Eshe is the director & owner of Mahasti – The Bellydance Emporium in Canada with classes on Zoom and Patreon. Born and raised in Hamilton, Eshe has been bellydancing since 2002. She’s trained extensively in Canada, Japan, Egypt, and Turkey. And she’s performed in America, Japan, Turkey, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia. In 2007 she launched Glitter – a bellydance showcase at The Casbah in Hamilton now taking place on Zoom!

From 2008 to 2010, Eshe was the bellydancer for the Korean band Orgeltanz. Orgeltanz and Eshe gigged at some of the country’s biggest music festivals. Together they were featured in the Korean editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and appeared on several TV programs. In 2009 she starred in Apollo 18’s music video “Orbis.” In early 2010, Eshe was cast in the Korean and Indonesian versions of Jillina’s Bellydance Evolution. Eshe also won Asia’s “People’s Choice” award as part of the show. The same year dance legend Sema Yildiz gave her the name “Yildiz” or “Star” in Turkish after she performed at the famed Gar Casino in Istanbul. 2010-2015 Eshe ran her own bellydance studio in Seoul called Dream Dance Studio. In 2012, her students won the bronze medal for Oriental Ensemble at the Tokyo International Bellydance Competition. In 2013, Eshe started a new concert series in Seoul called Shake Shop. The monthly event featured bellydancers collaborating with some of the biggest names in Korea’s indie scene.

In 2015, Eshe returned to Canada and started performing at award-winning events such as Supercrawl. In 2016, she opened Mahasti & formed Raqs Mahasti who won 1st runner up at Star Bellydancer Canada in the troupe category.
In 2017 she launched Hamilton International Bellydance Competition. In 2018 she won a 40 Under 40 Business Achievement Award for her community & charity work.
