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.
Suzanne first began her belly dance life around 1990 and had the honor of becoming an early member of FatChanceBellyDance® where she stayed for several years.
Her other love, studying and teaching the art of herbal lore pulled her in another direction until 2007 when she was compelled to return to her beloved ATS®.
A devoted student, she once again, was graced with the opportunity of becoming a FCBD® member and for the past 2 years has thoroughly enjoyed the company of her fellow dancers and her passion for teaching.
