Shanti performs and teaches Tribal Fusion belly dance, specializing in fusing Arabic Folk Dance with contemporary dance and her own aesthetic. She does both improvisational and choreographed dancing, enjoying the different creative processes.
Having studied western dance and yoga for many years before belly dancing, Shanti understands the body’s movement from the inside out.
She currently performs as a soloist in the Bay Area and collaborates with fellow dancers throughout the West Coast.

After 5 years of Cabaret style belly dance, Shanti saw Rachel Brice perform at The Roxy in 2007 and began exploring this new world of Tribal Fusion.
Since then she has studied intensively with Rachel and is a certified 8 Elements Practitioner. She is also FCBD General Skills certified through Carolena Nericcio.
