A small sample of my belly dance performance. Want more? Check out my video gallery!
I started as a technical dancer skilled in jazz, ballet, tap dance, traditional belly dance and fire dance arts, but I took a gig with a Cirque du Soleil show in Japan in 1997 and had to learn aerial dance arts like aerial trapeze, Lyra (hoop) and aerial silks. In 2006 I won the Belly Dancer of the Universe Competion People's Choice Award (Fusion) and went on to create the world's FIRST magically appearing aerialist illusion in the spellbinding Circus of Illusion show with Craig Davis!
Since adding costume design and themed event entertainment solutions to my list of services in 2005, I can create simple, yet impressive shows as well as large, spectacular stage productions for corporate entertainment, fundraisers and weddings. Arabian Nights & Moroccan themed events dazzle with my pastiche of talented performers and elaborate costumes. Past clients, artists and companies I've worked with include Linkin Park, Joan Jett, ZZTop, Phoenix Zoo, Corks N Cords and Nationwide Insurance.
I've been teaching dance and fitness classes since I was 18. I worked for Gold's Gym, LA Fitness and Pure Fitness before opening my own studio, Violet Flame Studios. Since 2005, I have been offering bellydance classes, belly dance workshops, belly dance veil classes and more. My studio also features Pilates classes, self-improvement workshops, twerk classes, pole dance classes, exotic dance fitness classes geared towards making exercise an exciting and fun activity rather than a dreaded chore.
