About Nielle - Webmistress of Shimmygoddess.com
Hi! My name
is Nielle (pronounced KNEE - L) and I'm so happy you're exploring my little
In the end of May 2008, I moved to Littleton, CO (now living in Lakewood) and am taking classes (and teaching) in the Denver, Colorado area. So this site has started to include resources in that area as well.
I have been
belly dancing since 1998 and have officially become an addict! I've been
performing off and on since 2001, and it gets slightly less scary each
jazz, ballet and modern dance, belly dance has become a wonderfully exotic
and fun form of expression for me.
In Colorado I have taken extensively with Kaya and Sadie and some with Suzanna Del Vecchio. At this point in the game, I'm ready to teach and share my love of the dance with others and cultivate friendships and community in the process.
In the dance classes I teach, I try to incorporate a positive, empowering message each week. Please check out my blog to read some of the messages I share with my students.
Please email me if you have any questions, or if you want to hire me to belly dance for a show, event or occasion or if you're interested in lessons.
Go forth and shimmy! :-)
