Her dance act incorporates belly dance and contemporary ballet. She trained in both styles starting at a young age and enjoys sharing her craft with the community. Her lessons vitalize students’ spirits and release tension through flowing movements of self-expression. Her drills engage the body to train in traditional techniques with a focus on correct hip placement while strengthening core and back muscles safely. Cabaret and tribal dance styles are covered in her exciting and culturally immersive class where students always leave with a combination or choreographed piece.
