My dance style is a fusion of Raqs Sharqi and American Tribal Style (ATS). Early on I discovered an affinity and love for props, such as veils, hoops, poi and fire fans. I still consider myself a student and am forever learning from all the wonderful dancers I’ve had the privilege to share space with.
I’ve had the opportunity to dance at the following events and festivals.
Imbolc Fire Festival. 2019
Bayou Belly Festivale 2017, 2018
Wyld Fire Beltane Hunt 2016, 2017, 2018
Drums in the Swamp 2016, 2017
I’ve taught the following workshops…
Dancing with Your Spirit Animals
This workshop combines guided meditation and trance dance. Participants are first taken on a guided shamanic journey where they meet their spirit animals and dance with them. They then return to their bodies and beginning to trance dance where they transform into the spirit animals they meet in their journey.
Dancing Your Chakras
In this workshop we discuss each of the chakras and learn which belly dance moves active each chakra. Students learn to move energy up and down the body activating and strengthen each chakra through dance.
I will be teach a new class in April at Drums in the Swamp…
Dancing with Fire Fans
This class is designed for the beginner fire spinner and fire dancer. You will learn some basic fire fan tricks and learn how to transition between them, and travel with them. We will also explore how fire fans can be incorporated into belly dance. Finally we will discuss ways to interact with the fire so that you may find your unique dance style. If you have fans please bring them, there will be a few extras for people to explore with.
