Angel Belly Dance
Angel Bellydance is a classically trained dancer of many styles including Classical Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern Dance (Limon and Graham techniques), Hip Hop, Latin Dance, Flamenco and Belly Dance. She began her dance training in elementary school and was raised as a competition Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz and Hip Hop dancer. She then began her professional dance, modeling and acting career at the age of 18 and has had the privilege of teaching and performing in various cities such as NYC, San Juan (Puerto Rico), Las Vegas, Orlando, Denver, Los Angeles, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Miami, and Washington DC.
At the start of her career, Angel began working as a professional dancer in Puerto Rican tourism shows in hotels, resorts, casinos and cruise ships throughout the entire island. Angel was then introduced to Latin Dance and learned through extensive training by the choreographers and directors of the shows. However, the show which had the greatest influence on Angel’s cross-over (Ballet/Jazz into Latin Dance and Flamenco) was with “Juan Carlos and His Latin Traditions”, which was (and still is) the longest running show in Latin America. She was honored to perform with them for 15 years while also traveling back and forth between New York and Puerto Rico. Throughout her performance career, she continued her dance training in Ballet, Jazz and Latin Jazz in the Broadway Dance Center (NYC) where she was a faithful student of world renowned instructors such as Jhesus Aponte and the late Frank Hatchett.
