Jenn began studying belly dance at the age of seventeen. She signed up knowing next to nothing about the movement involved or the culture behind it, and quickly fell in love with both.
She participated in classes for many years before she was asked to teach in the instructor’s absence. From that point on she has been teaching.
Jenn and her sister belly dancers — The Bodacious Bellies — part take in a hafla twice per year in the spring and fall. A halfa is a form of a party or a show. Jenn puts together a routine for these shows for all those who wish to be in the show.
Jenn believes that studying dance is a life-long process, and is always working to increase her technique and vocabulary in belly dance. She also regularly seeks out workshops and private lessons to improve upon her foundation of belly dance. Jenn has taken many workshops over the years and continually strives for growth as a dancer.
