Desert Roses Belly Dance

(Founded in 2009)

 

 

石毓,英文名 Lily Shi , 原籍中国陕西。1999 年毕业于上海交通大学材料与科学系。毕业后在上海化工机械一厂任职厂长助理和翻译工作。工作一年后获得新加坡国立大学的硕士奖学金,即赴新于 2000 年 9 月开始攻读工程硕士学位。在读书和科研过程中,论文曾在国际期刊发表。 2002 年在完全没有舞蹈基础的情况下开始接触并学习肚皮舞和莎莎舞蹈,立即被这些舞蹈的热情吸引折服。 2003 年获得博士学位奖学金 , 开始攻读工程博士学位,也正是在这期间,她的兴趣彻底发生了巨大的转移,她不仅在校期间积极参加社团活动,协助国大研究生联合会推广拉丁舞莎莎舞, 并且于 2005 年在国立大学 PGP 学生宿舍区教授国际大学生肚皮舞和莎莎舞,并在国大 PGP 宿舍区新年庆祝会上多次表演。

2005 年获得她获得国大工程硕士学位,同时博士生休学,为了追求自己热爱的肚皮舞事业,她放弃了博士学位。这之后她积极发展自己的肚皮舞表演事业,多次参加新加坡各大公司的庆祝表演活动,以及各种慈善表演活动,并协助一家澳洲员工培训公司在东南亚及新加坡长期的表演和培训事业。与此同时,她也协助发展新加坡中东鼓的推广和表演事业,积极促进新加坡,台湾,大陆,香港,澳门等地的舞蹈老师们及手鼓爱好者们的艺术交流。除了参与经新加坡国家艺术部批准的学校文化推广表演节目,在新加坡几十所大中小学进行中东音乐和舞蹈表演,她表演的足迹也遍布新加坡的美国国际学校,加拿大国际学校等。 她还培训 UWC 国际学校的学生们为其校世界艺术节呈现肚皮舞,把东方文化的精萃带给国际学生们。

国际文化交流方面,早在 2005 年她就赴土耳其和以色列进修肚皮舞,与当地著名的肚皮舞表演家和手鼓家交流切磋。 2007 年她也参与了新加坡 APSARA  ASIA 艺术团在澳洲布里斯本的诗歌节表演。 2008 年她也受邀在以色列为当地幼儿园表演,受到当地观众的一致好评。 2009 年开始,她积极接洽中国,促成中东鼓乐师在中国厦门进行中东鼓培训, 2010 年也成功邀请了新加坡的肚皮舞大师在中国厦门进行专业肚皮舞表演,使得中国的舞蹈者们有机会获得正宗的中东音乐和舞蹈熏陶和教学。

 

2009 年 9 月开始,她决心扩大业务,把肚皮舞教学事业开发出来,为已经成熟和受到广泛好评的表演事业再添佳绩。 她创立了新加坡沙漠玫瑰肚皮舞工作室,开始把肚皮舞向新加坡的广大居民包括新移民推广,倡导大众包括新移民形成健康的生活方式,并积极参与新加坡的文化活动,促进新加坡本地人和来自全世界的新移民们的交流和融入。在向新加坡居民包括新移民推广肚皮舞健身和艺术的过程中,她极大促进了新移民积极的融入新加坡社会。同时她也积极推广中国文化在海外的影响。

早在 2005 年间,她的事迹就在新加坡各大报刊广泛报道, 2009 年开始,她也多次受邀上新加坡新传媒电视节目如 “ 焦点 ”, “ 早安您好 , 综艺 Go Live 和 " Hooked on Huayu” 等,作为活跃在新加坡艺术界,积极主动的融入新加坡社会的外国人典型接受采访,鼓励新移民以一颗欣赏,学习,宽容,进取的心积极融入新加坡社会,在新加坡安居乐业。她所倡导的, 是女性应该受益于肚皮舞,体验肚皮舞艺术对女性身心启迪的强大影响, 从而在生活中不断追求对生命的理解,和对健康美好生活乐此不疲的不断向往。
