Ansuya Rathor spent years training Bianca and certifying her in: Professional Performer Certification, Teacher Certification, Zill Master, Veil Master, Drum Certification, Sword Certification, Bellydance Fitness Fusion, and Sacred Sinuosity Bellydance Yoga.  Bianca has had the opportunity to train with many others such as Sadie, Ebony Qualls, Arish Lam, Serena Ramzy, and so many more.  Bianca loves mixing it up she is also a certified Bollyx Instructor.  Come experience the vibe!

Mission Statement: My goal is to increase awareness with a mind body, and soul by exploring the depths from which the body can move through "Belly dance" and by teaching and performing the Ancient Art of "Belly dance."

Lady Heather Nicneven

Artist and Instructor

Heather grew up in Maryland and southern Pennsylvania. She started dancing at age eight and took several years of ballet, tap, and jazz before moving into music and theater. She plays the flute and was in the marching band and pep band in high school and college. This is why she has great musical timing and can help with finding the beat and matching the musical phrasing. She returned to dance in 2002 when she became an Arthur Murray trained ballroom instructor. She continues to enjoy learning new dance styles and ways to move. In 2012 in California., the hula class she was planning to take was cancelled so she switched to belly dance and has actively pursued it since. She Community and sorority are what belly dancing encourages. Belly Dance caused her to find Burlesque and she's danced public and private performances.
In 2015, she attended her first social painting class at a Brewery and found a love for creating artwork and is an Associate Social Artworking Instructor.
She's always been a writer, keeping journals off and on since high school.
In 2021, she joined Paulette Rees-Denis in an online journaling group and has reconnected with her words.
Her desire is for everyone to find the love of dance and movement and reward themselves with goals that last a lifetime.
She holds certifications in Global Caravan Collective Soul Level One and Tribal Grooves.
