Haunani Ramil

Haunani began Bellydancing at the age of 20. In her early Bellydance years she studied Egyptian Cabaret from a local teacher, Shadiya. Not too long after, she began taking classes from Kalae Kaina at a dance studio near her home. She went to see Shakti Dance Movement perform at a local hot spot and was totally captivated. There was fire, beautiful fluid bellydance, and a community of women on the stage. She has been a dedicated member and student of Shakti Dance Movement for over 10 years. Tribal Fusion Bellydance has been an array of life experiences for her–an expression of art, empowerment, health/wellness, the learner/the teacher/the performer, a spiritual practice, but most importantly the gift of sisterhood and feminine wisdom. She is so grateful for all the love and support from her family and all who support her love of dance

Instructor Bio and Contact:

Sammie (Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/SammieinHawaii/, email: sammieinhawaii@gmail.com)

Sammie’s love of belly dance began when she joined the student organization, Hill and Veil at Virginia Tech in Spring of 2007. For the rest of her time as an undergraduate, a Master’s student, and a Doctoral student, Sammie remained involved with belly dance as a way to stay active, relieve stress, and make lifelong friendships – things that she hopes to bring to University of Hawaii students (Manoa and West Oahu) through the student organization, Belly Dance Raqs.

As a dancer, Sammie continually seeks to challenge herself through participating in workshops and classes with a variety of instructors, creating new choreographies, and performance! She has had the amazing opportunity to take lessons and/or workshops with Malia Delapenia, Thana Tarab, Elena Faye, Sabah, Victoria Teel, Moria Chappell, Bagoas, Madame Onca, Petite Jamilla, Bozenka, and Frank Farinaro – all of which have played a role in her growth and development as a dancer.

While Sammie will always miss her belly dance family on the East Coast, she is excited to have a new belly dance family here in Hawaii, and to spread her love of dance even further! Sammie is currently available for private events and workshops.
