I am a founding member of Central Texas Belly Dance Association and have assisted with events planning and public relations. I have been belly dancing for about four years. I began belly dancing to exercise and challenge myself. Before belly dance, I had never danced. I’ve discovered belly dance has become a wonderful experience that has enriched my life in so many positive ways, through the people I encounter and the wonderful learning through movement it brings me. I can’t even imagine my life without dance. It has brought great joy and fulfillment to my life experiences. The added bonus as a member of the Central Texas Belly Dance Association is I also get to do my second love – active community involvement with so many amazing, supportive professional people.
