If you enjoy learning, crafting, dancing, music, books, travel, and building friendships... then I want to meet you!

Originally from Middle Tennessee, I have studied BellyDance since 2004, performing with bands, at conventions, in festivals and music videos. Through weaving my love of Troupe Improv, Egyptian, Folkloric, Romani, Persian, Flamenco, and Latin dances, I hope to connect dancers together through the language of movement. There are so many styles and teachers of BellyDance to experience. I can teach you the basics but the rest is up to you. I believe that through BellyDance, people can learn to accept and love themselves no matter their size, shape, or age. Come learn to love yourself with me.

New dancers, community dancers, non dancers, bad dancers, shy dancers, geeky dancers... All are welcome!

Certifications I have completed:

  • Certified Level 1 Teacher of Global Caravan Dance (GC Style)
  • Certified Global Caravan Dance Grooves Instructor
  • Dance Cohesion Stage 1 Teacher
