About Andria Perkins
Andria began her study of Middle Eastern dance and culture when she was sixteen, after many years of ballet and modern dance training. After graduating from university, she decided to study the dance at its source, living and working in Cairo, Egypt for a year. She then moved to the tribal belly dance hotbed that is the California Bay Area, where she spent two years studying with many of the movement's pioneers. (Her favorite belly dance mentors include Rachel Brice and Suhaila Salimpour.) In 2002, she opened her own school of belly dance in in Chattanooga, TN. It still flourishes today. She is the recipient of a grant from Allied Arts which allowed her to live and study flamenco in Southern Spain. The eternal student, Andrea continues to explore as many dance forms as she possibly can. She is also a certified yoga instructor. Andria's method of breaking down the ABCs of belly dance appeal to students who have little or no dance background, while still challenging those who do. Her goal as a teacher is not to douse people in sequins and push them into the spotlight, but to help them harness the transformative powers of this unique and ancient art form. During the thirteen years she's been teaching, she has witnessed miracles.
