DeAnna Freeman

DeAnna has studied and taught FatChanceBellyDance® Style, or FCBD® Style (formerly known as American Tribal Style or ATS®) belly dance and yoga for over 18 years.
She has a passion for the artistic qualities as well as the scientific and structural elements of movement and believes in the power of these practices to align the mind and the body. She has spent years exploring how these relate to holistic and artist components of dance and yoga.
Her dance journey began when she met Megha, Director of Devyani Dance Company in 2004 and fell in love with FCBD®Style.
Since then, DeAnna has dedicated her dance career to receiving the highest level of training and establishing herself as a leading professional in the FCBD®Style community.
She was in the very first to receive Sister Studio and Teacher Certification outside of FatChance BellyDance®, is one of the few FatChance Continuing Education instructors in the world, was part of the inaugural FCBD®Style Advanced Teaching Training group, and had the pleasure of teaching and performing throughout the United States as well as in India.
Her love of dance, movement and anatomy also led her to immerse herself in yoga study, becoming a registered Yoga Alliance Teacher (200hr and then 500hr RYT) and gaining a number of specialty certifications. She is a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Certified Education Provider) and is currently taking her second 500hr training to become a Yoga Therapeutic Specialist through Yoga Medicine.
DeAnna’s classes empower her students to align their mind and body through dance and yoga.
Through gaining an awareness of the scientific and structural elements of movement, together with an appreciation for the holistic and artist components, students unlock the hidden potential that is already within themselves. She prides herself on a relaxed and professional teaching style that allows students to elevate their skills in a safe, positive and fun learning environment.

Moria Chappell

Moria Chappell

Moria Chappell is a world-renowned performance artist, dance instructor, ancient dance researcher, artistic director, and costume designer who specializes in Fusion & Experimental Belly Dance, Temple Dance, and Indian Odissi Classical Dance. She has performed, taught, and researched ancient dance in more than 50 countries over her 20-year dance career.

Known for her archetypal approach to performance craft, her style is both feminine and fierce, ancient and modern, sacred and strange.

A popular and sought after teacher, Moria has developed a unique methodology and approach to belly dance control, the foundation of which is her trademark teaching style: Muscular Belly Dance Technique (MBDT). MBDT synthesizes the intensity and precision that epitomizes Fusion Belly Dance isolation and individualism.

The diaspora of movement from which she engages and connects ancient dance via modern Muscular Belly Dance Technique creates innovation in movement, increases the palette of movement art, and explores ancient methods of physical language and body articulation to create an exquisite and rich pastiche of original and experimental dance.

Moria researches world temple dances by traveling to countries along the ancient trade routes that connected Asia and the Indonesian and Polynesian islands with India, North Africa, Mesopotamia and early Mediterrnean civilizations over 5,000 years ago. Finding seed movements that are linguistic tags connecting an ancestry of ancient dances going back millennia, her performances and trademark style represent a conversation of various ancient temple dance technique as it has survived and developed through the ages.

Her field of research and study include Fusion Belly Dance, Odissi Indian Temple Dance, Javanese Solo Dance, Cambodian and Chinese Apsara Dance, Chinese Dai and Thai Peacock Dance, Hula and Polynesian Dance, Tibetan and Nepalese Tantric Dance, North African and Middle Eastern Belly Dance, Spanish Flamenco, and Balkan-style movements.
