Why bellydance? I work out a lot, but I've found that bellydance gives me a different way of both challenging my body and appreciating my body.
How long have you been at Saffron? A little over 6 years.
How did you find Saffron Dance, and what keeps you coming back? I had taken ballet casually when I was a child, and I wanted to get back into that. When I started with BalletNova, they were in the midst of moving their studio and were renting space from Saffron. I'd come to my ballet classes and see the bellydance classes going on and think, "That looks like fun too!" I keep coming back because as much as I love bellydance, I love the people at Saffron even more. I originally moved to the D.C. area for a job and thought it would be a short-term stay and I'd be on my way soon. For various reasons, I've ended up staying in the area far longer than I'd anticipated. Still, it never felt like "home". Then I found Saffron. Saffron and my wonderful friends there make this place home.
