I am so happy that you are considering inviting such a beautiful and wondrous art into your lives. Belly Dance is my passion and I feel so blessed to be able to share it with others. For those of you pursuing beginning Belly Dance, you are about to embark on a life changing, exciting journey that will enhance your life greatly. For those of you who have been dancing for a while already, I congratulate you on your devotion.
Women have always enjoyed dancing together, from the farthest points in history to right here today in classrooms and stages all over the world. Being such a centered and ﬂowing form of movement, Belly Dance is a sure way to connect with yourself and other women in your community. I ﬁnd it to be an incredibly transformative and healing art that takes me to exactly where I need to be in mind, body and spirit.
My intention as an instructor is to create a safe and nurturing environment for women to come together and learn to Belly Dance and create wonderful memories. I am devoted to guiding you in a positive and gentle way on your dance journey.
