I have been dancing all of my life, but belly dancing has been my passion since 2008. I love everything about this creative lifestyle, and I love sharing it with others! I started out in Raqs Sharqi, but quickly discovered I was born to be a tribal belly dancer. I still study Folkloric and Oriental styles, but Tribal will always be my heart. Basically, I’m trying to learn everything I can, but sometimes it’s necessary to do important things like sleep.
I’m a founding member of Arkansas’s first ATS® tribe, TerraNova Tribal. In this company, I am a musician as well as a dancer. I play mostly Turkish music on the clarinet, but you’ll sometimes see me jamming out on the doumbek and djembe as well. If you’re ever in my neck of the woods, feel free to reach out!
