"I began my dance journey at 4 - Ballet, Modern Dance, Mid East Oriental Belly Dance path way. It is wonderful to study as many dance forms as possible. You can't take training out but you can add layers of expression. I never thought I would become a Belly Dancer. Many first time students fall in love with the dance. I did. I love to learn, perform & teach .
Dancing a Veil, skirt, studying the rhythms and learning to play finger cymbals adds much to a dancers repetoire.
