Dawn has over 15 years of experience instructing and performing at events across the country and specializes in ATS® and tribal style belly dance. She has received her Teacher Training level 1 and 2 certifications from Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman of Fat Chance BellyDance® and has achieved Sister Studio status. Dawn also has the honor of being selected for the first FCBD® Advanced Teacher Training in June 2015.
In addition to belly dance, Dawn has studied the Indian dance style, Kathak, and incorporates elements of this, Bharatanatyam, and dances of Rajasthan into her dance repertoire. She draws on these and other styles, influences, experience, and use of props (skirts, single and double pots, swords, fans, baskets, etc.) to create flowing, graceful choreographies and improvisations filled with beauty and life.
Dawn performs as a soloist and also as a member of Blue Moon Dance Company and the director of Dayanisma, her professional American Tribal Style® belly dance troupe. Many of Dawn’s students have gone on to perform throughout the United States and some have become instructors themselves. Dawn is also the creative director of Sunanda Tribe, World In Motion’s student tribal improvisational troupe.
Dawn lives for the dance and strives to pass on the forms and her generations of dancers. Learn more about Dawn at her website.
Dawn teaches Intermediate Tribal Belly Dance on Mondays, and Advanced Tribal Belly Dance on Saturdays. Dawn is also the creative director of Sunanda Tribe, World In Motion’s student tribal improvisational troupe.
