For the Socially Isolated
One of my secret super-powers comes from how often I dance in my kitchen. Or bathroom. Or other random places at random hours. Here I don't care about executing the proper technique or creating sound choreographic theory or having "perfect" placement. I don't really care about much of anything except having fun and feeling good. I'm pretty much just being a big kid, playing with my toys, and generally engaging in Dorkaliciousness. This will cheer me up on a gloomy day, so I hope it does for you, too!
Come hang out with me while we're socially distanced. Welcome to my kitchen. XXXOOO
Nicknamed BellaDancer in college, Isidora has been a dancer and writer all her life. Her degrees through the U of MN are in History and Dance, and she has studied various stage & folk dances from around the world, blending them with her decades of martial arts training, meditative and soul-searching practices, and with her love of storytelling and theater.
While her 25-year career as a belly dancer has taken her around the world to teach and perform, her entanglement with a drunk driver in 2000 has taken her into the depths of rehabilitation and continuous self-reinvention.
The drills she created for herself during physical therapy are now a foundation of her dance technique. In contrast, her Elements System explores musicality, expression, the qualities of movement and the impact it has on our life. As an artistic athlete with injuries from foot to head, including Traumatic Brain Injury, she is a creative solution ninja hacker. This System is a main component of that.
Isidora is hailed as an innovator, Muse, benevolent butt-whupper, and healer. Both Bella and the ‘Beast of Hartebeast Lair, she is an elemental alchemist, devoted to transforming life’s beauty and crappioka pudding into art.
