Rin is rooted in twenty years of exposure to a diverse array of movement styles, overlapping a decade of belly dance experience. In 2007, she began cultivating a passion for belly dance at Sahara Dance in Washington, D.C. From 2010-2013, Rin studied under Ebony Qualls as a member of the urban fusion troupe, Raqs Caravan Urban (RCU). She additionally worked to hone a technical foundation for Tribal Fusion style belly dance through extensive training with Rachel Brice of Portland, OR, in her 8 Elements™ program and various intensives. Rin holds with her the intention to remain as focused, generous, and compassionate as her instructors.
As curiosity accelerates, Rin continues to expand toward contemporary styles of fusion in belly dance and beyond. Her unique style has led her to contribute choreography for multiple dance collaborations and projects, including the theatrical production Bellydance Evolution (BDE), as well as Electric Nomad’s “Oceanic” and “Eternal Forest” productions in Richmond, VA.
Rin has come to find her own voice in dance with an evolving style she currently describes as “experimental” fusion, occasionally reaching beyond genre-specific dance. In recent years, her musical ear has brought her on a new journey of composing music electronically, inspiring her to form Myriad, a dance project featuring artistically diverse casts of dancers with performances set to original electronically-composed music.
Rin continues to share her appreciation for movement and its inevitable connection with all aspects of life through learning, teaching, performing, and collaborating. With this in mind, she works to foster environments in which dancers can feel personally inspired by curiosity to develop their own vision.
