“I dance and the world dissolves into the wholeness it always was!”
"I vividly remember when highland dancing at fair and looking at the belly dancers with a sort of aw, thinking 'I could never learn do that!' But when an ankle injury grounded me I decided why the heck not, and gave it a try. It took a while to loosen up years of ridged training but I've had a blast from my very first class."
Moira's focus is in Tribal Style Belly Dance. She currently dances with Zaltana and is a former member of Aziza Said's Fringe Elements.
My love affair with dance started at the age of three when my mother enrolled me in ballet, tap and tumbling at the Betty May Dance Studio in San Francisco. Although my first love was ballet, being Greek, I journeyed into Greek folk dancing and then into belly dancing. Always the "chubby one," I soon learned that the size of one's body had nothing to do with the ability to dance and had everything to do with the size of one's heart. Dance is merely allowing our hearts to speak. I am honored to be a member of the Desert Belly Dance Collective – a group of remarkable women who share the vision of creating a space in which members are enabled to tap into their creativity. I am also thrilled to be a member of the Zaltana dance troupe. I welcome you to join me in this next step of my journey.
