Megan Marchese, RYT 200
Megan was introduced to the world of belly dance when a friend convinced her to take a free beginner American Tribal Style(ATS) belly dance class at a community center in 2003. She fell in love with everything about tribal style belly dance. After taking the free class for several months, she moved on to taking Intermediate and Advanced tribal classes in PA. In 2007 she began teaching privately, and along with directing an Improvisational Tribal Style(ITS) student troupe, she is also co-director of a tribal fusion belly dance troupe. Megan performs at several faires and belly dance events during the year with both her fusion troupe and her student troupe.
For Megan, the sense of community when dancing in a group, the connection between the body, mind, and the ground beneath the feet creates a joyful experience every time the music begins. For more information on her beginner belly dance class, and to see notes from previous classes, please visit www.shantidance.wordpress.com.
Megan has completed the 200 hour Ayurvedic Yoga teacher training at Live in Joy Yoga & Wellness, and is currently working on the 300 hour program there as well. She has found purpose and joy in teaching classes, and helping others to discover greater peace and well-being.
