Amorina Stone is a belly dance instructor and massage therapist at Arabesque World Dance. She began dancing at age 17 when she was first inspired by dancers in the SCA (society of creative anachronism). Watching their graceful movements around a bonfire circled by live drummers was like viewing a fairy tale come to life. Within the SCA she learned from a multitude of dancers with a wide range of styles and decided she couldn’t get enough. When she moved to NYC she learned from Oreet of Sharqi Belly Dance and from Zenaida and Blanca of Serena Studios. Returning to KY she continues to learn and be inspired by Safiya Nawaar and Troupe Hala Alimah. Over a decade has passed since she began dancing and she is happy to share all that she has learned and is continuing to learn to the students of Arabesque World Dance.
