Saniya began her love of dance as a young girl. She studied ballet for five years, two of those years on pointe. She also studied during that time jazz, tap, gymnastics and cheer-leading. She coached cheer-leading at a local middle school for two years before moving to Seattle Washington in 1993. It wasn't until the summer of 2016 that she became reacquainted with her love of dancing. She began her formal belly dancing studies in September of 2016 with Middle Eastern classes in Appleton, WI taught by Navah of Navah Mirage.

She began to perform as a soloist in early 2017 and by May that year she became a dancer with the Navah Mirage Troupe, later also joining Mirage Fusionistas in October 2018. Since then she has danced at several events including The Dance of the Elements performed at St. Norbert College in October 2017. Saniya is a dedicated dancer who is continuously learning and practicing. She loves learning all aspects of belly dancing from history to movements to the many props that are used to enhance this beautiful dance.
