Chit Chat

Whew! It's over and I can finally start thinking about something else! What a fun weekend.
All the dancers in the Pro Tribal Category were a-m-a-z-i-n-g....Ayperi from Wisconsin, Megan Hartmann from Missouri, Susan Warner from Illinois, Mae from Chicago, Jezminda from Illinois....are fabulous dancers. What is even better is that we all have very different and distinct styles...truly tribal fusion. Thank you ladies for inspiring me to work harder!

Ayperi-1st Place
Megan/Eliza - 2nd Place
Susan-3rd Place

A special thanks to those in the audience who voted me as People's Choice winner! Love ya!

about me
I remember seeing my first bellydance performance with Fat Chance Bellydance in San Francisco in 1997 and I've been hooked ever since. I was initially attracted to American Tribal Style (ATS) because I loved the idea of dancing, connecting and interacting with a group of women, and since I'm a bit on the shy side, this style continues to suit me. I'm a member of the Chicago Tribal Troupe Jezebelly ~ ~ with my two closest friends, Jessy and Jessica. We have been dancing together for about 10 years and enjoy the unique friendship that working creatively together can bring.
I also enjoy teaching tribal and have weekly classes at Arabesque Studios in Chicago ~ I have a fabulous group of women in my Advanced Class who make up the budding ITS troupe BellyRing.
Lately I have been dipping my toe into solo work....a completely different beast from group ITS....but enjoying spreading my bellydance wings and sharpening my chops!
