    Default "I danced myself right out the womb..."

    My name is Marissa-Julia and "I danced myself right out the womb." It's one of my greatest passions and I think I'll be 105 and still wiggling around to every song I hear.

    I've danced ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, some hip hop, and some ballroom. I competed for many years, too. But it wasn't until I was 15 that I discovered belly dance. My parents didn't approve so I promised myself when I went to college I'd save up and find a way to do it on my own.

    Unfortunately, I became ill and was unable for quite sometime. But when I was fully recovered about a year ago I met my fiance and he encouraged me to do what I love best.

    So here I am! Ready to shimmy and shake and be a part of a community that has inspired me for years. I hope to not just be a professional one day, but a great dancer. I can't go a day without dancing, watching dancing, or reading about dancing. So I'm excited to hear all the advice and stories you all have to offer!

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)
