Isis

 

 








Dancer, choreographer, teacher, director, costume designer, vendor, event sponsor, publisher... the list goes on, and if there is something left to do, this woman will certainly do it!  Known for her fun, energetic shows and her long, fire-engine red hair, Isis owns one of the largest belly dance studios in Texas and hosts one of the largest Middle Eastern dance events in the Southwest, Yaa Halla, Y'all. Along with these accomplishments, she also formed a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, The Isis Foundation, which helps to broaden and enlighten the general public's awareness of related cultural aspects of Oriental Dance. Isis is also the publisher and editor of The Chronicles...A Belly Dancer's Oasis, a magazine which she created in 2003. This amazing business woman is the epitome of multi-faceted success in the industry. Isis is both a pioneer and forerunner in the local and national belly dance community.
