My Story

My passion for dance comes from a family connection, growing up in my brother’s dance studio.

I later discovered Middle Eastern dance in college, and it became my world. I listened to the music non-stop. I took all the classes and workshops I could get my hands on. I'd study every style I could. Next thing I knew, I was teaching, and putting on shows with my own student troupe. 

One day, we were invited to open for a fire show.  I was dazzled by the flames and grew to be a part of the act.
