Classes: FatChance BellyDance Style

CrystalZ fell in love with FatChance BellyDance Style (FCBD) Belly Dance when she saw two ladies, her size, hypnotize an audience with their hips. And she said "I want to do that!" She began to study FCBD with and has never looked back. FCBD Style became her focus, her savior, her passion.

CrystalZ has been dancing FCBD Belly Dance since 2006. She is a founding member of Kiss My Shimmy, Zephyranthes, and Tamarind.

In 2008, CrystalZ became a certified FatChance BellyDance Style teacher. She began teaching because she wanted to share with other women, "we all have a Goddess within us" and FCBD allows you to find her. FCBD is not about what size you are, but about being strong, feminine, and most of all beautiful. You create this beauty by moving in sync with your sisters as a group and within this harmony you allow your inner Goddess to shine through.

CrystalZ loves to create beauty in her dance and though crafting. She vends handmade belly dance accessories and clothing under the label More Flair by CrystalZ.

Classes: Foundations of BellyDance

Lily Fibonacci
started off her belly dance journey during college where she discovered Lori Dale's Cabaret style classes offered in Kenosha. Falling in love with the fierce femininity of the movements and style, she dove right in and choreographed group and solo performances with fellow students at Carthage College. Fast forward to 2015, after a hiatus of living in France and traveling the globe, she moved back to Milwaukee. There, she discovered FCBD Style belly dance, and later Tribal Fusion, at Tamarind studio, where she honed her skills and learned the value and joy of true dedication to practice, playfulness, and community. Rachel continues to train in various belly dance styles and performs solo acts, with FCBD students, and with Tamarind Fuze.

Former member of Tashakur (FCBD), Current member of Tamarind Fuze (Tribal Fusion).
