About Sarah Schneider Koning
Belly Dance is my joie de vivre! I've studied the art for over fifteen years, including the historical and cultural aspects of the dance. Arab dress, costuming and ornamentation are especially intriguing to me.
I am the Artistic Director of Boheme. We focus primarily on Tribal Style Belly Dance, including ITS, Gothic and Fusion. Members are also well versed in the traditional and folk dances of the Middle East.
