Currently teaching through the West Lafayette Parks & Recreation Department at Morton Community Center since 1995

222 N. Chauncey, West Lafayette, IN


Dance Styles: Style is predominantly American Orientale, with Egyptian, Lebanese and Turkish influences. Folkloric styles are also addressed.

Teaching Base & Methods: Beginner classes focus on basics: posture, safe dance technique, and 5 basic movement families. Other classes offer choreography, drumming and zilling, and troupe involvement. I conduct my classes based on three ideas: spreading my love of this dance to new students, teaching students to appreciate themselves for what they are — not what someone else tells them they should be, and on having fun. After all, if it isn’t fun, why would we work so hard at it?


I began belly dance at the Lafayette YWCA in 1974 with Kokomo instructor, Pat Koontz. I also studied with Charmaine of Chicago and did summer intensives with Dahlena in Evanston, as well as more seminars, workshops and week-longs than I can remember! I taught my first class in West Lafayette back in 1976 and have been in my current location at West Lafayette’s Morton Community Center since 1995. I danced with a local troupe, Raks all Sehr, for a little over twenty years. From the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s I danced at restaurants in the Indianapolis area, including The Parthenon in Broad Ripple (now out of business I believe) and The Acropolis in Southport.

Currently, I am the director of the Bare Bones Belly Dance program, part of the West Lafayette Parks and Rec offerings and of its student troupe, Troupe Oasis, since 1996. Our troupe has both a dance troupe (Oasis Dancers) and a drum group (Oasis Drums). The troupe performs at many Greater Lafayette area festivals such as Mosey Down Main Street, and in 2016 did a 1½ hour presentation at Taste of Tippecanoe festival that featured only live drumming and the oud and riq playing of Andy Smith. In the past, the troupe has done multiple appearances and events like Dancing In The Streets and Global Fest, as well as planning an annual stage show, and even doing a couple of half-time shows for the Lafayette Brawlin’ Dolls, our local flat track roller derby team.
