Tell us about any belly dance experience you have. If you are new to belly dance what has drawn you to it?

I have danced in 3 belly dance ensembles over the past 15 years (Desert Caravan Dancers, MN; StellaLuna Tribal Belly Dance, Lebanon, TN, and Atlantis World Dance Company (AWDC), Nashville, TN. Some major health issues have prevented me from dancing the past several years, but I'm starting the process of healing and strengthening again. I don't need to be a full-time pro dancer at this stage in my life, but I adore the music, costuming, and movement...and how it transfixes me. I'm also a musician with primary interest in Turkish and North African folk/traditional music. I sing, play flutes, and some percussion and am the founding member of Nashville Oriental Music Ensemble (NOME).

Are you looking for a particular type of style to learn or would you like to learn more about the different types of belly dance classes offered in and around Nashville?

Folkloric, Turkish

Anything else you are hoping to find through our group?

More musicians interested in playing music from Eastern Europe, North African and the Middle East. Any/all instruments welcome, but regionally appropriate (voice, oud, saz, cumbus, kanoun, mizmar/zurna, darbuka, davul, riq, daf, ney, accordion) are ESPECIALLY encouraged!


My greatest desire is to help promote belly dance live music and dancing in Middle TN, and meet amazingly talented people along the way!
