have been dancing since 1996, when I took my very first dance class ever.
I was hooked on belly dance that very first class, and soon found I loved
performing, as well!
All of my teachers have been wonderful, and each has taught me new skills
and styles of dance. (Special thanks Samira, Alyne, and Malia)
I love all styles of belly dance, including cabaret, ethnic, tribal, tunisian,
and more. In 2001 I won second place in the Belly Dancer of the Year Pageant. I was performing at that time in a duet called "Luminaire", with Janan.
I enjoy dancing with Zambalita, where I dance in troupe and also solo. I have choreographed many of the Zambalita dances including a new double veil peice.
