Amina Goodyear began her performance career in the mid-60’s at the Bagdad Cabaret dancing nightly in San Francisco’s North Beach district during that city’s golden era of Middle Eastern dance and until the Arabic clubs closed in that area.
In that era, dancers worked and supported themselves (and their families) solely by dancing. She continued working in clubs in San Francisco as well as nearby cities as the Arab population moved to the suburbs.
She founded her dance company, The Aswan Dancers, in 1975, celebrating over 40 years of continuous performance and entertainment
