Mercedes Nieto was born in the heart of Europe, Budapest, to a Hungarian-Spanish family. She has been dancing and deepening her knowledge of the Oriental Dance since 1997. She was as well studying flamenco, afro dance and jazz ballet. Up to these days she still involves herself in improving and developing her classical ballet and contemporary dance knowledge. Merging these with the traditional and contemporary Egyptian dance forms – traning and performing in Egypt continuosly – Mercedes created her own style, which is dynamic and floating, delicate and sensual, mysterious, still sincere and natural.
