Shauna has had a passion for dance all her life. She has dabbled in many forms from hip hop to ballroom but was primarily trained in ballet, jazz and modern for 10 years at Alberta Ballet School (later Dance Alberta). In 2008, after becoming a mom, she took her first belly dance class to get out for a fun activity and her love affair with Middle Eastern belly dance began. She has studied extensively with Aurora at Move Studios and other local instructors such as Aldiya and Anya and has had the privilege of attending workshops with internationally renowned stars such as Nath Keo, Sadie Marquardt, Hadia and Aziza. Shauna is excited to now share her love of this art form with students of her own.
