About Us

At Sacred Circle, we understand that many (all) women have some form of insecurity in their self-image. We work on the 'Feel Good, Look Good' principal - not the other way around. By embracing our feminity and finding strength in ourselves, we reach a new level in self-confidence. Improved self-image. Improved spiritual, mental, and physical health.
 
Every woman has talents. Learning to focus on and enhance them is the first step to regaining feminine power.  Most people think you have to be thin to belly dance - but that is wrong. Here are a few myths that we should clear up.
 
1. All women are self-conscious to some degree about their bodies. We all think there is something wrong with us. No matter what.
 
2.  Having a belly, being voluptuous, actually gives a belly dancer more to work with. Skinny figures are at a huge disadvantage in belly dance.
 
3.  Belly dancing has nothing to do with men, dancing for men, certainly not created by men.  It is a dance form for women. Created by women.  To be danced with each other without disgrace or judgment.
 
4.  The dance of the seven veils is not about nudity or sensuality. It is about unveiling the most magnificent of costumes, one that friends and sisters alike will 'oooooh' and 'aaahhhhhhh' over.
 
5.  You don't have to be a dancer to dance.  There is no more beautiful way to stay healthy and active while being the ultimate in femininity.
 
6.  Dancing is for women of all ages.  We actually become more in tune with our inner goddess as we age.......LET HER OUT!!
 
Come and join our top quality instructors, certified in fitness & dance, and embrace YOU.

Sherry took her first belly dancing class over 7 years ago and quickly fell in love.

She has studied in both Oriental and Tribal Fusion over the years, but is most passionate for American Tribal Style belly dance. She attended her ATS Teacher Training and earned her certification in October 2018 and is now a Fat Chance Belly Dance Certified Instructor.

She is also certified and leads weekly classes in Bellyfit.

In addition, Sherry supplements her training by attending various local and international dance workshops, and assists when she can with administrative support for the studio.
