Originally from St. Louis, Swan has been a fan of dance her entire life.  Swan became interested in bellydance after seeing a performance of the talented Rachel Brice with Bellydance Superstars.  Her earthy and snake like movements were simply mesmerizing and showed a different form of bellydance that Swan had never seen before.  She decided right then that she would like to take lessons.

Luckily, in 2007, Swan saw the talented Ami Amore’ perform and loved her style of dance.  After her first class with Ami, Swan was addicted and has been apart of the wonderful Exotic Rhythms Bellydance troupe ever since.

Swan is truly in love with bellydance and strives improve her dance skill.  Swan has been influenced by many different talented dancers, including Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Ariellah and of course, Ami Amore’.  Her bellydance style can be characterized as more of a tribal fusion style with hints of a hip hop and gothic flare.

Swan’s motto is, “When all else fails…. SNAKE ARMS!”
