Omaya Ahmad
Principal Dancer - Scottsdale, AZ

Omaya, an Arizona native, developed her passion for dance and movement from an early age. Her particular technique and style is attributable to Katherine O’Connor, with whom she trained for 10 years at Scottsdale Dance Academy.


Omaya became a company member of AZDance Group after performing in a Desert Foothills Theater production with Kenda Newbury and has appeared in every one of the company's productions since its inaugural year, 2004. She is a certified Pilates instructor and also a dancer with Movement Source Dance Company.


This year she will be earning her PhD in Sustainability from Arizona State University. As she finishes up writing her dissertation, she is excited to take more of a choreographic role with AZDance Group.
