Heather is an LA based dancer, teacher and choreographer. She defines her bellydance as an organic movement integrating classic dance form with pure, heart rooted creativity. Heather is inspired by life's many sources. She believes dance has the power to heal, awaken and delight body and spirit.
Heather's work has included educating and performing in private schools, retirement homes, private parties, children's birthday parties, corporate environments, film and TV sets, farmer's markets, street fairs and other community events.
Heather has been studying movement since she can remember. Her path started early in gymnastics, cheerleading, jazz, modern and hip-hop dance. She also dabbles in ballet, classical Indian, African dance and tai-chi. She has studied bellydance in Egyptian, Turkish and American Tribal styles.
Choreography has been a love and present in Heather's life for many years, from shows for mom and dad, to high school half-times, to a short independent film, to stage/theatre productions.
She also has a very powerful connection with healing and has been involved in bodywork since 1998. Heather maintains a private healing practice in which she utilizes knowledge of massage, Reiki, aromatherapy, herbology, movement and diet to facilitate optimum health. She encourages self-healing.
In 2007 Heather won Belly Dancer of the Universe Tribal Fusion Solo Champion and People's Choice and the Hips of Fury Ultimate Soloist and People's Choice.
