As a lifelong performer and artist, Michelle was first drawn to belly dance by the performances and costumes, but after her first class in the summer of 2010 she was hooked. Since then she has trained with many wonderful Northwest dance teachers and is a member of the Karavans Dance troupe. As a trained visual and fiber artist Michelle finds dance to be a way to share the joy and passion found in music through movement and costuming.

Michelle is also a costume designer. You can see her work at:
