In 2005, Sally began a new chapter in her life: belly dance with teacher Martina Crowe-Hewitt. Since then, Sally has been dedicated to the belly dance art form. In 2008, Sally began to train under Suhaila Salimpour, whose mathematical style of teaching really spoke to her. Sally integrates Suhaila’s format into her own teaching, and continues to train.
