"It inspires you to happily exercise without feeling the ‚Äėburden‚Äô of exercise. It helped me bring my sexy back after having 7 surgeries in 2 years. I didn‚Äôt think that was possible."

As women, we're often taught to compete with each other, to compare our bodies, our careers, our relationships‚ÄĒand not just with each other either, but with unreasonable expectations.


It's time to come together and reclaim our power.

Frequently Asked Questions

Count Me In!

You can feel powerful and safe, no matter what you've been through.

Belly dance was passed down in East Africa through generations of women in my family‚ÄĒcelebrating our sensuality in uniquely feminine spaces.
I started teaching belly dance to people of all ages and backgrounds when I was in college, and I dreamed of sharing it with the world‚ÄĒuntil a bullet stopped me in my tracks. I was shot in the leg with an assault rifle in a random attack at age 21.
My recovery was grueling, and even though I thought my dancing days were over, it was belly dance ‚ÄĒ with significant accommodations ‚ÄĒ that helped me get back on my feet again.
Now I share belly dance as both a skillful, sensual dance, and as a way to rebuild passion, strength, resilience, and community‚ÄĒno matter what you've survived.
