About Kay as a Belly Dancer

Kay was a dancer all through childhood, from age 4 to 18, in the styles of tap, acro and jazz. After college, she desperately missed dance and studied various styles informally, including ballroom, Zumba (R), bhangra, pole and especially belly dance.

In early 2018, she began to take classes regularly at House of Hips with Mandy Poreda, and quickly found that it was meant to be a passion instead of a hobby. She started practicing several times a week on her own, and was invited to join the House of Hips resident dance troupe, Zuut.

In June of 2022, Kay was invited to teach a beginner class at Hair Shop 777, a hair salon in Cheektowaga. Mindy, the owner of the salon, wanted to have classes as an effort to bring more accessible wellness opportunities to the clientele and the neighborhood. The class enjoyed their first showcase for Mardi Gras 2023.

As excitement around this grew, Kay was contacted by her former pole instructor to begin teaching at a new dance studio, Sparkles Universal Studio in Tonawanda. Kay began teaching belly dance there in May 2023.

As a dancer, Kay enjoys exploring diverse music styles to improvise and choreograph with. She also enjoys the use of props, especially balancing sword, and is currently strenghtening her skills with zills, veil, fan veil and poi.

Kay plans to journey to Portland in March of 2024 to begin the 8 Elements dance intensive training with Rachel Brice at Datura Studio.
