Michelle

Seattle Bellydancer

Charismatic – captivating – playful – quirky – enchanting!

Enjoyed for her enigmatic mix of approachability, classic glamour and geeky humor, Michelle has been entrancing audiences since 2010. At first drawn to belly dance by the exquisite costumes and mesmerizing performances, Michelle became truly hooked on the art form after taking her very first class, and continues her training with many of the legendary performers of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Michelle brings her Egyptian-inspired, American Cabaret-influenced eclectic style to the stage, presenting classic and modern raks sharqi along with audience-pleasing folkloric favorites such as saidi, beledi, shaabi, khaleegi and more. She performs both as a soloist and as a member of the Karavans Dance Troupe. Michelle feels that her extensive background and training in visual and fiber arts and current training in the Feldenkrais Method give her a unique perspective through which she can share the joy and passion found in movement to music.
