Kaitlyn is an international bellydance instructor and performer based in Eastern North Carolina.

She started her journey in dance at an early age with formal classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Gymnastics. Deciding to pursue music and visual arts in her later childhood, dance was something she could never shake and luckily found her way back to it via Bellydance as an adult. Finding immense inspiration in Middle Eastern dance, she immersed herself in various styles of the art that include Egyptian Oriental & Folkloric, American Cabaret, American Tribal Style® and Tribal Fusion.
