Her passion for FCBD® style dance and her desire to share it with others lead her to complete her General Skills certification in 2010 and 2015, and her Teacher Training in 2012, when she also became a Partner Studio.
Since then, she has continued her education attending workshops each year, since she believes in life-long learning. She is honored to be an Advanced Teacher Training graduate (2016) and certified Continuing Education instructor, and she cannot wait to dance with you!

Virginia is originally from Spain, but she moved to the U.S. in 2001, finally settling down in Indiana. Her dance journey began in Ohio in 2005. While taking dance classes, she met a girl wearing a tassel belt and she was in awe of this new style. She immediately searched the web and found Fat Chance Belly Dance®. She was hooked. She started taking a 3-hour round trip once a week to take classes with Angie Never of Sacred Shimmy in Columbus and then studied with Ann Shaffer of Dark Side when she moved to Bloomington, eventually becoming a troupe member and then the troupe's director.
