I discovered bellydance back in the summer of 2005. I have studied through The Latin Ballet of Virginia, Bellydance School of Richmond, Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation and I am currently studying under Zitana (Fran Tribble). Some of my favorite International dancers and biggest influences are Ansuya, Shahrzad, Bozenka and Kami Liddle. I love all versions of the dance from the folkloric to the many fusion styles popular today.
