I have studied under several different teachers, including Helené, Gabrielle, Palika, Malia de Felice, Yolanda and Sabiba, each with their own unique style, and have danced with several troupes.I currently dance with Troupe Zambalita in troupe and solo.

I am presently a teacher at Community Street Jam studio in Redwood City, where I help my students with belly dance technique and teach many of my original choreographies. I am troupe director of the CSJ student troupe 'Raks Jawhara' .

Dancer - Choreographer - Troupe Director of Raks Jawhara.

At 4 years old took ballet classes and this started my life long love of dance. In 1993, after trying many different dance forms I discovered Middle Eastern dancing.

Dancing, choreographing and teaching belly dancing has been my passion ever since. Middle eastern music speaks to my soul and transports me to another world. I love all aspects of this evolving dance form.
