Aradia Sunseri ~ healing through the art of bellydance & the creatrix of "Ritual Movement Arts"
I first fell in love with dance when I was 4 years old, watching Sufi whirling dances my mother would take me to. I then was raised studying ballet, jazz & modern From 5 years old to my teens. I have always felt the intrinsic connection between dance metaphysics & yoga.
In 1999 I found the art of fire dancing and began making my own fire tools and performing with the Burning man community in the fire conclaves. This was pure magic! I felt an outlet for wild self-expression & my heart soared infusing all my years of dance training into a new form collaborating with other dancers & circus arts performers. Theatrical rituals, enacting myths & performing elements of butoh became the highlights of my performances.This was the doorway that lead me directly to Tribal Fusion Belly dance In 2004 I instantly fell in love with the energy, costuming & community of this dance style. I felt a soul kinship with these women whom wanted to empower one another and co create a supportive platform for sharing our ancestral lineages & beliefs about the Feminine divine.
I feel the importance of sharing the honoring of all my teachers whom have guided & supported me with bright open hearts. And it is always nature, my greatest teacher that replenishes me. This well of inspiration allows me to teach a well-versed and unique offering of how different elements inspire my practice, which then ripples out into my teaching. I am presently working with many multimedia artists on video and large stage production for festivals & temple events.
