Taliah is passionate about the ancient and sensual art form of bellydance since it has impacted her life in a profound way. After living in the Middle East (Israel) for three years, Taliah was searching for an artistic way to stay connected to the culture and found bellydance to fulfill that need. Shortly after returning to the States, Taliah began intensive training with professional award-winning bellydance instructors that personally mentored her and molded her into the dancer she is today. Taliah is now a seasoned professional performer and instructor. Her personal bellydance style is best described as “Israeli Fusion Bellydance” yet she emphasizes traditional bellydance styles and technique in her classes. With over 10 years of formal training and performances, Taliah decided to pursue her passion to get other women involved in this empowering form of dance through offering a variety of bellydance classes such as the “Art of Bellydance” and “Cardio Belly Beats” (now available on DVD!). If you are looking for a culturally unique way to get in shape, make new friends, and explore an ancient and feminine form of dance that offers emotional healing and physical stress relief, these classes are just for you!
