Wild Anima is a global destination for oriental dancers looking to immerse in the wildly beautiful and soulful art of the orient.

Hunting down fantastic beats, mesmerizing performances and the latest events around the world is my passion. I hope to provide a bit of magic to your week with folkloric stories, expert interviews, tips, tricks, and more.

About Me

I am a writer, illustrator, and belly dancer, based in Switzerland. Following my 18-year career in artistic gymnastics, I was drawn to the raw, sensual nature of this ancient art. My passion for uncovering the rich stories behind each dance continues to inspire my travels. I started this blog in 2016 to share my passion for oriental dance and create a global community of fellow belly dance enthusiasts.
