LAYLA TAJ is a notable star Egyptian dancer. She has conquered the many genres of the entertainment industry with worldly attainment and prestige.  Born in Long Beach, New York, her journey in the performing arts began as a child.  Layla studied ballet classes at the Rockville Center Ballet Academy and the Broadway Dance Center in New York.  Her dance training began at 5 years old .Classical piano indoctrination was also part of Layla's itinerary on a daily basis. 

 
During later years,  Layla  emigrated to Germany and began seeking out workshops with the top master teachers from Cairo such as Raqia Hassan, Mahmoud Reda  and Mohammed Gadawwi. 

Shortly after her education in dance orientale, Layla was requested to perform in the Gala show at the Stockholm Belly Dance Festival in Sweden. From there her career began to accelerate. She procured several contracts to perform at five star hotels in Cairo , Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt and Dubai, UAE. Layla executed shows daily as an " in house daily performer and principal dancer " .  She was summoned to dance for Saudi royalty as well as leaders of the countries in the royal mansions on the resort grounds. Layla adjudged to continue her explorations and journeyed onto Dubai, UAE. From there she accepted a contract at the prestigious Sheraton Towers and Casino in Cairo. Upon honoring her contract, Layla was offered an additional contract in Cairo at the Semiramis Hotel  but she turned it down politely. Layla says ' I didn't want to begin my show at 2:00 am in a smoked filled room. This was not my idea of healthy living."    After five years of gathering experience in Egypt, Layla returned to the states and graced world news publications making headlines. She was given the honorific "The Dancing Queen." in several newspapers.

 

Layla then moved to Southwest Florida to enjoy the warm weather. She had the honor of performing  for what was termed "The Wedding of the Century" at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. Layla says " out of all the innumerable weddings of which I've performed in the world, I didn't anticipate the most impressive to be in Sarasota, Florida. " 

 

She also cemented a relationship with The Egyptian Tourist Authority helping them promote goodwill for Egypt by presenting her famous Egyptian cultural program.  Ambassador Youssef Zada and his wife were the VIP invites.  Her Cleopatra VII signature number created a spectacle of fans that swarmed around her.
