Megan's Dance Bio
Megan Yalkut has studied Middle Eastern Dance since 1995 with a variety of master teachers in CA and CO, her primary teacher being the illustrious Alexandra King (voted best instructor in America by The Belly Dance Academy Award Committee) with whom she studied privately for 4 years as well as attending her group classes. Her in depth studies of Middle Eastern Dance have included cabaret, folkloric, and gypsy styles from Egypt, Turkey, Persia, Greece, Central Europe, and India. Additionally, she has an extensive background in modern, contact improv, jazz and a 10 yr. foundation in ballet and began performing various forms of dance at the age of 14. Her study of belly dance began with the desire to prepare for child-birth and grew into a great love for the dance as an art form and performance venue.

Megan has performed and taught belly dance and children’s creative movement in CA, CO, IA, VA, and GA as well as studying and performing music and dance in India and Nepal. She recently moved back to Boulder, CO and is offering Belly Dance instruction in her new downtown home studio. Please check the class and events page regularly for updates.
