improvisation during it's boom. I learned so much from Teresa. The thing I admire most is how she tells stories with her movements. I owe that evolution in my dancing to her.
The year was 1993 when my best friend and I stumbled upon a book "The Complete Belly Dancer". The moment I saw Marta Schill I knew this was the kind of woman I wanted to be. I began my studies with Suzanne Armetta at a YMCA. I was extremely awkward and obnoxious but she taught me AmCab and the importance of sequins. Her style was very late 1970's. I'll always represent that flair.

Are you a beginner-mediate dancer looking to learn a solo tribal-style choreography? This is a great download for that! I built a full song choreo to Djinn's "Brooklyn Baladi". I even play the zills for you to practice along. DOWNLOAD
I really enjoy visiting different dance communities and I offer a variety of workshops (Vintage to ITS). My diverse dance background offers a unique class experience and my positive personality encourages dancers to let go and enjoy learning.
