GRACE * POWER * JOY
Welcome to my Belly Dance Website! I live in Medford, Oregon and I teach weekly belly dance classes as well as workshops locally and internationally.
My greatest joy is seeing and supporting the transformation students make as they learn to belly dance. Belly dance class is a healthy, supportive 75 minutes of "me time" that won't make you fat, give you a hangover, or bust the budget. You will feel proud of yourself for doing something healthy, learning something new, and developing YOU with more Grace, Power, and Joy.
We can't help but become more true to ourselves, more sure and confident in who we are, as we develop the bonds between our bodies, minds, and spirits. I know that every woman has a strong, unique spirit that can be coaxed out week by week in belly dance class. Just by joining the weekly class, I see again and again women embodying the Grace, Power, and Joy of Belly Dance.
It was love at first shimmy, when I tried my first belly dance class with Asya in 1995. Since then, I have studied with everyone I could get my hips on, from southern Oregon’s Asya and Ayesha, to international stars such as (the late) John Compton, Mohammed Shahin, Aziza of Cairo, Camelia of Cairo, Marta Korzun, Mostafa Booyira, Dr. Gamal Seif, Dahlia Carella, Aziza, Hadia, Karim Nagi, Zadial Sasmaz, Shoshanna, Souhail Kaspar and Ziva Emtiyaz, Morocco, Artemis Mourat, Naheeda, Amy Sigil, Ruby Beh, Sahra Saeeda, Suhaila and Jamila Salimpour and many more. I have had level 1 certification from the Suhaila Salimpour School of Dance.
My secondary education includes degrees in Nursing, Health/PE, and Professional Writing with a focus in Creative Non-Fiction.
Most of all, I love to have fun and share my long-standing passion for Belly Dance. Experience the Grace, Power, and Joy of Belly Dance!
