Mimi is one of the  first performers of oriental dances in Bulgaria.

Our big oriental dancer and choreographer Maria Birtcoeva was her idol at the time. Mimi visited Maria Birtcoeva's lessons since she was the first and only teacher then.

Mimi is inspired by this magic dance from an early age. In 1993 her big dream comes true. She is hired to dance in the first newly opened Arabian restaurant in Sofia "Oasis"-where a rich oriental program is performed. Soon Mimi gets the chance to travel and dance abroad-in Macedonia, Lebanon and Turkey. In 1997 she goes to Switzerland, where she is hired as a dancer in an Arabian restaurant in Geneva. Two years later Mimi stops dancing for some time.

In 2007 she returns to the stage. Oriental dances become an irreplaceable part of her daily round. She takes part regularly in many international festivals in Europe, Egypt and Israel and while traveling, she can take advantage of the languages she speaks. In addition to Bulgarian, Mimi speaks another 7 languages - French, English, Italian, German, Turkish, Russian and Serbian. In these countries she takes lessons and workshops with the best international teachers like Dina, Raqia Hassan, Randa Kamel, Orit Maftsir, Mo Gedawi, Momo Kadous, Mohamed Shahin, Amir Thaleb, Asmahan, Khaled Ñeif, Tito, Bozenka, Jillina, Azizza-Canada, Wael Mansour, Hassan Khalil and many more. website: where you can find also her models of bellydance costumes , because Mimi it also designer.
