks to the show “Ukraine’s Got Talant”. Finally, many people have known about her in Ukraine because, previously, she had been known only in Middle East countries. By the way, in Middle East, people take the girl as if she was born there because her belly dance style is perfect. There she has another name – Leila. This name is also often used by her family in Ukraine as well. Dancer had a possibility even to dance before the Arab Sheikh. Her technique was also valued by the members of the jury “Ukraine’s Got Talent’ and Ukrainians. As the result, she became a finalist of this show.

Nowadays, Alla Kushnir (Leila Kushnir) is a finalist and winner of the prestigious competitions. She is “Miss Bellydance of Europe 2008, Berlin”, 3rd place winner of LBC (Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation) World Belly Dance Championship “Hezzi Ya Nawaim” 2008, winner of Ukrainian Belly Dance Championship 2007&2008, 2nd winner of Moscow International Belly Dance Championship 2007, etc.

this is lebanese music, and the tv channel also is a lebanese one! even the ukrainian dancer looks very much like oriental women!!

i still want to add that best belly dancers in the arab world are the onces from eastern europe, russians, romanians, ukrainians.. they mix their talents in ballet with the belly dance, which makes a very nice kind of art.. while egyptian belly dancers for example do that without any art!! its just moving their bellys and behinds!!

I have never seen nor have I been mesmerized by any dancer as I have been with Alla(Leila)Kushnir. All I applaud you.

Alla is very talented, but is very interested in showing off. Thats where dance is less about actually dancing. Any style that becomes too busy for the sake of showiness, loses meaning. I have to respectfully disagree…she may have talent, but she has no soul. Her passion stems from pleasing a panel, not connecting with the music. Its sad.
