Stage Name: Isis
I have always been a dancer. Moving to the sounds I hear is second nature, like breathing. In the dance, I can find myself even as I lose myself in the music. My formal training began when I was 4, and Miss Robin taught me until I graduated high school (with a year off for violin lessons). Tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical. We practiced hard and came alive on stage in our annual recital.
After high school, dance was no longer a large part of my life – until I walked into Donna’s bellydance class and discovered that I was born to bellydance. The missing piece of the dance puzzle fell into place. My earlier training had given me a solid foundation, and with belly dance, I have learned to fly. Swirling around, arms out, head back, eyes closed as the music envelopes me in its intricate, layered patterns, ancient rhthyms speaking to my heart.
