About / Bio
Nancy believes that dance is a way of finding transformation, health, joy, and community. Based in Oakland, CA, she is a certified group fitness instructor who has been performing belly dance for over a decade. In each class she demonstrates how dance is a way of discovering more about oneself. Improvisation is Nancy’s favorite way of exploring the nuances of dance, especially to live music. Her dance education began with a strong desire to understand the history and the dance as an art-form. This has led her to study many different styles of belly dance and expand her education with other styles of dance and movement. She has delighted audiences at many events in the US and recently traveled to Israel where she taught her improvisational movement format. She loves the traditional styling of Egyptian dances and the highly creative world of Tribal Fusion.

In 2014 she completed her Master’s Degree in Holistic Health Education. Her education inspired a unique perspective that she brings into her dance classes and performance.

Nancy creates dance experiences designed to help you discover joy in movement, realize your superpowers, build relationships with others on this journey, and develop a relationship that will sustain you throughout your lifetime. Every time we dance or move together we take step on the path of understanding the journey of wellness and health. I’ve designed these dance and fitness classes to help you integrate mind, body, spirit, and community. Being healthy is a whole lot more fun when you are in it with friends. Are you ready to try? There are many types of dance offerings, please explore the site and contact Nancy with any questions.
