All of creation moves.
Through the development of precision within our movement, we refine our communication with everything.
Whether developing choreography, improvising or simply warming up, I believe our motion holds the power to unwind trauma, process emotions, channel prayer, manifest our reality and ignite our intuition to bring greater harmony.
Honor your life with the gift of dance.

The Derivation of my Dancing:
Dance reflects the movement of all life, therefor it holds a level of pure compassion through the recognition of each individual’s movement process. With deep surrender to the wisdom of our body, miraculous healing transformation can occur. Fundamental techniques can hold a strong container for us to soften into this intuitive space, create common languages to cultivate alignment with one another and promote greater sustainability through providing structural integrity as we integrate new ways of moving. May this practice hold a balance of strength and grace as we give and receive creative energy.
I dance through life as a facilitaor of artistic and therapeutic movement. Training in various techniques for over 20 years and spending thousands of hours refining my gifts in this way has brought me to study, teach, and perform locally, nationally and internationally throughout my years of development. As a “fusion” dancer, I have refined a taste within the bountiful buffet of dance flavors includeing various forms of Belly Dance, Hip Hop, Modern, Ballet, Jazz, Acrobatics and Flow Arts. My passion motivates the continued education and integration of many fine art forms from around the world into my craft. A foundation of yogic principles, ceremonial practice, earth work, and the influence of internal martial arts, keeps me rooted with the intention to offer nourishment to feed the hunger that heals, and connect us to our most authentic, vital expression.

“ Violet’s class series are a transformative journey into self discovery and the common thread that unites us all. With deep reverence for the earth, the cycles, connection, intuition and being in reciprocal relationship to all. She holds an incredible container that not only teaches you dance, it unlocks keys within yourself that open up parts of you wishing to be free and untamed. Those keys open up deep listening to divine guidance of dance, surrendering to body’s intuitive dance, and freedom to express. Thank you Violet for bringing us all together heal and journey through the temple of dance.”
Violet understands that dance isn’t merely about technique and performance but also, and most importantly, about life. When you take a class with Violet you are learning, or perhaps remembering, the dance of life. You are learning how to integrate movement into healing, ritual, and self-expression in a container that Violet very intentionally curates that is safe, sacred and transformative.
“Give thanks that Violet has discovered within her heart, how to bring her gifts of transformation to the world. Give thanks that she invites participation into this field. Give thanks for the way she guides hearts and bodies through this journey. I feel her love came into my life in the perfect timing, in the perfect way. Thank you for the work you do to align yourself with truth and love and making yourself available to those desiring to be transformed.”
“Violet’s passion and energy lights up the classroom! Her capacity as an instructor allows for her to meet the dancing needs of all levels of experience. Her style is unique and full of her own personal flavor, encouraging and welcoming of others to bring there full and authentic selves into the movement!”
“I have been taking Tribal Fusion Belly Dance, Hip Hop Class with Violet for two months now. What a great investment this has been for me!
There are so many reasons that I love taking her classes and would recommend them. Every class is energetic, athletic and kinesthetic. I look forward to each week to move my body and get a good work out! Violet has a very creative style of dance and invents wonderful choreography. I appreciate Violet’s positive teaching style for all different levels from beginners to advanced students. I enjoy her holistic approach to dance for the Mind, Body and Spirit. Dance is medicine, a form of healing and therapy. She ties in ritual with the four directions and the elements Earth, Air, Wind and Fire as part of the dance.
The music that we dance to is an essential part of Violet’s dance class experience (other students would agree, the music is great!) She knows some talented musicians and plays their music along with other great tunes! You should definitely check out her classes if you like a well-rounded blend of Tribal Belly Dance & Hip Hop Fusion!”
“I went yesterday and it was amazing! I thought I would be a little out of my comfort zone as a man with no dance experience in a belly dance class, but it was super fun and perfect for men who want to learn how to move their hips!”
“I’ve been afraid to dance all my life, and Violet’s support, embodiment practices, and style of teaching have all helped me begin to occupy my body. It’s seriously revolutionary for me”
“I love Violet’s dance classes.
Skilled, soulful and sultry.”
