ABOUT ARALIA PEARL: A NOT SO *DUM* BLONDE WHO *TEKS* A LOT
Okay, so Aralia is not a dumb blonde at all (though she does talk a lot), but dums and teks are what belly dance music is made of. Known for mixing humor and grace, Aralia is a crowd favorite at local Western MA venues including: The Goddess Lounge, Cairo Cabaret, The Bellydance Connection, and more. Aralia is a member of the Crescent Dancers, and one spunky half of Eidetic.
Aralia is based in the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts.
DANCE IS FUN! We dance before we walk, let's rediscover this together. Belly dance looks different on every body. It's not about copying someone else, but discovering how movements feel on your body. Aralia's performances and classes are a safe space to get in touch with your own dancing. More glitter less bitter!

How I got Here
Aralia's instruction started with Sahina Bellydance. Falling madly in love with the dance (and the community it brought with it) once Aralia started dancing she found she couldn't stop. She has since studied with teachers from around the globe and is nurtured through dance troupe and partnerships.
