I started with formal training as a young girl in ballet & flamenco. In my twenties I studied Martha Graham’s Modern Dance technique at Brooklyn College for 2 years and Belly Dance in Greenwich Village, New York. I left my dancing career for a CPA career, a husband and 2 great kids. In 1998 I came back to formally studying dance, and in 2002 I gave up my corporate career and returned to dance full time, it’s my passion. Dancing and passion is how I got the courage to leave my lucrative career and open the Goddess Store & Studio.
