Biography

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 of Belly Dance since 2004, performing with bands, at conventions, in festivals and music videos. I have studied a variety of styles and consider myself a Modern Folkloric dancer. Through weaving my love of Troupe Improv, Egyptian, Folkloric, Romani, Persian, Flamenco, and Latin dances, I strive to inspire my students to explore the creativity within themselves and to build the confidence to share it.

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 dancers 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!
