WHO: Study with a team of Bellyqueen Teacher Trainees!

Angie began her dance journey in 1998 with Yasmina and Isis of Kismet School in Salt Lake City, Utah, and continued her studies with Morocco in NYC. After earning her 500-hour vinyasa and yin yoga teacher certifications, Angie decided to shimmy back into dance and joined Kaeshi’s teacher training program. A resident of Montclair, NJ, Angie is a mom of four, Office Administrator at Union Congregational Church, an avid yogi, reader, and music lover- and is passionate on educating others about the benefits of staying active.
I started my discipline in martial arts, specifically Taekwondo, earning my 2nd Dan belt. Since 2008, I’ve achieved multiple fitness certifications including Personal training, mat Pilates, CoreBar, Beyond Barre and other movement modalities. My passion for movement progressed into a passion for dance which has lead me to becoming a professional Belly dance artist with over a decade of performance experience.
Valerie lives in Chesterton, IN and is a life-long dance student, but she is especially passionate for bellydance. She began her bellydance journey in her 20s, but had a break in her 30s. She found that life really does begin at 40 when she rediscovered her love of bellydance and hasn’t stopped shimmying since. She currently studies with Phaedra in Chicago and loves being a part of the fantastic community that bellydance creates. She hopes that she can share the joy that she gets from dancing with others so that everyone can know that the secret to happiness is dance.
