About the Actor

~~~ NARAH ~~~ In May of 1993, Narah saw a group of Belly Dancers perform at a festival in Hurricane, WV. As soon as she saw them, she knew she had to bellydance. Shortly after, she began lessons with Amie Lamborn and has been dancing ever since. Her first performance was a few months after seeing the Belly Dancers at the festival. Coming from a cheerleading background, performing was not new and her love of this dance kept her practicing constantly. She began teaching regular bellydance classes in 1997, and has taught regular classes in Morgantown, WV, Charleston, WV (no longer there... please keep reading) and at festivals in Pennsylvania, and Mississippi. Narah s bellydance style is Tribal Fusion- a blending of several bellydance forms. She uses the term Tribal Fusion because she uses movements, frame work, music and costuming elements of American Tribal Style as well as choosing her favorite Oriental style movements and putting them in a Tribal context. Narah has learned from, among others, the following well established professional belly dancers: As an Occupational Therapist, Narah has been thoroughly trained in and is able to apply the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, neurology, exercise physiology, proper body mechanics, task analysis, sensory integration and it's implications, adapting a motor learning program to individual needs, assessing proper posture and alignment, and considering a person's whole lifestyle when making recommendations. Her students appreciate her precise break down of the movements and her ability to present several methods of learning a movement or series of movements. She has been studying yoga since 1996 and has discovered new principles about the body, mind and spirit in that time. She was certified in Yoga for the Special Child (TM) in 2004 and deepened her knowledge and understanding of yoga and its healing properties. Her training as an Occupational Therapist and study of yoga both compliment her Dance and her abilities as a belly dance teacher. From Narah: "Through belly dance, I reach my highest level. It is extremely spiritually, emotionally, and physically healing for me, and is my passion. I am fascinated by the history, costuming, culture, and music surrounding the dance." These interests and her study of them gives depth to her teaching and dance styles. Currently, Narah is teaching Belly Dance classes in Morgantown, WV. Narah and her students - the Tribe of Fire- recently completed the Fire of the Soul tour. This imaginative tour traveled throughout the North East US inviting local guests to perform. A video of selected performances of Narah throughout the tour is available! Okhtee, a performance video by Narah and her sister Jala is now available! ~~~ JALA ~~~ Jala began Belly Dancing more than a decade ago and its joys never cease to amaze her. With a deep interest in Anthropology, Belly Dance gives her an opportunity to experience rich culture and connect with people even without words. Jala made a performance DVD, Okhtee, with her sister Narah. Jala's enthusiasm for natural health, her background in Medical Laboratory Sciences, and her Pilates and Yoga practices combine for a deep understanding of the body and people as a Whole. Jala greatly enjoys sharing Belly Dance and all that it has to offer. The Earth Movement Studio is very excited to have her teaching there! Edit
