HAUNANI RAMIL

haunani

Haunani began Bellydancing at the age of 20. In her early Bellydance years she studied Egyptian Cabaret from a local teacher, Shadyia. She also began taking Tribal Fusion 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.
