Rubia is a Baltimore/Annapolis-area belly dancer, who has been performing professionally for a decade. She also dances with the professional belly dance troupe, Meridian Dance Company. She has performed at parties, weddings, festivals, and fundraising events throughout the area.
Rubia's love of Middle eastern music and dance was sparked by her mother who studied belly dance in the 1970s and 1980s. With her mother's encouragement, she began taking classes from June of Ithaca, NY. After moving to Baltimore in 2007, she began studying under R'aina of Baltimore, then began dancing in R'aina's Meridian Dance Company. She is one of the company's principal dancers, and she will occasionally substitute teach for R'aina's all-levels belly dance class in the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore. She has also taught at Typhrodisia's Bellydance and Beyond in Severna Park, MD and Striving to Be Better Fitness in Glen Burnie, MD.
She looks forward to sharing her love of this beautiful dance with you!
