Hi there, I’m a Bellydance teacher and performer based in Los Angeles!
I began belly dancing at the age of twelve with Tracy Windisch at the School of Performing Arts and Cultural Education in Ukiah California. At age 14 I joined her company Troupe Sattya who performed in festivals, private parties, and shows in Northern California including Health and Harmony, Sol Fest, and Tribal Fest.
Since my teacher came from the Suhaila Salimpour studio, I am a third generation student of her style which is a fusion of Cabaret and tribal belly dance. This school of technique teaches the methodical discovery of specific muscles as a foundation in order to isolate and layer movements in a precise and healthy manner. I also have training in modern, ballet and jazz technique.
Performed at birthday parties and local restaurants including L’Ambiance, Eden Garden, The Palace, DeLounge, and Koutoubia.
Choreographed Arabian Nights for the School of Dramatic Arts
My first class with Devon was amazing. She is very patient and pleasant. I was impressed with her knowledge and is a great teacher. I am looking forward to my next class.
