Thirteen women joined SERCCA for the introductory belly dancing workshop on Saturday, April 16th. Six of the participants made the trip from Riverside Glen, a Schlegel Villages location in Guelph, Ontario.
Workshop leader Danielle Lottridge has been dancing ever since she learned to walk; she enrolled in ballet at age 3, and studied jazz, tap and piano throughout her childhood and adolescence. Danielle continued taking different styles of dance until she found belly dance and fell deeply in love. Danielle has been performing professionally since 2005, in high quality venues such as the Enwave Harbourfront Theatre in Toronto and the Crucible in San Francisco. She has taught regular classes for over three years, including workshops at McMaster University. Danielle holds a doctorate in human factors, and brings expertise in ergonomics and applied psychology to create a safe and enjoyable environment in her classes.
