Ashley Enright
  Ashley began her path into belly dance at age 17 as a tool to move past a shyness she felt was no longer serving her. From that first class on she has been thrilled to be a part of the community always learning, observing and exploring all that dance has to offer. She has studied in many styles ranging from classical Raqs Sharqi, to earthy American Tribal Style and folkloric dances of North Africa, to the contemporary leanings of Tribal Fusion. For her, dance is not lim
ited to performance but an integrative art form of self-expression, transformation and connection. She has been honored to perform at the Mountain Jam festival, as part of the spiritual belly dance play “The Joining”, has appeared on the DVD “Belly Dance with Snakes: Embody Your Inner Serpent,” with multi discipline performances such as “IMPETUS – A Forum for Artistic Spontaneity,” with the Coterminous Collectiv electronic musician collective as well as many community and private events.
