Davis-White Explain Origins of Their Gold Medal-Winning Olympic Program

Ice Dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White Compete for Olympic Gold Today

I was fortunate enough to have been a consultant on the Free Dance program “Scheherazade” performed by Meryl Davis and Charlie White. They are in the final competition today on NBC at 10AM EST – and they are gearing up to take the Gold. Proud that they are Michigan-based and proud that belly dance has had an opportunity to influence an Olympic sport.

Public Classes No Longer Available… Inquire for Private Lessons and Workshops

After a year at FAB Music and Dance School, I will no longer be teaching public classes until further notice.

I am so grateful for the opportunity FAB has provided for me to teach classic styles of Raqs Sharqi and provide some Middle Eastern dance education along with dance training – something that is rare these days in the bellydance world. The students that have dedicated their time and energy are the fuel that kept me going – literally. I feel privileged to have exchanged dance experiences with them all as they taught me alot and it brightened my week to spend time with them. Stay tuned to what’s happening at FAB School as they undergo major changes for progress in early 2014!
