is the owner of The Belly Dance Tucson Studio and the creative director of the Belly Dance Tucson Performance Troupe. You can read about Jess’s dance history by visiting the Meet Your Instructor page.
Nini was first attracted to belly dance for the sensuous and playful nature exhibited by so many contemporary performers. Dancing for her is a wonderful way to unwind while listening to great music and making new friends. She began taking classes under Jess Walker and found them to be a challenging and fun way to get moving. It is a thrill and an honor for her to be a part of the Belly Dance Tucson troupe and to be able to dance with such lovely people. Her favorite part of the troupe is how each lady brings her own unique personality to the dance. She has immensely enjoyed exploring her own dance and looks forward to continuing to perform across a wide variety of venues around Tucson!Quote: “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” – Martha Graham
Josie - Movement and performance art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I never would have imagined myself as a belly dancer, but I realized after taking my first class with Jessica about 4 years ago that it was something I wanted to pursue. My previous dance and performance experiences along with a growing interest in yoga made my journey into belly dance a smooth transition. It has been a wonderful creative outlet and there are always new physical challenges and opportunities to learn, from myself as much as from others. I have a growing interest in Tribal Fusion and look up to Rachel Brice, Sera Solstice, Zoe Jakes, among many other dancers. I have realized that belly dance is an art that is never perfected and constantly evolving and growing. I have met a lot of wonderful people through this dance and imagine it will continue to be a big part of my physical and mental health in the years to come.
