Irina Daliya Shevchenko was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. Since her father was a master of sport of tennis, from the very childhood Irina had been prepared for the professional sports. At the age of 4, she began playing tennis professionally and made huge strides. But when she was 9 years old, her family moved to Russia, Rostov-on-Don and Irina was forbidden to continue professional sports because of her back problems. But as Irina was always hyperactive child and to keep her in one place was very difficult so at the age of 14 she was fascinated by dances, but not for a long time. Firstly it was a sports rock ’n’ roll, then hip-hop and pop dance, and then ballroom dancing. And only in 2005, when she accidentally took classes on Arabic dance her life turned in 180 degrees. She fell in love with belly dancing and Irina decided to leave everything she had worked before and from 2007 she started to engage in oriental dance professionally and build a career as a dancer and as a teacher. Over 7 years of hard work, endless competitions, master classes she never stopped even falling and rising danced because Irina is madly in love with such a beautiful and feminine dance which lives in her and now she even cannot imagine herself without it! Irina Daliya Shevchenko studied with the famous teachers of Russia, Egypt and other countries, took 100 workshops and now she is not going to stop because she believes there is no limit to perfection! Over all these years she has participated in more than 50 Russian and international festivals, as well as she is the owner of more than 70 awards of belly dance. But her biggest reward is the ability to live on the stage at each moment, getting incredible pleasure of dancing, enliven every move and fill it with tremendous energy! Irina is one of the brightest performers of oriental dance, she is an oriental beauty queen who really found herself in a life and she does her real favorite thing. Nowadays she is also the organizer of the brightest shows such as "Charmed of the Orient", "Harem" which take places in Rostov-on-Don, as well as the International Festival "Goddess of the Orient."
