Hey I’m Lisa. I’ve been learning with Bellydancingbarbie for about two years.
I first experienced belly dance when I was about 12 years old. On holiday in Spain with my mum we attended a cabaret show and I’ve been hooked ever since! I decided to take up lessons after my mum passed away as it was something we had both wanted to do.
Since joining Lindsey’s classes I’ve performed at the Edinburgh festival and won third place in the group category at Miss Fabulous Belly Dance Competition. I’ve now joined Team BDB as an intern hoping to increase my skills and knowledge even more.
My love of tribal style dance reflects my love of music. Finding alternative music to use in dancing has become something of an obsession! I love that like music, belly dance is something which everybody can relate to, no matter what language we speak.
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
