Selecting the name for our troupe was quite a challenge. Three years ago, we got highly motivated to find the right name when someone suggested we name ourselves 'enchanted princesses' -- YIPE ! That got us motivated and we started searching 100's of name to find something that inspired us and represented what we wanted out of our dance.
We came across an arabic phrase that we thought meant dancing feet which was easy to say in English. Luckily we checked with an arabic speaker and found out that the phrase we selected actually meant --'the bottom of your foot'. Obviously, not the best thing in the world.
We'll, we kept our search going and found the name A'Diva which means 'gentle' , and we kinda liked the double meaning with being 'diva's' as well. We've lived with that name through several years together and have enjoyed every minute. We just learned, however, that there is another meaning for A'Diva and that is pleasure and pain.... Now we love our name even more -- because it truly defines who we are.
