Fat Chance Belly Dance Teachers Biography
(bientôt en français)
Growing up in a Fairview Park, Ohio, Anita Lalwani was a bookworm. While she dabbled in athletics (tennis, skiiing, and even synchronized swimming!), it was not until she moved to San Francisco and met Carolena Nericcio that she fell in love with one activity-- American Tribal Style® (ATS®) bellydance! Her devotion to the ATS® dance form became so strong that Anita extracted herself from her administrative office job to embrace the art of movement and physical fitness full time. She became a certified yoga teacher in 2005 and a personal fitness trainer in 2008. These skills have enhanced her teaching of bellydance and helped her to develop a popular Dance Conditioning class that blends yoga, dance drills, and strength training for the ATS® belly dancer. Anita has been dancing with FatChanceBellyDance® and instructing classes for over a decade. In her workshops and classes, Anita shares with her students her passion and belief in the transformative power of music and dance.
I’m lucky enough to have been a FCBD® troupe member since 2005, studying directly under Carolena Nericcio since 2003. This means being in the studio 3+ days a week, blood sweat and tears, side by side with the greats of ATS® ie: Carolena Nericcio, Wendy Allen, Anita Lalwani, Sandi Ball, Marsha Poulin, Colette Todorov, Jessie Gauld, Karen Gehrman and the likes. I know my ATS®. Make sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from me as I wind my way around the world. I can’t wait to sweat it out with all you lovlies!
