Moria Chappell travels across the globe performing and teaching the exquisite art of Tribal Fusion bellydance.
Beginning her dance career in Atlanta, GA in 2001 with Awalim Dance Company, Moria moved to San Francisco in 2005 to study with The Suhaila Dance School, and was invited to join The Suhaila Dance Company and Bal Anat, from which she learned the extreme muscle control and isolation fundamental to her current style.
That same year she was invited to join The Bellydance Superstars and thus her world travels began. In 2007 Moria taught 30 workshops in over 8 different countries and, via The Bellydance Superstars, performed in more than 15 countries worldwide.
By 2008 Moria began traveling to Thailand and India to deepen her understanding of yoga, Thai, and Odissi dance.
Now, in 2014, Moria has taught and performed in virtually every major city in the world. She continues her Odissi dance and spiritual studies by traveling to India annually and by studying with Dr. Ratna Roy weekly.
