Charlie is one of AFBD's founding instructors. After almost 10 years teaching continuously at the studio, Charlie relocated to California but we still consider her part of our AFBD family...forever!


Since her first belly dance class in 2003, Charlie has been in love with art of Middle Eastern dance and dedicated herself to its study. She has taught and danced professionally in the Atlanta area for many years. While formally trained in traditional and cabaret styles, her dancing has evolved into an eclectic fusion of ancient desert and modern urban sensibilities.  Elements of tribal, hip hop, modern and ballet blend with her technical foundation to create a deeply individual dance experience. Fluid, sensual with just a hint of darkness, Charlie’s style is a marriage of her two favorite things in life … belly dance and rock-n-roll.
