She brings her spirited and articulate techniques to workshops, which always include material on the history and culture that generate the dances that she teaches. Artemis is a well know contributor to all of the major Middle Eastern dance publications. She has traveled extensively to 33 different countries and has researched intensively the idioms of the East, women’s issues, psychology, ancient history, oriental dance and dance ethnology. She won the "Ethnic Dancer of the Year Award" from the International Academy of Middle Eastern Dance (IAMED) and was voted the "Most Popular Ethnic Dancer" by Zaghareet Magazine.

"A superb researcher and historian as well as a lovely oriental dancer"
"Artemis is a genuine Renaiisance woman. Singer, dancer, author, and researcher. Describing her performance is like trying to catch lightening in a bottle." ---Shimmy Chronicles
"Artemis’s knowledge never ceases to amaze me…one of the best performers I have ever seen, beyond technique and skill…a projected passion, spirit and energy as she soared over the dance floor…one could almost see the energy rising out of the earth into her dance. Bravo, bravo, Artemis!" ---Zaghareet!
