Ariellah - Fusion Bellydance Teacher
Ariellah studied classical ballet with the Royal Academy of Dance of London for twelve years, beginning at age three. After a four-year break from dance that included two years in the Peace Corps on Africa's Ivory Coast, she returned to the United States eager to learn the dance of her Moroccan ancestry, belly dance. Ariellah is an international performer and instructor of modern fusion belly dance. She has studied and performed belly dance since 2001. Ariellah began her belly dance training with Janine Ryle of Danse Mahgreb and as a founding member of The Indigo with Rachel Brice. Most recently Ariellah began training in classical Indian Odissi dance, studying in India at the Shakti School of Dance, in 2009. Her style infuses many genres of belly dance, all with a modern dark flavour that is uniquely her own. She is featured on many DVDs, including the first of its kind "Gothic BellyDance" DVD and her first instructional DVD, "Contemporary BellyDance and Yoga Conditioning" and she also won first place in Siren's Insanity belly dance competition in 2004. Ariellah is considered a leader and innovator in the genre of Fusion Belly Dance and is known for her strong technique, precision of movements, passion and her artistry... In 2004, she began to infuse the depth of theatre, emotion and storyline into her fusion belly dance performance art. She also began using non-traditional music in her performance pieces and classes... Ariellah is currently based in Oakland, CA or the bay area, but mainly teaches globally, around the world... She also is the sole producer of an annual Dark Performance Art Event called ShadowDance, that began in 2007, and features all types of different performance art, sometimes exposing performance art from the underground subculture that the public has not seen before...It is a feast for the eyes and the soul and so Ariellah coordially invites you to attend if ever you find yourself in the bay area in early November... Ariellah is passionate about this art form and is a dedicated teacher and forever a student, always learning and growing and gives everything of herself to her art...and this art form...   Contact E-mail: Official Website: Facebook Page:
