Learn the art of sword, fan, and skirt dancing thru the lens of Belly dance fusion.
Mission: To create a group of community minded Belly dance enthusiasts.
If you enjoy learning, crafting, dancing, music, books, travel, and building friendships... (Belly Dance has it all)... then I want to meet you!
Originally from Nashville, TN, I have been a student Belly Dance for 10 years, performing with bands, at conventions, in festivals and music videos. I have studied a variety of styles and consider myself a fusion artist. Through weaving my love of Tribal Fusion, Folkloric, Romani Gypsy, and Latin dances, I strive to inspire students to explore the creativity within themselves and to build the confidence to share it.
In addition, I own an Etsy shop selling LeoToes dance footies. I travel the country selling my footies at Belly dance festivals and I travel regularly to Orlando and Gainesville to study with the best teachers central Florida has to offer, but alas it is not enough. I want to have a local group to share it all with. I'm not looking to create copycat minions of myself but strong creative independent women with their own style. There are so many styles and teachers of Belly dance to experience. I can teach you the basics but the rest is up to you. I believe that through Belly dance women can learn to accept and love themselves no matter their size, shape, or age. Come learn to love yourself with me.
New dancers, experienced dancers, non dancers, bad dancers, shy dancers, geeky dancers... All are welcome!
