You'll find a variety of different styles and levels for everyone.
Hello, my name is Sahra. I'm the studio owner and lead instructor. Dance has always been a passion for me. With over 20 years of experience in dance instruction and performance, I aim to share this joy with you!
I love teaching. In my classes, I provide students opportunities for self-growth through dance in an encouraging supportive environment. Students will learn the fundamentals for a comprehensive belly dance toolkit.
For the past 10 years I've been studying with world renowned belly dancer Rachel Brice and am an 8 Elements Certified Datura Style Teacher ®. My passion for wellness led me to complete Schoolhouse Yoga's 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2014. In 2019, I took the fitness plunge and am now an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Group Fitness Instructor.
I enjoy traveling and combining travel with dance! I've performed at events throughout the country and beyond, including Buffalo, NY; Golden, CO; Morgantown, WV; Cleveland, OH; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA, Las Vegas, NV and multiple times in Toronto, CA . I had the honor of performing in Kami Liddle’s Expansion (2015, 2016), The Lavish Project, 2015, and the Tribal Massive FISSION show as both a soloist and as part of Amy Sigil’s performance intensive in 2019. Throughout my dance journey I've collaborated with local artists on projects large and small. I look forward to more possibilities!

Hi my name is Kristin but you may know me as Morgiana. I am a multi-faceted dancer, performer, and instructor who discovered the joy of Belly Dancing in 2002 and have been sharing it with others ever since. A certified group exercise instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), I have taught classes in Belly Dance, Resistance Band Training, Zumba and more throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area since 2004.
In 2008, I joined my love of belly dance with my first love, theatre, to form Moquette Volante Storytelling and Dance, which reconnects modern audiences to traditional folklore through a combination of dance and spoken word storytelling. You can check out more information at www.moquettevolante.org.
I’m thrilled to be joining the Mosaic team as a guest instructor, occasionally subbing belly dance fitness classes as well as offering specialty workshops that include dancing on goblets and storytelling through dance.
