New Year, New Projects

The year is winding down, and what it year it has been!  I moved to Chicago, Illinois, met a bunch of new people, and gigged my little hips right off!

One of the great things I did this year was star in a music video.  This was a great honor for me.  Please check out the video below, or on my Video page. A note: this is not a belly dance video! I studied martial arts for over 13 years of my life, and this performance is a sword dance based on that experience, not belly dance!

This next year is looking to be the best one yet regarding belly dance for me.  In case you didn’t know, I will be performing in many shows this year, starting already the first week of January!  Please check out my Calendar to see when and where I will be performing.

At the end of January, I will be presenting my workshop, Killer Isolations, at Something Tribal This Way Comes.  I was honored to be among those picked to present my workshop.  Please sign up here if you are interested.  If you want to find out more about the workshop, click here.

I will also be returning to my Secret Project! I had to let it slide this past year, unwillingly, due to time and other commitments.  But this year it will happen, so stay tuned to the website for more information!

Have a safe holiday season, and see you next year!
